Composite materials is well suited for many civil applications due to its low weight - high strength ratio, long design life, low maintenance cost, simple and cost effective installation and competitive purchasing cost.
The low weight of the composite pedestrian bridges for roads and rails allows an effective installation. For example, a 20 meter bridge span was installed in 40 minutes using a relatively small mobile crane. Foundations can be built for the bridge landings without disturbing the traffic if the bridge shall cross a road or rail. The traffic/train need to stop for a short period (2-4 hrs with safety margins) during lifting/installation.
We have delivered bridges spanning up to 60 meters. CSUB/HighComp can also supply heavy duty bridges.
CSUB has been a partner for the development and supply of floating swimming pools. As part of this range, there has also been developed a number of floating utility buildings for shower/changing rooms, saunas, beach clubs etc.
