Underhung Floor Beam Truss Pedestrian Bridge

Underhung Floor Beam
When clearance below the bridge is critical, this parallel chord style offers the shortest superstructure depth in a bridge design. An Underhung truss has its floor beams welded to the bottom of the bottom chords. It’s best suited for pedestrian bridges with spans up to 20 m, but is available in spans up to 35 m.

H-Section Floor Beam Truss Pedestrian Bridge

H-Section Floor Beam
For spans up to 50 m, the H-Section bridge design is often selected for the most efficient superstructure. This parallel chord truss bridge design has its floor beams welded to vertical members of the side trusses. As with all styles, the H-Section can be created with additional camber for a more graceful look.

Bowstring Truss Pedestrian Bridge

With elegant top chords arching up from its base, the Bowstring bridge design is the perfect combination of visual appeal and design efficiency. Bowstring is available with spans up to 60 m in an underhung configuration and up to 61 m as an H-Section.

Modified Bowstring Truss Pedestrian Bridge

Modified Bowstring
Available in similar spans as the Bowstring, the Modified Bowstring bridge design is a more economical choice when an arched top chord is desired. The less-pronounced arch still adds some beauty to the superstructure, while keeping the budget in check.

tag: Box Truss Pedestrian Bridge

For grade separations and enclosed walkways, the Box style bridge design is the preferred choice as it allows easy attachment of fencing or glazing on the sides and/or top, when required. Numerous architectural screen, roofing and branding options can also be incorporated. Maximum span is 80 m.
