Our sister company, Atlantic Industries Limited (AIL), came to us with a customer in need of a fast, short-term solution for a pedestrian crossing over a waterway in Fort Mac. With a small alteration for their specific needs, our standard, in-stock Algonquin Modular Panel Bridge was delivered, assembled and placed in no time.
Discover the benefits of renting bridges from Algonquin
Algonquin Bridge stocks a wide range of Pedestrian Bridge Rental components, ready to ship across Canada for virtually any application– highway, off-road industrial, pedestrian or utility. And, just like our bridge component inventory, the benefits are stacked in your favour:
- Keep costs to timeframe of need
- Free up capital for other purposes
- No maintenance or storage expenses
- Improves project balance sheet and ROI
The customer had originally planned for a 2.1 m width bridge with steel decking. Our in-stock Algonquin rental units are 3.16 m wide and are configured for epoxy-aggregate coated steel deck panels. They were happy to have a slightly wider bridge as long as they had it quickly, so we made a slight alteration to our standard transoms to allow for steel deck fastening.
Our 7th bridge in Fort Mac
Our project partners were already familiar with Algonquin’s products and service, as we had installed six bridges in the area prior to this opportunity.
