Fast, Easy, Low-Cost Installation with Proven Durability. MULTI-PLATE structures, consisting of field bolted galvanized steel plates, have a long history of strength, durability and economy. The structures offer high combined live and dead loads and are well-suited for deep cover applications.
Developed over 75 years ago, MULTI-PLATE is available in spans to 26 feet, and can be arranged and curved to make a variety of shapes including pipe, pipe-arch, horizontal and vertical ellipses, arches and underpasses. Benefits of MULTI-PLATE systems:
- Buried Bridge Structure - Reduces maintenance costs and lowers life cycle costs as there are no bridge deck or joints at the deck/roadway interface.
- Modular Bridge System - Rapid installation results in reduced overall project costs, delays and detours.
- Designed “Site Specific” - Meets your site needs in full compliance with AASHTO, ASTM & AREMA design standards for highway and railway use.
- Easy Site Adaptability - Flexible layout options to fit within the right-of-way - curve the structure with a stream or adjust for vertical and horizontal clearance requirements
