Comprising of a minimum number of different components the Unibridge® can be erected in a short time in response to a natural disaster or other event where current infrastructure has been damaged and needs immediate replacement. All bridge connections are made with either pins or bolts and there is no need for any specialist tools such as pneumatic or electric powered tools – the bridge components are manufactured to be connected using pins and bolts without the need for any welding on site. Unibridge® Trading has significant manufacturing capability across a number of factories and this allows us to meet stringent delivery deadlines. We can provide on-site supervision for the erection of the bridge and can undertake training courses.
Following an earthquake in Haiti and floods in Queensland, Australia, Unibridge® was successfully supplied and built at a number of sites within the disaster areas.
Unibridge® is versatile and extremely robust. It can be transported in ISO containers and on conventional trucks and trailers. The Unibridge® system has been designed for long fatigue life and therefore when it is deployed as an emergency bridge it is likely that the bridge can be left in place for numerous years as a permanent part of the rebuilt infrastructure.
