Steel + Aluminium Combinations

While steel profile’s load carrying capacity is higher than aluminium’s, aluminium has lower own mass, which makes it easier to move than steel. The strengths of both materials can be achieved by combining the two in to a single system.

Adding steel tracks to an aluminium bridge enables longer suspension distances while still having the lightness of aluminium. Adding a steel bridge to aluminium tracks enables a much wider bridge span than aluminium can.

Profile type Max. Bridge Span Max. Suspension Distance
