The standard truss designs we offer are efficient designs in regards to both loading capabilities and cost. Almost all of our projects start with one of our standard trusses as a base and customize the railing, decking, and aesthetic features. However, we also love working with clients to design and fabricate custom truss bridges. If you have a design you would like to see fabricated our project managers and design engineers will create plans that meet your individual bridge specifications. As with all of our bridges, we will provide a complete drawings and analysis package stamped by a professional engineer.
Bridges are not the only structures we build. Once clients have worked with us on a bridge project, they understand that we can fabricate any aluminum structure. From boat hulls, to church steeples, to floating helicopter pads, GatorBridge can fabricate any custom aluminum structure.
Aluminum temporary bridges are cost efficient solutions for temporary project needs. From initial structure cost to transportation and installation, aluminum bridges provide cost savings for temporary bridge projects. Once the project is complete and the bridge is no longer needed, the structure retains a high resale or recycling value.
Government organizations, large construction firms, and departments of transportation are often in need of temporary bridges. Instead of ordering a custom size temporary bridge for each project need, these entities often choose to order modular bridges. The modular bridge can then be configured into different length bridges for each project need.
Boardwalks, platforms, catwalks, gangways, and overlooks are all structures that GatorBridge fabricates. Many times these structures feature elements of our standard truss designs, or the DRI design of GatorDock’s gangways.
For over 40 years we have been fabricating exactly what our clients needed. And although the majority of the aluminum structures we make are docks and bridges, it didn’t always use to be that way. Aluminum is one of the most versatile structure materials for fabrication. Its properties offer value that exceeds other traditional materials like steel and wood. If you need aluminum structure fabricated of any kind, contact us.
