Concrete Bridge Beams

Pre-stressed Concrete Bridge Beams

Structural concrete is well known for its strength, durability and versatility. The use of pre-stressing enables concrete bridge beams to span long distances.

Shay Murtagh Precast not only manufactures high quality pre-stressed beams but is a valuable resource at all facets of ensuring a fast and efficient build.

Precast Concrete Beams are ideal for:

  • Road Bridges
  • Rail Bridges
  • Foot Bridges
  • Any application incorporating long spans.

Precast Concrete Bridge Beams

Bridge beams can be used in beam-and-slab, solid slab and voided slab deck types and are suitable for simply supported, continuous and integral spans. Shay Murtagh precast pre-stressed concrete beams greatly reduce and simplify in-situ concrete construction whilst simultaneously ensuring a high quality, robust structural core.

Bridge Beam Manufacturing

Shay Murtagh Precast pre-stressed concrete beams are manufactured in a dedicated facility ensuring factory quality with engineered tolerances by personnel that have up to 40 years of experience in pre-stressed concrete operations.
