Pre-Stressed Concrete Bridge Beams
Structural concrete is well known for its strength, durability and versatility. These properties are enhanced for structural elements manufactured as prestressed concrete. Pre-stressed concrete bridge beams have become firmly established as the preferred option for a wide range of bridge spans and types. Developments in structural design, material strength and manufacturing have enabled pre-stressed concrete bridge beams to be used in significantly greater spans.
Shay Murtagh Precast not only manufactures high quality pre-stressed bridge beams but our experienced and agile design, manufacturing and transportation teams are able to serve as a valuable resource at all facets of planning, design, manufacturing and construction.
Precast Concrete Beams are ideal for
- Road Bridges
- Rail Bridges
- Foot Bridges
- Any building, infrastructure or highway 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.
Bridge Beam Experts
Shay Murtagh Precast sales personnel, technical experts and design engineers have extensive experience in a wide variety of precast pre-stressed concrete beam applications and can provide assistance at any point from identifying the optimal structural arrangement, beam type and details to preliminary design and detailed design.
Bridge Beam Technical Manual
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a new way of approaching the design and documentation of building projects. It is the process of designing a project collaboratively using one computer model rather than separate sets of drawings.
This up to the minute design tool will be a staple to every engineer’s reference library.
