Bridge renovation with a composite deck
Wooden, steel and concrete bridge decks require high maintenance and must be replaced at the end of their service life. With a composite bridge deck, these obstacles are a thing of the past.
Our precast composite decks are ideally suited for the renovation of bridge decks. They are virtually maintenance-free and impervious to external influences.
Minimal disruption and inconvenience
We are replacing the old bridge deck with a composite bridge deck with InfraCore® Inside with minimal disruption and inconvenience to the surrounding area. The bridge is quickly usable again and will last up to 100 years. Thanks to the prefabricated construction, the bridge deck is quick to install and the bridge is thus quickly usable again.
Highly durable solution
Demolishing a bridge is never a sustainable solution. Give your bridge a second life with a widening or upgrade with our composite solutions. Fewer transport movements are required to install the bridge, which has a beneficial impact on CO2 emissions.
Composite traffic decks
Spans > 1 to 3 meters between beams
Length > to 25 meters
Width > linkable, usually 3m and max 10m per section
Design requirements > according to Eurocodes/CUR96
Traffic class > LM1 + LM2, LM3 optional
Less maintenance on steel structure
Thanks to its low deadweight, the new bridge deck is lighter than the old wooden or steel deck. As a result, the underlying structure does not have to be modified or weighted, which is the case with concrete, for example.
After installing a composite bridge deck, the underlying steel structure is less likely to be affected by oil, rainwater and de-icing salts. Because unlike wooden planks, the composite deck does not allow liquids to pass through. This saves maintenance on the steel structure (in the long run).

- Lifespan of > 100 years
- Light weight
- Weather resistant
- Less stress on underlying structure
- Prefabricated delivered to site
- Quick and easy to (re)install
- Designed according to Eurocode / CUR96
- Lowcarbon footprint

Renovation of bridges made of concrete | SUREbridge
SUREbridge prevents demolition and rebuilding of concrete bridges. While preserving the structure, we can technically upgrade the bridge. We do this in a short time, with minimal traffic and noise disruption. The existing structure is preserved and even reinforced. The result: a renewed structure that requires little or no maintenance. The lifespan is extended considerably; up to 100 years. Read more about this sustainable solution.
