The 700XS® Acrow® Panel Bridging system is a perfect solution for permanent and temporary bridge needs, whether the Acrow Bridge is used on a major highway application in New York City or on a sparsely traveled feeder road located on the African continent.
Temporary Bridges Acrow 700XS
The 700XS® utilizes the same modular principles that have made the earlier Acrow Panel Bridges such outstanding and time-tested successes. The 700XS® is pre-engineered and pre-fabricated. Since the 700XS® is modular it is easily transported with standard dry ocean containers or highway trucks. These bridges are quickly and easily erected using unskilled labor. The entire bridge pins and bolts together. Acrow Bridges can be assembled by hand or using material handling equipment. The 700XS® can be rolled in full cantilever (launched) from one side of a river gorge or they can be lifted into place. The 700XS® Bridges are available in three lane, two lane or single lane widths. Also, special widths of bridge can be supplied to fulfill specific requirements. Sidewalks may be cantilevered from one or both sides of any bridge.
One can make a longer bridge, a stronger bridge, or a wider bridge simply by using more pieces. The 700XS® Acrow Panel Bridging system is the third generation of improvements beyond the original, world-renowned Bailey Bridge. Briefly, the design of the new 700XS® System has produced a lighter bridge with a truss which is 50% deeper and, as a result, 50% stronger in bending and 20% stronger in shear.
Orthotropic steel plate deck units are designed to handle very heavy wheel loads. The plate deck surface readily accepts surface overlays, such as bituminous asphalt or an anti-skid surface that provides motorist with a higher level of safety and is comprised of a factory applied aggregate and epoxy mixture. Thus, the 700XS® bridge results in a stronger bridge, capable of longer spans using fewer parts. Therefore, Acrow Panel 700XS® Bridges can be erected faster and are less labor intensive.
Acrow Bridges are hot dipped galvanized and therefore protected from environmental deterioration. All Acrow Bridges are galvanized in accordance with the ASTM A123 specification. Owners will experience 50 to 100 years of service without performing refinishing maintenance in most environments.
Acrow Panel Bridges are:
- fully inspected and load tested
