Pedestrian Bridges

Wagners CFT have supplied girder bridges all across Australia from the sweltering tropics to the burning deserts. Our composite structures are uniquely suited to withstand the harshest environments while providing a low maintenance, long life asset to the local community. Wagners materials are perfect for costal, marine, and environmentally sensitive areas. From tidal flood plains and protected mangrove swamps to alkaline desert and corrosive mining facilities, Wagners structures have proven time and again their unique durability and strength. Possessing a full in-house design and certification team, Wagners will work hand in hand with your staff to insure a robust, aesthetically pleasing pedestrian asset that will provide decades of service.

Benefits:

  • Low maintenance
  • Long life span
  • Will not rust, rot or corrode
  • Termite proof
  • Light weight
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Prefabrication and scheduled works delivery
  • Inert, environmentally stable material
  • Far more environmentally friendly than traditional materials

Wagners have developed design methodologies for composite footbridges from the following standards:

  • AS1657 - Design for access and mobillity
  • AS5100 - Bridge Design
  • AS2156 - Walking tracks, infrastructure design
  • AS1170 - Structural design actions
  • Structural design of Polymer Composites - Eurocomp design code and handbook design of composite structures differs slightly from that of traditional materials, in that the 'serviceability' criteria generally dominates the design process. Typically traditional materials are designed primarily for strength, and serviceability checks are performed. Due to the low Modulus of Elasticity of composite products (as compared to steel for example) structures are designed to meet the stiffness criteria, and as a result contain large strength reserves.

Our Experience

Wagners CFT has over 10 years of experience in, not only supplying composite fibre structures but we make our own product right here in Australia using second to none quality materials. If you don't believe us, see the projects we have done & read the comments of our customers.
