Formex® Footbridges

HIGH DURABILITY, MINIMUM MAINTENANCE

Our footbridges have a highly versatile design adaptable due to the standardization of their section while maintaining competitive prices with extra durability compared to alternative solutions in steel or conventional concrete.

Suitable for different footbridges spans using the same molds. Taking advantage of Formex®’s excellent and durable qualities, a standardized process has been developed for carrying out construction projects and turnkey construction of prefabricated footbridges with spans of up to 40 m. and a useful width of 3 m.

Formex® Howe Footbridge

Spans until 40 meters

The Formex® Howe standardized footbridge stands out due to its exclusivity, considering that very few of similar structures in the world are built with Ultra-High-Performance Concrete.

The footbridge is composed of a constant-depth deck lightened by two lateral lattices and a deck made from slabs sustained in struts in a Virendel arrangement.

In addition, the Formex® Howe footbridge has a lightness typical of steel structures, with an average weight of approximately 1.5 Ton / m for the ranges of spans provided. This implies, in addition to a more slender structure, considerable savings in the transport, assembly and design of foundations.
