What are Footbridges?
The term footbridge (also called a pedestrian bridge, pedestrian overpass, walk bridge, or pedestrian overcrossing) describes a bridge limited to pedestrians and in some cases, cyclists and animal traffic. Walk bridges exclude vehicular traffic.
While constructed in similar fashion to a vehicular bridge, walk bridge flooring differs, often using cement, timber, or grating.
Walk Bridge Materials: Why Choose Stainless Steel Walkway Grating?
While grating has previously been considered a medium for industrial applications, thanks to HEELGUARD technology, stainless steel grating now has a place in the broader market.
Unlike many other types of walkway mesh grating, our stainless steel walkway gratings are perfect for public walk bridges as heels and paws do not get stuck in it. Our walkway gratings also comply with AUST std for both load ratings and slip resistant values.
Our pedestrian bridge grating offers a number of advantages to walk bridge designs and construction.
Firstly, it comes in prefabricated bridge flooring sections, and has great strength to weight ratio.
This equates to a simple build and strong finished product.
In terms of ongoing concerns, our steel walkway grating, is fabricated out of stainless steel which, unlike it’s galvanized cousin, does not pit or wear off after continual use , therefore has a longer lifespan and requires less maintenance.
As we’ve noted above, steel bridge deck gratings are friendly on heels, additionally they offer a non slip walk surface.
