- Designed to incorporate the weight of vehicle, speed of impact & angle of impact.
- Can be made to tie into original bridge design.
- Versatile cost effective solution.
- Quick and accurate production.
- Bridge Parapet units can be supplied with projecting steel as required.
- Lifting points incorporated to required specification.
