Bridge Overhang Brackets
With the same load capacity at half the weight of steel, the HI-LITE Bridge Overhang Bracket System reduces installation time – every time.
- Can be spaced twice as far apart compared to equivalent steel brackets.
- Requires significantly less labor for installation and stripping.
- The Adjustment Rod can be easily and safely turned from above without going underneath.
- The aluminum resting bars are far less likely to damage the bridge girders.
- A Top Chord Extension can be used to lengthen the upper portion of the bracket.
Compared to conventional steel brackets, spacing is greatly improved with aluminum components. In fact they can be spaced twice as far apart – up to 10 feet – with a resulting weight half that of conventional steel brackets. The use of a screed machine necessitates only a slightly reduced spacing.
An adjustment rod controls the diagonal strut from above. The bridge bracket can be leveled quickly without going underneath. The safety rail, either lumber or tube-and-clamp, attaches to the Guard Rail Post Holder, which can be adjusted to accommodate sloping decks.
Assembly is fast and easy. The adjustment rod is removed easily and the diagonal strut folds against the rest of the bracket. That way the entire bracket takes up very little space during shipping. The aluminum material is also far less likely to damage the bridge girders.
The components of the bracket are modular, meaning that the parts are all standard but are highly adjustable. Different overhangs and different bridge shapes present no difficulty, which saves labor and materials.
The upper top chord and the diagonal strut are manufactured with a T-bolt slot all along their length. Because of this the rest of the parts can be attached and stripped easily or the bracket can be flown into position by crane.
A Top Chord Extension can be used to lengthen the upper portion of the bracket.
The HI-LITE bridge overhang bracket installs and strips quickly, adjusts to most conditions, and has a superior load-bearing capacity. The contractor saves on both materials and labor, and the project is not slowed down by unexpected or challenging conditions. Better. Faster. Cheaper.
