Aluminium grilles hold all the aces for bridge decks!

neaco’s Techdek aluminium grilles have become a popular choice for bridge applications, having been specified as decking for pedestrian or cycle ways at some of the UK’s most prestigious bridge schemes.

 

Techdek’s T-Bar profile provides a 74 per cent contact area on the surface yet drains water efficiently and its swage-locked construction between the bars enables high structural efficiency. Those qualities – combined with a maintenance-free durability and the option of a serrated anti-slip surface for increased safety – make Techdek aluminium grilles ideal for the external conditions and high traffic demands of a bridge.

 

neaco’s Managing Director, Alan Green, comments: “Bridge developments have become a major market for our Techdek aluminium grilles and we are proud to have the product featured on some of the UK’s most high-profile bridge projects in recent years. In addition to its many practical qualities, Techdek provides a high architectural aesthetic that is manufactured to last. The aluminium grilles are extremely versatile and can be used in many other applications, including staging, modesty screens, solar shading, balustrade infills, maintenance galleries and roof access walkways.”

 

Techdek’s modular aluminium components are precision manufactured off site and easy to assemble with no welding required. neaco’s diverse product range also includes modular handrail and balustrade systems, Juliet balconies, step-out balconies, structural glass and inclusive bathing facilities. All products are backed by a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee.
