HAKI Bridge System (HBS)
The HAKI Bridge System (HBS) reduces possession times for installation of temporary bridges and provides safe temporary railway, road or river crossings for pedestrians while infrastructure projects are ongoing.
Like the Public access Stair, the HBS can handle the loading of up to 7.5kN/m2 and has been designed to conform to leading British and European standards.
Incorporating the use of the HAKI Universal system, the HBS uses standard components.
The HAKI Cladding System can also be used to enclose the bridge to offer further safety benefits, including the risk of falling objects and falls from height.
The HBS can be erected in three ways, depending on your project specification or environmental conditions:
- On a temporary scaffold at ground level, then lifted into place with a crane
- On a temporary birdcage scaffold at the finished level
- By a progressive ‘roll-out’ method – without the need for a crane and unaffected by weather conditions
The HBS can also act as a spine beam to support other structures such as scaffolds or temporary roofs.
