CTS are specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of bridges, footbridges, boardwalks, lock gates and decking in steel or timber.
The use of sustainably grown and locally produced timber for bridge, foundation and sea defence . double again in the next 10 years but pulp, paper and board markets are so saturated that new markets need to be Timber and concrete composite decks have existed in regions such as New Zealand and North America
In the 60 to 110 m span range, prestressed concrete bridges built by successive deck segment cantilevering are also almost invariably more expensive than composite structures, except when the composite bridge steelwork is difficult to install (a tunnel very near the projected launching area, a complex road network, need.
In this paper, a new cost-effective composite bridge deck consisting of multiple steel box cells, concrete slab, and glass fiber-reinforced polymer layer is inv

The Terrafina Ultra composite deck board is a wider version of the Innova and Excel boards with a tactile ribbed finsh. The Streetdeck 40 from the Streetlife Bridges & Decking Collection is a sustainable bridge decking material made of composite wood, comprising 75% shredded local residual wood and 25% synthetic

October 10% of all bridge decks in USA are timber. Iowa has 11% of the Using 2-inch nominal thick boards 4, 6, or 8-inch wide provides varying
Capped composite decks have a high performance finish with the addition of the shell that is often called a “cap-stock.” This shell covers either all four sides of the composite board or just the top and sides, depending on the brand. Manufacturers apply the cap to the board using a process called co-extrusion. Most capped
An innovative steel and concrete composite bridge deck slab using bent bars and epoxy as shear connectors was proposed. Four slab specimens with different types of concrete were fabricated and tested to study the load capacities of positive and negative moment regions of the slabs. The cracking and
Decks are prefabricated and craned onto bearings as a single unit leading to considerable savings in installation time. Principal advantages of this construction method are improved durability and lightness and FRP offers particular advantages for moving bridges. FRP bridge solutions are available to match spans and

the durability and low maintenance costs of such profiles. The unique supporting structures consist of pultruded, glass fiber reinforced polyester profiles and the girders are in composite. For the bridge surface, composite bridge deck boards are used. These must be provided with a trafficable wear layer.
