Access Bridges at GFI Solutions

Is your team facing challenges overcoming difficult topography at a new job site? Dealing with costly delays because of sudden rain or snowmelt that’s left part of your site with a massive gap that can’t be crossed? From creeks to ditches, rivers, sink ponds, and everything in between, temporary access bridges provide a safe way to navigate from point A to B, allow your operation to stay on time and on budget. As Canada’s exclusive source for Sterling Solutions’ line of TerraCross™ products, we’re proud to offer site-safe access solutions that help you conquer the landscape with ease. Read on to learn more about the benefits of access bridges, including TerraCross™ below.

Bridging the Gap

It’s no secret that Canada’s terrain can make it difficult to get where you need to go on remote job sites; having safe transport solutions not only grants peace of mind but also ensure your project is in compliance with environmental standards and efficiency. While access mats are fantastic for creating makeshift roads, access bridges are able to step in when a flat option simply isn’t enough. Gaps like ditches, sinkholes, creeks and uneven foundations require the additional support offered by bridges, which are often used in tandem with access mats. When deciding what access bridge is best suited to your needs, considering the following:

  • How long will you need to use it?
  • What do you need the load capacity to be?
  • Are there any specific geographical features you need to accommodate? (Ditches, significant slopes, etc)

While both portable and permanent options are available, portable access bridges are generally sufficient for most applications and serve as a cost-effective solution that can then be removed with minimal effects on the landscape overall. This makes them ideal for project managers that may only require brief access to certain areas, and who prefer a versatile asset that can be used in multiple locations.
