Temporary Bridge Solutions at GFI Solutions

Looking for an affordable and robust bridge to ease access for your workers and machinery? GFI Solutions’ TerraCross Bridge is a reliable temporary bridging system that is lightweight, strong, and within your budget. One might wonder whether temporary bridges perform as well as permanent bridges and if they are worth the purchase. Read on to find out!

Quick Installation

Portable bridges are an excellent option for short-term projects as they can be quickly shipped and installed. As the exclusive supplier of Sterling Solutions matting products, GFI Solutions supplies customers with temporary TerraCross bridges that can be installed in as little as two hours to less than a day, depending on the site access, soil conditions, geography etc. The temporary bridges can also be easily installed with standard equipment used to build temporary access roads; however, to properly install the TerraCross bridging system, we recommend that our team of experts carry out the installation. In order to ensure optimum safety, sites are reviewed and/or inspected by trained GFI personnel before installing the TerraCross bridging system.


Worksites with heavy-duty equipment can install the TerraCross 40 as it withstands up to 100 tons of weight. The TerraCross 50 would be a better option for lighter projects as it can handle up to 65 tons of weight.

Engineered with a structural steel design, TerraCross portable bridges are built to provide you with the necessary safety and support you need to maintain a safe and secure worksite. All TerraCross bridges are built using TerraLam 700 CLT mats made from Southern Yellow Pine wood, unlike traditional bolted mats made from Douglas Fir. Even though CLT mats are 40% lighter than conventional mats, they are 30% stronger.

OSHA – Compliant

GFI’s TerraCross bridges are not only safe for machinery and transportation, but they are also safe for your workers as they are OSHA compliant. To allow for safer crossing, solid handrails are pinned to the bridge giving your crew the safety they need to pass over uneven terrain, eliminating worksite injuries and risks.

Geotextile Compliant

Minimizing the risk of contamination is a crucial factor that project owners look for when installing a movable bridge. The TerraCross bridge is often used to create a safe path for vehicles and workers to cross waterways, which is why a geotextile surface is installed with GFI’s temporary bridge to help keep debris from leaving the bridge and accidentally contaminating waterways.
