Ultra-Cor® Bridge

Ultra-Cor® Structural Steel Plate is taking engineered buried arch bridges to new dimensions in capability and performance. With an impressive 500 mm pitch and 237 mm depth, Ultra-Cor’s ultra-deep corrugations allow it to reach buried arch bridge spans of over 35 m and withstand the heaviest of loads.

Ultra-Cor’s galvanised steel plate combines all the advantages of lightweight construction with previously unheard-of strength and durability to create the largest buried arch bridges, tunnels, box culverts and many other types of structures. Like all engineered arch bridge solutions, Ultra-Cor® ships and installs easily.

Recommended for large bridges, tunnels, grade separations, road or rail overpasses, stream crossings, heavy haul road crossings, stockpile tunnels, portals and canopies.

Note: CSP’s Ultra- Cor® is not a stocked item. A lead time for manufacture can be provided following the design and consultation process.
