Pre-engineered Modular Military Pontoon Bailey Bridge Heavy Load Capacity
As one kind of Military Bailey Bridge, the Military pontoon bridges are usually built either by successively extending outward from the shore or by constructing whole sections as rafts and floating them into position. Truss bridges, for use where riverbanks are steep or navigation must be kept open, are made up in panels readily bolted together. Military truss bridges were pioneered in World War II by the highly successful British-invented Bailey bridge, which played an especially important role in the Allied campaign in Italy. Also during World War II, the scissors assault bridge was introduced; a folding bridge, consisting of a pair of solid-girder-supported deck sections, hinged at their juncture, was carried to the riverbank by a tank; opening out in an inverted V, it flattened into a level crossing.
Description of Military Steel Bailey Bridge
Prefabricated Steel Bailey Bridges are normally built on site from a pre-engineered system of ready-to-assemble components. Military bridge,
temporary bridge that must usually be constructed in haste by military engineers, from available materials, frequently under fire. The earliest
types historically were pontoon bridges—i.e., floating bridges that rest on stationary boats. Pontoon bridges were constructed in ancient times
by Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Mongols, the most famous being Xerxes’ 2-mile (3-kilometre) span over the Hellespont (Dardanelles). Th
Romans, however, frequently built more durable military bridges, notably Julius Caesar’s timber crossing of the Rhine River and Trajan’s timber-
arch span of the Danube.

Our Steel Bailey Bridges have been shipped and erected world-wide and are designed to suit a range of applications and come in a variety of
types dependent upon your specific bridge requirements. Our services include the complete complete bridge design and construction as per
Client's choice of bridge features, and the scope of various bridges are as follows:
· Road Bridges
· Pedestrian Bridges
· Railway Bridges
· Steel Truss Bridge
· Beam Bridges
· Steel Bailey bridge
· Structural Steel Box Bridge
Longer main spans are achievable than with any other type of bridge
Less material may be required than other bridge types, even at spans they can achieve, leading to a reduced construction cost
Except for installation of the initial temporary cables, little or no access from below is required during construction, for example allowing a waterway to remain open while the bridge is built above
May be better able to withstand earthquake movements than heavier and more rigid bridges
Bridge decks can have deck sections replaced in order to widen traffic lanes for larger vehicles or add additions width for separated cycling/pedestrian paths.
Our experienced team is focused on your steel bridge project's success, from start to finish. Our proven ability to identify and overcome design
inconsistencies, potential problems with erection, and shipping obstacles results in the fabrication of structural steel that is right the first time,
helping you avoid costly construction delays.
History of Bailey bridge
By the 17th century, bridging equipment was part of the train of European and Turkish armies, with pontoons fashioned not only of timber but
also of leather, copper, and tin. Pneumatic pontoons with steel roadways made their appearance during World War II.
Finally we would like to emphasize that not like other companies, nearly all machining parts and mechanical accessories are manufactured in our own shop as we have so many wonderful machines and workers inside. In this way, the quality, cost and delivery time can be ensured which eliminates other exterior factors’ influence.
