Pedestrian Bridge, Suspension Bridge, and Cable-Stayed Bridge Lightweight Structures
PFEIFER Structures designs, engineers, and installs cables, wire ropes, and other tension members as components of some of the most iconic pedestrian bridge, suspension bridge, and cable-stayed bridge structures in the world. A pedestrian bridge or footbridge is a lightweight structure that allows pedestrians to cross potentially dangerous areas such as highways, rivers, and ravines. Suspension bridges and cable-stayed bridges are long-span bridges capable of connecting roadways over large bodies of water such as rivers and bays.
Built in a fraction of the time and at around half the cost of conventional construction, our precision-crafted lightweight structures give architects, city planners, and developers a great alternative to traditional and heavy methods of bridge construction. There are shapes, forms, and surfaces we can create with lightweight architecture that cannot be replicated with any other method of construction.
Our structures can be used for a variety of pedestrian bridge, suspension bridge, and cable-stayed bridge applications such as cables for structural support, covered walkway canopies to provide protection from the elements for pedestrians, or to bring an architectural flair to any bridge.
The advanced membrane and cable materials we craft our structures from require minimal structural support, which allows us to create amazing, iconic tensile membrane structures previously unimagined. Cable bridge structures are low maintenance, very economical, quick to install, provide long service life, and are sustainable. Our tension members are also used as part of a structural system of large suspension or cable-stayed bridges offering superior material properties and exceptional performance.
