Aluminum

The better material choice

Aluminum’s inherent properties make it light, strong, architecturally pleasing, durable, and fully reusable and recyclable.  The innovative extruded aluminum Make-A-Bridge® system offers versatile design options.  Aluminum alloys may be extruded into infinite shapes, including complex hollow and custom designs.  Aluminum’s tensile strength and structural stiffness combine with light weight, corrosion resistance and easy fabrication to make aluminum the ideal pedestrian bridge building material. 

 

Load-bearing, structurally stiff aluminum components resist deformation caused by live loads, climate or movement.  Aluminum has a high strength-to-weight ratio, and is one of the strongest construction materials available, yet is two-thirds lighter than steel.  Aluminum does not degrade over time and will not rust, warp or become brittle under extreme temperature and humidity conditions.
