Foamed Concrete for Bridges & Roads
The use of foamed concrete is becoming increasingly popular with designers and engineers to satisfy new European road haulage legislation. A typical example would be the use of Foamed concrete to infill voids in bridge piers as well as the construction of lightweight decks and abutment construction.
Its free-flowing lightweight properties reduces the load on the foundations whilst increasing the strength of the structure making it ideal in the use of bridge strengthening
Foamed concrete, when used as trench infill, will encapsulate pipes and services to guarantee a permanent first-time reinstatement and is recommended in the Road and Streetworks Act.
