At ArcelorMittal, we are proud to contribute to bridge construction, as we are able to satisfy the highly demanding technical and service requirements set by designers and contractors.
Among our innovative range of products and solutions, some are particularly bridge oriented and are ideal for short to very long-span projects:
- High Strength Steels, used to design and erect lighter structure, which is more resistant, more economical, and involves less environmental impacts.
- Enhanced weldable steels with very high toughness levels, in order to ensure robustness and long-life durability, whatever the local conditions may be.
- Weathering steels, requiring less maintenance along the complete life cycle.
- Sheet piles and reinforcement bars for foundations and piles.
- Prefabricated solutions, delivered on site for short and medium spans.
