Filler Beam Bridges

Easy and quick construction, as well as high load bearing capacity, make filler beam decks an efficient solution for road and railway bridges.

A filler beam deck consists of a concrete slab with stiff longitudinal reinforcement made of rolled beams and transverse reinforcement of steel bars. The closely spaced steel beams and concrete act compositely, not requiring a specific mechanical shear connection.

Although originally developed only for railway bridges, filler beam decks have also been widely and effectively used for road bridges over the last few decades. They offer a robust, simple and durable construction with high load bearing capacity.
