SPS: built for 100+ Year Design Life
SPS Technology is one of the world’s leading providers of structural composite bridge solutions, having delivered diverse and innovative projects internationally.
SPS provides a cost-effective, strong, fast, durable, and safe alternative to reinforced concrete and stiffened steel, which can be used in the construction, extension, strengthening and reinstatement of highway and pedestrian bridge decks. The SPS solution delivers a high strength-to-weight ratio, increasing live-load capacity, despite it being 70% lighter than concrete.
Architecturally versatile, SPS is adaptable to multiple configurations – cambered girders, constant cross-section and vertical or horizontal curves. SPS can also be skewed up to 45degrees. A variety of material options and wearing surfaces increase SPS’s versatility. With an essentially infinite fatigue life, SPS panels are designed for 100+ year design life, can also be recommissioned and provide substantial sustainability advantages over concrete decks.
