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 through the SPS Technology Partner Network.
SPS provides a cost-effective, strong, fast, durable, and safe alternative to reinforced concrete and stiffened steel, which can be used in the extension, strengthening and reinstatement of highway and pedestrian bridge deck construction. 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.
