Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Apr 02, 2019 - AlumaBridge Aluminum Decking isn’t just for vehicular bridges. It’s the perfect replacement for deteriorating factory floors and new industrial applications that require very high load capacities. AlumaBridge Factory Floor Panels are lightweight, prefabricated, and modular for easy installation. Corrosion resistant aluminum reduces maintenance and is 100 percent recyclable. Skid-resistant coatings are also available.
“We recognized the attributes of AlumaBridge decking also deliver an excellent flooring solution for factories, warehouses and other industrial applications,” says Greg Osberg, AlumaBridge President & CEO, “while providing a safe, sustainable and economical alternative to steel, concrete and wood.”
Recently, AlumaBridge supplied panels to a large manufacturer that needed an elevated floor capable of supporting forklifts with each tire exerting a load of 35 kips. The existing floor was positioned above a number of levels consisting of mezzanines, walkways and mechanicals that support manufacturing. Welded steel plates served as the riding surface for forklift traffic. Forklift loads caused some welded plates to crack and buckle, requiring repair of the floor surface as well as repair to damaged forklift tires and undercarriages. AlumaBridge Factory Flooring panels can solve these types of problems with a minimum of downtime and loss of productivity. Moving forward, the AlumaBridge solution provides a smooth safe riding surface that will not crack or buckle, thus reducing future maintenance.
AlumaBridge has also supplied prefabricated panels for a nuclear power plant application where load capacity is also key. In this case, large panel assemblies must be periodically removed to perform maintenance on critical systems below. To improve this process, replacement of heavier decking with lightweight AlumaBridge decking will make handling more efficient, thereby reducing downtime and improving productivity for every future cycle of maintenance.
