FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
is the general use of your bridge, and how does that affect the bridge choice?
Pedestrian traffic requires
a much smaller effort and will cost you far less. Light car traffic (such
as a private road) can often be misleading. If you are building a home,
your bridge will need to withstand the weight of a cement truck or other
construction class vehicles. The Daniel Bridge is designed to accommodate
this need with a weight rating exceeding 80,000 pounds. A fully loaded
fire engine, or cement mixer, is cleared to use our bridge.
long will a Daniel Bridge Last?
Our bridge is warranteed
for 1 year. If the paint is renewed every 5 years, you can expect this
bridge to last over 100 years.
What is involved in getting a bridge engineered and permitted?
If you are installing a bridge in California, our
bridge comes pre-engineered and will be a snap to permit. Outside of California,
it is required that a state professional engineer review the plans and
give a signoff. Based on past experience, this process will be short and
I need to move the bridge, what is involved?
Based on the modular design approach we have patented,
moving the bridge is simple and quick. Unbolting the parts can take less
than a day. Loading and unloading will be your biggest job. Piling or
poured concrete abutments will have to be left behind (or demolished)
but a modular block abutment can also be moved with the bridge. Once again,
loading and unloading requires some heavy equipment.
How soon can I get a bridge installed?
There is a bridge installation season, based on
weather and restrictions imposed by Fish and Game. We can install a bridge
with a 3 week notice (based on current schedule) anywhere from June 15th
through first Rains of the following season (often as late as December).
