We construct our walk bridge sides in one continuous section. We do not glue pieces together to make up to thickness, length or height. The curved shape is cut from solid 9” x 2” (225mm x 50mm) Redwood from Sweden. The bridge can be made to any length from 2.1m upwards, in sizes suggested – or to customer preference. When measuring the required length, make sure that you give yourself at least 6 – 8 inches (150mm – 200mm) overhang on each bank. If your banks are very soft or marshy then please speak to us to see what we can suggest to help support the bridge on either end.
The 2.1m to 2.4m versions have four posts on each side whereas the 2.7m to 3.6m versions have five. This is to take account of the longer spans. The posts are cut to form a pleasing shape and are bolted to the bridge sides. Designs and styles can be tweaked to suit the customer’s preference. This particular bridge has crossbars in between the posts adding not only an attractive feature but also additional safety for small children.
