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.
The timber is finished in a decorative singe burnt effect which highlights the grain in the timber. All our walk bridges are priced without tanalising (pressure treatment). There are two colours: Green or Brown. The charges range between £35.00 to £55.00 dependent on length. These are the treatment costs to us. We do not add anything to this!
Tantalising is essential for bridges to provide a safe product over a long lifespan. Up to 10 years without the worry from rot and when you think about it! In the long run, you will be glad you do not have to spend long laborious hours each year maintaining the timber. Just let us know your colour preference! (when you tick the treatment colour option, your order will be default to the standard treatment charge of £35.00 which covers most of the lengths on the site. If this is different we will contact you to let you know before we start your bridge.
Please note that the width of the bridges is only the deck width. It does not include the width of the posts. The actual width will be a further 150mm (6”).
We do not use couriers to deliver our products as we believe in a total service from construction to meeting our customers face to face. There is a delivery charge of £18.50 per total order whether your order is 1 or 100 items (applies to UK mainland only – certain areas will incur an additional fee). This payment includes assembly and a final silicone treatment after your product is completed, for additional protection against the elements.
Please note the optional tantalizing process may delay your expected delivery date.
