Faymonville offers 250 tonne girder bridge
By Alex Dahm01 March 2017
GirderMax is manufacturer Faymonville’s new girder bridge for transporting super heavy cargo within legal axle load limits on public roads. Transformers, gas turbines and generators are typical loads for this type of beam system.
The 250 tonne capacity bridge can be combined with all Faymonville modular platform trailers; the DualMax, ModulMax and CombiMax, the manufacturer said. Its length can be adapted to the load and the number of axle lines needed. To raise and lower it there is a 2 metre hydraulic lift and the widening system allows adjustment from 2.75 to 7.9 m.
To run in the USA the GirderMax is designed for 2 x 12 dual lane trailers in West Coast design but it can be shortened with fewer axle lines. It has cross-pendulum stabilisation and a self-tracking device for the steering system of the rear trailer, Faymonville said. Wireless remote control is another feature to help make it easier to use.
