Bridges

Noise protection and falling protection on bridges can be both highly functional and decorative at the same time. Hammerglass AB provides glazing and fixing solutions for all imaginable bridge solutions for roads and railways, as well pedestrian and cycle bridges. Given the wide choice of fixing methods available for the installation of Hammerglass panels, a bridge can be much more than simply a transit route. The use of nanotechnology helps to prevent pollutants from exhaust fumes, oil and asphalt from adhering to Hammerglass as easily as they do to ordinary glass. The estimated service life of Hammerglass is more than 40 years.

Colour and light

Colour and LED-illumination create an appealing eyecatcher. The Hammerglass panels can be screen-printed or printed digitally, providing limitless scope for customised design. The panels may be provided with municipal coats of arms or patterns which are repeated at regular intervals. With larger series of panels there is the possibility of producing colour-impregnated Hammerglass. A printed or colour-impregnated Hammerglass panel with LED-illumination forms an attractive focal point of light in the night darkness.

Flexible solutions

RAILWAY BRIDGE

Hammerglass System Bridge-2 is a complete system for mounting onto bridge posts along roads or railways. Hot-dip galvanised posts for side mounting onto bridge posts or bolting to the bridge edge girder. The Hammerglass panels are mounted on the outside of the posts with an external support plate and robust clamping profile and through bolt fixing. All barriers are provided with earth rails and each stage is earthed separately. A 45° bend in the top of the Hammerglass panels reinforces the structure and at the same time contributes to an effective reduction in low-frequency noise from trains.

ROAD BRIDGE

Hammerglass System Bridge-2 is a complete system for mounting onto bridge posts along roads or railways. Hot-dip galvanised posts for side mounting onto the bridge posts. The Hammerglass panels are mounted on the outside of the posts with an external support plate and robust clamping profile and through bolt fixing. The panels are also secured with wire at the top. Installation is carried out from inside the bridge. Installation can also be carried out using existing fixing systems or post systems suited to the project.

PEDESTRIAN & CYCLE BRIDGE

Flexible solutions for pedestrian and cycle bridges. Mounting onto existing structure or using a fixing system suited to the pedestrian and cycle bridge project.  The Hammerglass panels are milled individually after the supporting structure is in place. The panels can be supplied as clear, opal, coloured or printed, and provided with LED lighting.

Design and installation

The Hammerglass panels are flexible and can be shaped to fit into bent profiles. The screen may be inclined at any desired angle, based on individual requirements relating to noise reflection, light reflection and snow accumulation. Water run-off may occur in towards the bridge or down below the barrier. Bring us into your discussions at the idea stage. Our designers will prepare drawings and offer suggestions for functional solutions. We will be happy to provide tenders for complete projects: Made-to-measure Hammerglass, posts, fixing systems and installation.
