Pre-engineered solution “bridging” the gap on transport infrastructure projects

Here at Moddex, we are focused on providing peace of mind to project engineers through low-risk, top-quality barrier systems.

Working alongside project engineers on transport infrastructure in supplying handrail and balustrade across elevated structures & walkways, trackside and shared paths –an area of complexity around compliance became evident across bridge structures. 

We thrive on complexity – it helps us to surface the issues and apply our problem-solving and innovation skills to solve every potential barrier challenge. 

The challenge

The stringent requirements of AS 5100 and the NZTA Bridge Manual and their application to all aspects of a bridge – including the pedestrian and cyclist barriers is a real challenge (see AS5100.2 clause 12.5 and NZTA Bridge Manual Clause B6.4).

Why? The rigorous deflection and load requirements create a rigmarole of requests for information in order to put forward and approve a compliant solution.

True to the Moddex vision, “more value, in less time, every time”, we identified a need for a compliance guaranteed, repeatable, durable and cost-effective solution.

A solution that could meet the stringent requirements, reduce the need of requests for information and be competitive on price and ease of install.

The objective of which is to specify the minimum design loads and load effects for road, rail, pedestrian and cyclist path bridges, and other associated structures.

The Solution

In a market historically dominated by custom fabrication, Moddex is excited to offer pre-engineered solution for bridge barriers that protects project engineers from the risk of unnecessary and costly delays with handrail and balustrade compliance.

Introducing BridgerailTM Bridge Barriers– a revolutionary approach to transport infrastructure barrier systems. Suited to public access areas forming part of road, rail or other elevated bridge structures, the Moddex proprietary BridgerailTM systems ensure barriers can be specified and fitted effortlessly, with compliance guaranteed.

With a reputation for innovation and engineering excellence in modular handrail and balustrades we have applied the same thinking to bridge barriers to create a pre-fabricated kit-form system for ease of installation.

The modular assembly of the BridgerailTM product range requires no site welding or shut downs and is 30% faster than traditional systems.

Civil infrastructure is commonly designed for a lifetime of 100 years and the BridgerailTM Bridge Barrier range has been designed and built with this in mind.
