NiuBridge & NiuDeck products are designed in accordance with the Austroads Bridge Design Code and the Australian Standard AS5100 Bridge Design. The AS5100 standard provides design loads for projected increases in legal loads to make sure that the bridges we are building now can carry road and rail traffic well into the future. NiuBridge products incorporate key advances in both processing and preservation treatment into the design which underpin the product’s warranty.
As part of our commitment to quality, NiuBridge system testing and certification is undertaken by University of Technology Sydney which includes full scale destructive testing.
The tests results confirm that the both NiuBridge Modules and NiuDeck meet and exceed the ULS requirements of both T44 and S1600 loading conditions.
