Bridgeply – Give timber bridges a new lease of life
Bridgeply is a structural grade plywood manufactured to AS/NZS 2269-2008 from sustainable Australian plantation pine. It provides a reliable replacement where suitable lengths of solid hardwood timber are unavailable for bridge decking.
The ply is cross-laminated, with the grain at right angles in alternating layers, to evenly distribute longitudinal and lateral stiffness. The product is envelope treated (H3) to protect against termites, fungus and environmental degradation.
Bridgeply panels are available in widths of 1200mm, with a standard thickness of 170mm and in lengths to order. Panels can be produced in lengths over 10 metres.
