If your next bridge retrofit project includes pier jacketing, our Ductal® solution combines both performance and economy in the same package. When used as a cover around an existing pier or column Ductal® strengthens and protects the structure from a variety of environmental factors.
Depending on the situation and application, elements can be cast-in-place or precast and grouted to the existing structure. If faced with irregular shapes, complicated formwork or difficult access, you can even consider UHPC shotcrete.
Ductal® pier jacketing solutions also offer the added advantage of delivering exceptional high seismic deformation capacity using a thin jacket - ensuring your rehabilitated bridge will comply with today’s more rigorous seismic requirements.
