Enhancing Bridge Safety with Advanced Travelers for Maintenance and Repair

Regular maintenance and repair are crucial for ensuring the safety and functionality of bridges. American Crane & Equipment Corporation (ACECO) specializes in providing innovative lifting solutions tailored to streamline bridge maintenance and repair operations. Our expertise lies in the development and deployment of advanced travelers designed specifically for bridge maintenance.

Maintenance and Repair Travelers

Our maintenance and repair travelers are movable platforms engineered to enable easy access to the undersides of bridge structures for inspection and maintenance tasks. Unlike traditional scaffolds, these travelers allow technicians to reach critical areas without disrupting traffic flow.

To ensure optimal performance and user safety, our bridge maintenance and repair travelers are equipped with essential features including:

  • Anti-skewing technology: Facilitates operation on uneven or misaligned runways, ensuring stability and precise movement.
  • Fully enclosed work platforms: Provide a safe environment by preventing personnel from falling while working on the platforms.
  • Slip-resistant platform surfaces: Minimizes the risk of accidents caused by slipping and falling during maintenance activities.
  • Convenient on-board personnel access lifts: Enhances accessibility for technicians, enabling them to reach their work areas efficiently.
  • Portable operator controls: User-friendly controls that are easy to operate and maneuver.
  • Redundant drop capture systems: Prevents accidental separation of the traveler from the bridge,

Key Features of ACECO’s Bridge Maintenance and Repair Travelers

Our bridge maintenance and repair travelers are available in various configurations, including self-propelled gas, diesel, or electric options. While each traveler is customized to meet specific requirements, they share several features, such as:

  • Durable construction: Stainless, galvanized, or plated steel construction on non-painted surfaces ensures longevity and corrosion resistance.
  • Weather-resistant design: Specially designed for heavy-duty performance with corrosion-resistant coatings to withstand challenging environmental conditions.
  • On-board personnel lifts: Facilitate easy access for technicians to their designated work areas.
  • Optional features: Customizable options include personnel seating, telescopic extensions, Coast Guard-approved navigation lights, diagnostic equipment, backup motors, escape devices, emergency stop buttons, and warning devices.
