future solar panels.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the difference between theÂ NEXT D andÂ NEXT FÂ Bridge Beam?
A. The D Beam (Deck Beam) is a beam with a full-depth flange, on which a membrane and wearing surface can be field-applied,
enabling it to be ready for traffic almost immediately after the bridge is erected.
The F Beam (Flange Beam) is a beam with a partial-depth flange which serves as the formwork for a conventional cast-in-place
reinforced concrete deck. This results in a monolithic deck surface at the expense of a few extra days of site construction.
The top flange of the F Beam eliminates the need for deck forming (including the overhang), which is a tremendous
