FerroStrada (UK) Limited is a fully compliant commercial construction product engineering company bringing to the construction and building industries innovative engineering solutions from the design, development, supply and install of prefabricated concrete structures, patent protected hydraulic box jacking to advanced product manufacturing in steel including crash tested vehicle restraint systems and environmental noise barriers.
Our prefabricated concrete capabilities, using in-house produced moulds, include an endless variety of bridge structures, viaducts, high speed rail bridges and viaducts, Bascule bridges, nuclear power plants, pressure vessels and reinforced concrete underpasses.
The installation of bridges is undertaken using in-house specialist machinery such as launching girders, Incremental launching systems, form travellers, advance shoring, heavy lifting and specialist heavy transport.
Our oleo-dynamics division have the capacity to rely on patent protected technologies for the hydraulic box jacking of reinforced concrete structures beneath live railway lines and roads without shutting down traffic. Adopting a purposely designed rail support system, commuter traffic is able to continue operating without any hinderance during the jacking activities. Trains are permitted to run at a safe speed of 80km/hr whilst vehicular traffic are uninterrupted.
Our steel manufacturing output consists of bridge decks, ancillary support structures, specialist scaffolding systems, lattice frames, overhead gantries, equipment to the power industry, containment tanks, pressurised containers, civic buildings, railway stations, portal frames and road furniture such as Vehicle Restraint Systems and Environmental Noise Barriers.
With origins dating back to 1998, FerroStrada (UK) Limited introduced the first Vehicle Restraint Systems in to the UK impact tested according to BS EN 1317. Our systems are based on the initial starting point of embracing passive safety upon which we introduce concepts to dissipate energy to reduce the Acceleration Severity Index (ASI) and we became the first company to introduce H4a and H4b crash tested very high containment bridge parapet system fastened to the bridge deck with a single anchor set at 1.5m apart.
As the purpose of EN 1317 was to create a performance standard to harmonise industrial relations, the reality never quite reached the same intention, however our commitment to generate innovative, cost effective and suitable products remains our focal point.
Combining technical and commercial knowledge within our experienced supply chain FerroStrada has the ability to present unique integrated systems to cope with the challenges presented by an infrastructure in constant modernisation whilst embracing our commitment to protecting the environment.
We endeavour to procure all our materials from sustainable sources and as far as possible endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint and general waste to landfill. Our supply chain has been carefully selected to assist us in reaching our targets and we are proud our materials are 100% recyclable.
The primary range of Vehicle Restraint Systems we provide are manufactured in galvanised steel and are suitable for single sided verge applications and central reserves. Our systems comply with Normal Containment N2, High Containment H1, H2 and H3, and Very High Containment H4a & H4b.
In support of our steel range FerroStrada can also boast a superb range of vehicle restraint systems manufactured in in CorTen all-weathering steel and subtly reinforced with wood clad half round beams fastened to the CorTen safety beams. Since CorTen is an all-weathering steel it takes on a natural rustic bronze colour, which therefore naturally blends into the environment and lends itself to reduction of wooden elements required to conceal the steel making the system less of a maintenance burden.
