Ultra•Cor is the world's strongest structural steel plate. 

With the introduction of Ultra•Cor, AIL is taking engineered structural plate to new dimensions in capability and performance.

Ultra-deep corrugations support the heaviest loads.

Ultra•Cor combines all the advantages of lightweight construction with previously unheard-of strength and durability to create the largest corrugated metal structures in the world today.

                  Reinforced concrete footings are cast over the prepared site.
                  The first arch segment is completely assembled on the ground.

                  The first arch segment is completely assembled on the ground.

                  Then, it is lifted into place and bolted to the footings on either side.
                  The segments bolt into base channels, integrated into the concrete.

                  The segments bolt into base channels, integrated into the concrete.

                  Plates then attach individually to make up other arch segments.
                  If specified, reinforcement ribs are then added.

                  Layers of engineered backfill are added in sequential lifts.
                  Then the completed road surface is added with safety barriers.
