Ideal for medium-sized applications.
Super•Cor combines the advantages of lightweight construction with the superior strength and durability of deep-corrugated galvanized steel to create buried bridges that can reach 25 m (82′).
The larger annular corrugations in Super•Cor provide nine times the stiffness of conventional structural plate, allowing it to withstand the heaviest of loads. Not only is Super•Cor the most versatile and economical corrugation on the market, it is also the most internationally accepted and widely used.
Super strong, flexible and resilient
Culvert tunnels made from Super•Cor carry loads through soil-structure interaction, meaning the steel structure and the backfill soils act together to support the loads. Settlement tolerances for structural plate corrugated steel pipe is much higher than that of traditional bridges and concrete structures, allowing for lower foundation costs.
Structural plate box culverts offer increased clearance and flow
Super•Cor structural plate box culverts offer optimal clearance boxes and hydraulic flow geometry along with shallow covers for low-rise applications.
Super•Cor is recommended for bridges, tunnels, grade separations, road or rail underpasses, stream crossings, box culverts, culvert relines, heavy haul road arches, stockpile tunnels, portals, canopies and storage structures.
