Power Engineering and Powerstrut.Com Delivers Safer Bridge Inspection Walkways

SHREWSBURY, Mass., Sept. 24 -- Power Engineering and Powerstrut.Com's Heavy Duty Grip Strut Bridge Walkways, trademark of GS Metals, transform unsafe inspection walkways into sturdy catwalks. Power Engineering and GS Metals is delivering its promise to supply inspectors a safer, more efficient approach to inspecting any bridge's underside. At hundreds of feet above rivers and lakes, these rickety walkways create a potentially dangerous situation -- not to mention an uneasy experience for inspection workers.

Heavy Duty Grip Strut Bridge Walkways will solve this problem for many inspectors across the country. The federal government through Title 23, mandates annual inspections of spans underneath the bridge. Navigating sharp angles and walking on precarious, narrow lengths of bar grating becomes a very difficult challenge. To add to the increasing demand for safer bridges, inspection walkways are necessary and Departments of Transportation across the country are undertaking inspection projects in order to bring our many thousands of bridges into safety compliance. Replacing existing catwalk system is the perfect opportunity to start the upgrading process according to many bridge engineers.
