The Banagher Precast Concrete W Beam

The W Beam bridge beam was design and developed exclusively by Banagher Precast Concrete. The first ever W Beam was produced by Banagher Precast Concrete in 2005 and was manufactured for the Kinsale Road Flyover on the outskirts of Cork City.

There was considerable research, design and investment required to bring this new and unique Bridge Beam to the UK and Irish markets. The W Beam was developed by Banagher Precast Concrete as a more economical solution to traditional bridge beam types existing in the market. It is also capable of spanning in excess of 45m, which is beyond the range of other beam types.

As well as these benefits the W Beam is inherently more stable during transportation and erection on site, thus providing for better Health and Safety on sites.
