Refurbishing a Timber Arch Bridge 

Kalkar/ Am Wisseler See

Client: City of Kalkar

Year of construction: 1995

Lenght: 26,00 m
Width: 2,50 m

Structure: Main beam laterally covered with larch three-layer panels; topside titanium zinc sheet

Our service: consultancy timber works during refurbishment


The existing arch bridge was not sufficiently protected from weathering. To ensure protection, a lateral wooden cladding and top cover made of titanium zinc plates were installed. By these measures, the bridge is considered to be protected and prepared for many more years.
