This trough bridge over the river Kinzig consists of two glulam beams in GL 28c, which are connected by galvanized steel U-frames. On the frames longitudinal beams are arranged, which carry the GRP decking. The glulam beams are provided on the inside with a base-top-paneling and on the outside with a shiplap paneling made of larch wood. On the upper side, these are covered with a zinc sheet. In the area of the covering, HPL panels have been used on the inside as paneling in order to use a very durable and moisture-resistant material in these areas which are difficult to access.
