Finishes

Big R Bridges are renowned for their high-quality finishes.

Choose from a traditional weathering steel finish, creative paint scheme or long-lasting galvanized or metalized finishes to set your bridge apart for decades.

Weathering Retouched MCWeathering
A weathering steel superstructure is an economical choice, with a unique appearance that complements outdoor settings. Weathering steel naturally oxidizes to provide a protective patina that does not require painting. The color will vary regionally from dark brown to orange tones.

Sophisticated paint finishes can add another level of interest to an already stunning bridge. Architects, engineers and owners alike, specify factory-applied paint finishes to align their designs with neighboring structures or other urban design features.



Hot-Dip Galvanized ResizeHot-Dip Galvanized

Commonly used in coastal areas, a hot-dip galvanized finish increases the lifespan of a bridge by adding a metallurgically bonded zinc layer to the structural steel members. Speak to a Big R Bridge sales professional to learn more about component size limitations during the hot-dipping process.


Metalized Retouched MCMetalized

Metalizing is a process where zinc and/or aluminum is thermally applied to the steel surface. This finish provides a very uniform coating allowing for an additional clear or painted top coat as required.
