Under Bridge Inspection Equipment Available for Rent at Northern Strands

Narrow bridge? Low clearance bridge? No problem. The Northern Strands HP 32 Hydra Platform is able to work in tight confines with ease. Recently deployed on a secondary highway just 2 lanes wide with no shoulders, the Hydra Platform was able to complete the project well within the confines of a single lane, with minimal disruption of traffic flow. This particular bridge project also had a fairly restricted amount of clearance from underside of bridge to the water, but our HP 32 was able to get the workers safely under the bridge to quickly and easily complete their tasks.  

Our customer had us scheduled for 2-3 days on the project, but due to the Hydra Platforms quick deployment time, our portion of the work was completed in less than 1 day!

The Northern Strands® Hydra Platform trailer-mounted model HP 32 is a comprehensively equipped under-bridge access and work platform, mounted on a mobile trailer for versatility. Each Northern Strands® Hydra Platform trailer model features a patented Tower Separation System, which includes hydraulically adjustable cross-linking arms between the main outside vertical tower and the turntable sub-frame, mounted on the trailer. This allows operators to erect and extend the tower and the platform over pedestrian sidewalks and other barriers without restricting the under-bridge operations. On all its trailer-mounted models, Northern Strands Hydra Platform offers standard Dual Side Hydraulic Outrigger Stabilizers, providing maximum stability and an added level of safety. It’s all part of the commitment of Northern Strands Hydra Platform to provide the utmost in safety and quality to its customers.

The Hydra Platform is the ideal under bridge access equipment:
  • Repairs
  • Bridge rehabilitation
  • Stripping operations
  • Painting and sandblasting
  • General maintenance
  • Replacement and maintenance of bearings
  • Installation and maintenance of under-bridge pipes and cables and more!
