While the design of booms may appear simple, they include details that ensure their strength, safety and longevity. For instance Two Track Cantilevers look like quite basic structures, but due consideration must be given to the fact that the asymmetric design creates an overhanging load which leads to a turning effect on the single, offset support. Further this load can increase considerably by the weight of snow and ice and wind loads that can be experienced in the most extreme winter conditions.

It is this type of knowledge that adds to boom performance and can make both their manufacture and installation more efficient, while also improving service life. ECS has produced large and small bridges and structures to meet the particular requirements of a huge range of structural and engineering projects.
