High-Performance Steel Structures for Road Signs

single-bar construction

Industrieanlagenbau GmbH (IAB) specialises in the development, production and installation of create high-quality steel structures. Its current product range includes container and constructional steel assemblies for a wide range of industries, including road traffic, energy and mobile communications.

Steel structures for road signs and toll systems

IAB supplies structures for dynamic traffic systems, static signage and toll systems for the road industry.

The company's carrying structures are planned and produced according to the specifications of the RVS in Austria and the ZTV-ING in Germany, and mounted over motorways and highways.

Accessible double-bar structures, spanning up to 55m, are typically used for dynamic traffic guidance systems.

For static signage on cross-country roads, highways and motorways, single-bar structures are used as cantilevers or sign bridges. Depending on customer requirements, the carrying frameworks are accessible or inaccessible. Single-bar designs span up to 28m.

Dedicated carrying structure series for toll systems are planned depending on the requirements of carrying loads and spans. They are usually presented as modular builds, to map all necessary spans with one structural concept.
