bridges and structures

Deutsche Bahn, the railway regulator whose DBS 918002-2 standard is used for building both train and road bridges in Germany, has qualified SSAB’s Raahe, Finland mill for a wide range of hot-rolled steel heavy plates and wide strips in accordance with DIN EN 10025-2, -3, -4 and -5.

SSAB Weathering steels can be used on a variety of bridge structures, including I-beams/girders, cross members, trapezoidal sections, and piers. SSAB Weathering steel eliminates the need for painting and anti-corrosion treatments, significantly reducing CO2 emissions generated by coating maintenance.

Previously, SSAB’s Raahe mill was certified by Deutsche Bahn for steel plate and strip products according to DIN EN 10025-2. With the new DB approval, bridge and infrastructure engineers will now have additional steel options for their designs.
