Bailey bridges the advantages of easy assembly and installation


The Bailey System
Double Lane Bailey Bridge are built on site from a pre-engineered system of ready-to-assemble components. Utilizing standardized prefabricated components, Bailey bridges can be built to match a wide range of vehicular bridging applications. Because of their excellent versatility and overall value, thousands of Bailey bridges have been installed throughout the world.


* Adaptable - pre-engineered to match each application

* Fast - modular stocked components, open to traffic in days

* Lower Cost - an alternative to custom designed bridges

* Easy - to handle, transport, assemble, install and reuse

Materials and Finishes

Domestic steel is used throughout. Most load-bearing components use low-alloy, high-tensile ASTM A242 steel with a yield point of 50,000 psi. Excellent corrosion resistance is achieved with an inorganic zinc silicate coating. Final color is lusterless light gray. Hot dipped galvanized is also available. Such as galvanized bridge.

Standardized Components

The key to the Bailey system is the ingenious set of precision-made, interchangeable steel

components from which all Bailey structures are assembled.

Made in the U.S.A. — U.S. Army Standard

The U.S. M2 Bailey components supplied by Bailey Bridges, Inc., are either original U.S. Army equipment, or newly manufactured in the U.S.A. to those exacting specifications, utilizing domestic steel. It remains the current standard panel bridge of the U.S. Army.

Ease of Assembly and Installation

Most Pedestrian Bailey Bridge are assembled and installed in a matter of days by a small crew. Common hand tools are utilized. All connections are pinned, bolted or clamped. No welding is necessary. Disassembly is similarly easy, and components can be stored in minimal space until reused. Bailey bridges are often installed by the cantilever launching method, in which the assembled bridge together with a “launching nose” is rolled out across the gap, without falsework or heavy equipment. The cantilever method allows bridges to be quickly erected over rivers or deep gorges. Additionally, some Bailey bridges may be hoisted into place by crane.
