Chockfast to secure the rotation of Europe’s largest swing bridge

An injection of Chockfast® Orange to protect the rotation system.

We see every project as a challenge, a new opportunity to help our customers find the perfect shimming and sealing solution. Here’s a collaboration that’s been brilliantly realized!

The challenge

Reduced and variable thicknesses, and specifications requiring a resin resistant to high compressive loads and wear. On the other hand, the formwork had to be installed and finalized before its final dimensions were known.

The Finres SA proposal

Chockfast ® Orange was suggested to Demako as the ideal product for this type of application. To achieve this, Finres has designed an adaptive formwork system that allows the product to be injected independently of the final thickness.

The realization

The adaptive formwork was installed on the support plate of the rotating system prior to the installation of the bridge deck. The customer was then able to place the bridge in its final position in relation to the rotating system. Finres SA then injected an impressive quantity of orange Chockfast® between the bridge and its supporting carrousel. All these specific tasks were carried out in complete safety while working at a height of 4m.

A huge thank you to Jan Tiré, Project Manager at Demako, for his confidence and his testimonial:

“In order to fill a 10 m² area between our mechanical parts and a 2000-ton steel structure, we were looking for a flexible partner ready to take on the challenge. The area to be covered had an irregular shape and variable height. Finres was able to come up with an original solution, which was implemented quickly and smoothly. Thanks to the great care taken in determining the approach and preparing the work, we are extremely satisfied with the cooperation on this complex assignment.”

We’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that we’ll be taking part in the Pumps&Valves show on March 23 and 24, 2022! Don’t hesitate to drop in, we’ll be happy to explain our different areas of expertise in detail and discuss your project!
