Bascule Bridges

Autoquip Bascule Bridges are hydraulically-operated drawbridges used to temporarily span a traffic way, such as a railway spur, alleyway, or dock-to-truck loading platform. The hydraulic bridge leaf/platform can be raised and safely stored in the full vertical position when not in use, eliminating the possibility of interference with rail or other cross-traffic. Bascule Bridges are available in single leaf for short spans across single rail spurs, double leaf for longer spans crossing two or more rail tracks, and double wide to permit two-way traffic across the leaves. We have been manufacturing industrial Bascule Bridges for over 35 years, and we are one of the few companies to still offer this unique style of hydraulic drawbridge.
