Webnet bridge over the creek Trub
05. November 2020

Unique footbridge with Webnet

The new suspension bridge near our headquarters in Trubschachen is almost finished. It is highly innovative, using Webnet instead of cables as hangers. This lends the bridge a very elegant look.

The bridge makes full use of the Jakob range of stainless steel products. The wire mesh Webnet is suspended on open spiral strand ropes of the construction type 1 × 37 with a diameter of 26 millimeters. The M36 rods and clevisses from the Jakob Forte range anchor the bridge into the concrete foundations.

Designed by the Jakob engineering team, produced by Jakob Saigon and installed by Jakob Switzerland, the bridge demonstrates the capabilities of Jakob Rope Systems.  

We would like to thank all sponsors and partners, the community of Trubschachen, Thuner Bau AG and Kambly SA for their support.
