The NEXT Beam

The NEXT Beam ("F" beam design)

A superior alternative to concrete box beams for 30' to 90' spans

The NEXT Beam is a new product offered by the High Bridge Team, a cooperative effort between High Steel Structures LLC and its supplier, High Concrete Group LLC. 

NEXT Beam was developed by PCINE (Precast / Prestressed Concrete Institute North East) along with the Departments of Transportation for NY, CT, MA, VT, ME, NH, and RI.

NEXT Beam is a bridge double-tee with a 13” wide tee leg that is much stouter than those used in parking structures, for greater strength and shallower depths.

Designers and project owners will find the NEXT Beam is a superior alternative to traditional concrete box beams, providing improved durability, lower cost, easier inspection and rapid bridge construction.

The NEXT Beam is available in two designs:

• “F” or “Form" Beam - the top flange creates a form for the deck

• “D” or “Deck" Beam – the thick top flange comprises the deck

Section properties:

• Depth – 24” to 36”
• Span range – 30’ to 90’
• Beam width - varies from 8’ to 12’
• Skew - up to 30 degrees with the present standard

More information about the NEXT Beam can be found in the Accelerated Bridge Construction section of the Technical Library.
