The Bowie Bridge was inspired by the David Bowie song ‘Wild is the Wind’. The continuous fencing system of criss-crossed balusters, uninterrupted by posts, creates a fascinating image. The round, stainless steel balusters have varying diameters (max. 30 mm - 1.2”), which results in a particularly stiff, strong fence.
This fencing was specifically designed to prevent the possibility of users getting stuck between the balusters. If desired, the baluster pattern can be made denser in order to meet the most stringent safety standards. The Bowie Bridge is available in a slightly arched or flat version. The bridge’s maximum, uniformly distributed load-bearing capacity is 5 kN/m².
Bowie Bridges are available in a CorTen or coated steel version in which the round balusters are replaced by CorTen steel strips. The CorTen balusters have varying widths resulting in a strong and rigid fencing structure. A robust rounded handrail of FSC® hardwood sets off the fencing and is pleasant to the touch.
