corrugated metal bridge


Bolt-A-Plate® structures are effectively utilised as strong and economical alternatives to elaborate bridge replacement by municipal and provincial governments.

Bolt-A-Plate® is ideal for:

  • Underpasses
  • Culverts
  • Stream enclosures
  • Fishways
  • Bridge replacement
  • Utilidors


High Profile arches are engineered to maintain a natural waterway and allow for an abrasive bedload. Additionally, these arches are ideal for projects that include large end areas or large spans. The high profile arch is also used for highway grade separations.

  • Clearance Box sizes are available from your local ACP representative.
  • Standard and Low Profile arches anchored on footings are ideal for installations where there is limited headroom and low height of cover restrictions. They are especially useful in sites where it is desirable to maintain natural stream beds and are widely used for stream enclosures, culverts and storm sewers.
  • Pear Shape is generally used for railway tunnels and underpasses. With proper end treatment, Bolt-A-Plate® provides access and protects the environment from erosion problems.
  • Round Pipe is the most common and versatile of the Bolt-A-Plate® shapes. This shape is used primarily for culverts, sewers and sub-drains, but is also appropriate for storage bins, tunnels and bridges.
  • Pipe-Arch is ideal for bridges and underpasses with limited overhead clearance. Pipe-arch’s unique shape provides hydraulic advantages at low flow rates for culverts and sewers.
  • Elliptical shapes are commonly used for underpasses and service tunnels. The horizontal ellipse is better suited for multi-lane, vehicular underpasses, while the vertical ellipse shape is more appropriate for single lane vehicular and railway underpasses.
  • Bolt-A-Plate® provides overhead protection from falling rock and mudslides and blends in with the structures’ natural surroundings.

Merger of Australian Construction Products and Safe Direction

We are delighted to announce the merger of Safe Direction Pty Ltd and Australian Construction Products Pty Ltd (ACP).
On 1 May 2023 Jaybro, Australia’s leading supplier to the civil construction and infrastructure sector, and owner of ACP, purchased 100% of the share capital of Safe Direction. Under Jaybro’s ownership the two businesses will be merged to form Australia’s preeminent company manufacturing and supplying vehicle barrier systems.

A compelling motivation for the merger is the value created for our customers from combining the collective resources and knowledge of the two companies. Notably there will be significant broadening of the product range and enhancement to distribution reach and capacity. There will be transitionary steps as the two businesses assemble under the one entity, Safe Direction. Part of this transition includes the consolidation of the products and services offered by the merged business into a single web domain

We trust that this merger will provide increased value to you and we look forward to the opportunity to be of assistance.
