These ‘work on’ tents are very suitable for the modernisation of (steel) bridges and (conditioned) maintenance activities among which renewing of the pavement. It is a pleasant work climate for the maintenance staff! The ‘work on’ tent is used on the Haringvlietbrug in the autumn of 2008 and has a length of 400 m, a width of 13.5 m. The altitude of the tent is such that 2 trucks can pass each other.
The construction has been designed to resist of wind strength 10. The tent is very stable and can very well absorb wind pressure waves caused by passing traffic (on the adjacent lane).
