The combination of superior structural design, unique features and easy installation makes die Hallsten Corporation Aluminum Lite-Span Cover the most cost effective cover system available. Structural efficiency, born as a result of the rigorous competition found in municipal projects, results in a design that maximizes performance while considering the bottom line cost to construct.
Efficient and cost effective, the Hallsten Corporation Aluminum Lite-Span Cover is truly an innovation in structural technology. This unique system, the result of years of development, has been awarded numerous United States Patents. Each component has been carefully designed to assure maximum performance. Unique manufacturing and assembly techniques, including the use of specialized adhesives, provide the optimal use of aluminum's special physical properties. This proven technology is a direct descendent of the weld less aluminum structural system developed and patented by Hallsten Corporation for use in the rugged marine environment. With proven performance since 1966, the quality of Hallsten Corporation engineering has passed the test of time.
The Hallsten Corporation Aluminum Lite-Span Cover utilizes the efficiencies and simplicity of modular design. Although each cover is individually engineered, each shares a family of common components. This allows Hallsten Corporation to manufacture the cover system in a factory environment employing assembly line techniques and batch processing. The primary structural components, the beams, are sized and designed using computer analysis to optimize structural efficiency for each cover. The stacked beam assembly technique provides the ability to individually optimize each beam on every unique cover structure. Along with the patented Gear Hinged Access Hatch Panel, deck penetrations and other cover accessories are designed and constructed as an integral part of the cover structure. Deck penetration kits can be field installed to assure that there are no mistakes in the coordination of the trades. Course of construction changes can be easily accommodated with this combination of modular factory construction and field installable accessories and penetrations. The Hallsten Corporation Aluminum Lite-Span Cover system has been designed and is manufactured with real world construction in mind.
Efficient design results in cost savings. Savings are realized not only in the initial cost of the cover but also in the installation and maintenance. The Hallsten Corporation Aluminum Lite-Span Cover is less expensive to install and maintain because it has;
