The Bailey bridge was developed by the British engineer Donald Bailey. His concept was unique in that a small group of men could quickly build a bridge of almost any size without the use of heavy equipment. This was achieved by using light and portable standard elements.
The Artitec kit consists of two parts: a basic kit, containing enough parts to build a standard light bridge, and an expansion Set that allows for heavier constructions. Multiple expansion sets can be used to to create double or even triple Bailey bridges. From short light bridges to cross a small stream to heavy bridges on pillars crossing a ravine: the sky is the limit!
