High Strength Fasteners for Bridges

Almost two years ago, I had a week-long vacation in California. I visited Sacramento, Los Angeles and later, I traveled on a road trip with my friends towards San Francisco. I enjoyed the trip especially when we pass the farmlands, vineyards and ranch. We also pass by barren lands, low mountains and one area that have windmills. The whole trip was pretty amazing. Finally, I was in great awe as we drove in the vicinity of San Francisco and saw the magnificent Golden Gate for the first time.

The architectural and suspension design of the bridge is impressive. The shape of the bridge towers and the lighting scheme are beautiful to view from a distance. The art deco elements such as the tower decorations, street lights, railings, and functional walkways add the beautiful design of the bridge. It has an orange color; very visible and attractive to see from the Bay area.

From the readings that I gathered online, I learned that the weight of the roadway on the bridge is hung from the two cables that pass through the two main towers. The cable is made of strands of wire and they are by the thousands therefore, this bridge is pretty safe.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge which span from the opening of the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. This bridge is noted as one of the most recognized symbols in the United States, in San Francisco as well as in the State of California. Aside from that, Golden Bridge is now known as one of the modern wonders of the World. From the hotel, I saw the bridge from the window and it was really gorgeous at night with all those lights. Golden Gate is a beautiful landmark and each high strength fasteners are made in excellent quality materials.
