Building Prefab Bridges

With years of experience in the design and fabrication of both timber and steel bridges, Wheeler can determine the most efficient, cost-effective and aesthetic structure for your needs. Here, Wheeler's prefabricated steel bridge is the focus of a downtown renewal project. The smooth curves of the bowstring truss, a pedestrian viewing area and well landscaped surroundings attract the lunchtime crowd. Using maintenance-free weathering steel, the prefabricated bridge was ready to set in place right off the truck. Tropical hardwood decking provides an inviting walking surface. Attention to detail and modest accessories can create the centerpiece for your next project.

Refresh Your Park

Why settle for a single SprayGround setup that will eventually go stale, when you can keep your park as fresh as a Rain Drop every year. Rain Drop Products offers the patented technology of the OmnipodTM . It is one of the first in-ground components that allows you to easily switch, remove or add both above and below ground features on your SprayGround. It's just another fresh idea from Rain Drop Products.

Kids Will Go Loopy

Introduced in 2005 by Landscape Structures, the Mobius climber could pass for modern art, but every inch was designed to delight and challenge kids with loopy, twisty fun. The Mobius comes in four configurations: three-panel, six-panel, seven-panel and 12-panel. It also offers two panel colors: natural aluminum or bronze. The panel surfaces are built from corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum, which refracts sunlight and stays cool to the touch.
