Hi Sturm78,

excuse me, please, for my late answer.
The model of the pontoon bridge on Your pic is made with French pontoons.
Here a pic of a French pontoon bridge with these pontoons and captured pontoons on the pontoon trailer M 1935.
Unfortunately I cannot tell You the exact designation of this pontoon bridge material.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

in the meantime I could find some information about the French bridge building material. So on Your pic is bridge building material M 1935:

Model 1901 and Model 1935 equipment
The Mle 1901 crew deck equipment consisted mainly of metal boats (floating support bodies), metal pods (manoeuvring boats), fixed fir support bodies (trestles, deadbolts) and fir work equipment (beams and planks), fir (trestle, deadweight) and fir timber (beams and planks).
This equipment was used to build bridges or rafts known as portières. The Mle 35 bridge equipment includes heavier-duty duralumin boats and cradles, steel trestles and beams, and a variety of other materials, steel trestles and girders, and spruce planks. The Mle 1901- 1935 are made up of Mle 1901 boats and nacelles, with Mle 1935 travure equipment (Translated with DeepL.com)

Best regards

Bert
