600kg FRP bridge deck replaces a 2-3000kg timber bridge, delivered and put in place in just a few hours. The installation of our first generation of lightweight footbridge structures is over 3 years ago now.
Off site construction, means bridge production can continue all year round, and minimises installation times. This bridge replaces a corroded steel structure which had reached the end of its service life.
Lightweight FRP bridge deck for cycleway delivered. The 15m by 3m structure has been constructed off site and is being unloaded using a lorry mounted crane. Low dead weights allow simplified foundations especially where poor ground conditions exist.
A small bridge, just 5m span, used to gain public access across a drainage ditch into a local nature reserve. The client was concerned that a traditional timber structure would have reduced durability due to damp environment, so selected the […]
Our latest FRP bridge takes the route of a new footpath across a stream and safely away from a road. The low maintenance FRP solution, in an environment where a timber bridge would have a significantly lower life before major […]
