With a composite bridge made of fibreglass you get a strong, light and corrosion free construction - a cost efficient alternative to traditional bridges, such as concrete bridges, steel bridges, or timber bridges.
With a wide range of different geometries, planks and handrail systems, the design possibilities are many for your next composite bridge: A full GRP bridge, a hybrid bridge with steel structure/steel reinforcement and composite decks , refurbishment of existing bridge deck or handrails using durable composite components, as well as bridge cladding with composite planks.

Our fibreglass profiles and planks combine a number of different advantages not found in traditional materials, which makes them suitable for bridge designs. The strength as steel and low weight make assembly and installation easy saving costs for heavy-load cranes as well as time-consuming ad expensive closure of busy roads.
Furthermore, the fibreglass bridges have a long life expectancy with only little maintenance needed. this makes it possible to save costs for operation and maintenance. Learn more in our many case stories
Finally, our fibreglass products are produced using an energy-efficient production process called pultrusion. In addition, the material's excellent durability means that very few maintenance resources are required. The materials can be re-used when they are no longer needed, for instance in cement production.
Other advantages includes:
At the start of the project, a strong and light material like fibreglass allows you to design a lighter construction and reduce material use and associated costs. The construction cost of a fibreglass bridge will also often be lower since our customers avoid having to use expensive special machines and cranes. Additionally, the installation time can be reduced since the fibreglass bridges can be assembled at the workshop and transported in an assembled state, thanks to their low weight.
In the long term, there are also savings to be made with a fibreglass bridge. This is because our fibreglass planks are corrosion-free and do not rust, rot or corrode. This results in minimal maintenance requirements, making fibreglass a cost-effective solution when looking at the entire life of the bridge. We stand by the high quality of our planks and therefore offer an extended warranty.
Fibreglass is the perfect choice for your next bridge project. Our planks have a unique durability, making them well-suited for use in the demanding environments that bridges are often built in. These include proximity to seawater, fresh water, in natural settings with shifting weather conditions as well as on footbridges, where salting is necessary. You can also customise your next bridge, e.g. add extra width for cycle bridges, higher load-bearing capacity to support tractors or painting to fit the surroundings.
Do you need a footbridge or cycle bridge, or should the bridge be able to handle periodic traffic from heavier machines? And how high should your railings be? Here at Fiberline Building Profiles, we can help you answer all these questions. We have many years of experience with bridges. In fact, we even took part in the first fibreglass bridge installation in Scandinavia, which took place in Kolding, Denmark. See how others have done it
As well as choosing a complete fibreglass bridge, you can also opt for fibreglass planks in a hybrid solution with steel or wood. Fibreglass has almost the same coefficient of expansion as steel and wood, so they work well together in bridges. Often, our customers use fibreglass planks as a bridge deck in a hybrid solution, with steel beams or a wooden construction as frame. We also recommend railings and handrails in fibreglass, as this is a great area to take advantage of the low maintenance requirements. Check out our numerous solutions here
