FULL FRP BRIDGES

Full FRP bridges

What typifies full FRP bridges is the substructure, the bridge deck and the railings are all made of FRP material. Steel is used only in the form of bolts, nuts and washers. With standard profile program from Fiberline, it is possible to configure and build full FRP bridges up to a span of 20 meters. Full FRP bridges are usually pedestrian or bicycle bridges with traffic loads up to 12 tons. Spans up to 10 meters are possible with a girder-substructure while spans over 10 meters require trusses. Weight of the bridges is around 60-80 kg/m2 including the anti-skid surface and price is 1200-2000 EUR/m2*.

Fiberline Medium Duty Plank
Fiberline Medium Duty Plank is designed with an excellent price-performance ratio. The plank weighs only 6.58 kg/m, making it easy to handle on-site. Like other products from Fiberline, plank MD is made of GFRP. This material has noteworthy properties such as a long, proven service life as well as high corrosion resistance and strength. Fiberline plank MD is also available with anti-skid surface

Fiberline Heavy Duty Plank
The strong Fiberline Heavy Duty Plank is suitable for applications were load requirements are 5 kN/m2 and point loads are 10 kN, e.g. decks for bike paths and pedestrian bridges. Plank HD is corrosion-free and has a long service life, even under demanding and corrosive conditions, e.g. swimming pools, industry and cooling towers settings as well as offshore. Other advantages include great strength, low weight and electrical insulation. Plank HD is also available with anti-skid surface.

Fiberline Ultra Duty Plank
The Ultra Duty Plank is our strongest bridge decking, designed to meet the most stringent load requirements for pedestrian and cycle bridges. The UD plank reduces the weight of the structure and is easy to work with at the installation site. It is also corrosion-resistant against a range of chemicals and salt water. Asphalt or PPMA/Epoxy strewn with sand or gravel can be used as a wearing surface.

Combining advantages

CE marking

Our products have a number of international and highly sought-after certifications, among other, within the construction, offshore and railway sectors. This is your guarantee of consistently high quality every time you buy from us and use our products.

Low weight

Fiberline's GRP profiles are low in weight. This makes them easier to work with and means that great weight savings can be achieved on the finished structure.

Great strength

Fiberline Building Profiles give you the same great strength as steel, but at only a quarter of the density. It is also possible to make weight savings in comparison with aluminium, as the density is 30 % lower.

Corrosion-free

Our fibreglass profiles are resistant to aggressive chemicals, and liquids. This makes them ideal for wastewater treatment plants, swimming pools, cooling towers and construction, where there is a risk of corrosion.

Chemical resistance

Our fibreglass profiles are resistant to aggressive chemicals, liquids and alkalis. This makes them ideal for wastewater treatment plants, swimming pools, cooling towers and construction, where there is a risk of corrosion.

Electrical insulation

Fiberline's GRP profiles provide electrical insulation and minimise the complexity of earthing. This makes our profiles a future-proof choice where the costs of both installation and future inspections can be reduced considerably.

Easy to work with

GRP profiles are just as easy and fast to work with as timber. This means that solutions which incorporate our profiles can be installed easily on site or adjusted to fit existing components, such as piping systems, etc.

Thermally Insulating

Fiberline's fibreglass profiles have a significantly lower heat distribution gradient than steel and aluminium, enabling energy-efficient end products.

Minimal maintenance

Our GRP profiles have unrivalled durability and a long life, even in demanding conditions.

Sustainable

Fiberline's fibreglass profiles are produced using an energy-optimised process that takes the environment into consideration.
