FRP - Fibre Reinforced Polymer
Built for the Conditions, Built to Last
FRP offers high strength, light weight, and long service life as it is not prone to corrosion, rot, expansion or contraction. It is impervious to acid sulphate soils and alkaline or salt. The structures are suited to withstand the harshest environments.
FRP bridge constructions are perfect for coastal, marine, and environmentally sensitive areas. They will not leach into waterways, while providing a low maintenance, long life asset to local communities. They require minimal maintenance, which is first needed at 50 years offering long term durability. The colour choice is yours, allowing the bridge to align with the aesthetics of your project’s environment. The design life is 100 years, making FRP structures a cost-effective solution for the total life of your asset.
Watch the video below to learn how Bridge It NZ progressively constructed a robust, lightweight and strong FRP structure using minimal plant and a small excavator keeping costs down.
