The advanced technology behind our Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) trail bridges and bridge decks eliminates the financial strain conventional products make on park operations budgets without sacrificing aesthetics.
We can tailor our products to blend in with their natural surroundings. FRP materials give our products superior strength and the ability to resist corrosion from water and chemicals.
Our light weight bridges and decks are easy to move and place. Available in a wide range of sizes, each bridge features a non-slip surface. Many railing and color options are available.
Our bridges are prefabricated for fast installation and include the option to add railings to curb tops. A fraction of the weight of steel bridge designs, our FRP trail bridges offer a 50-year lifespan. Requiring no maintenance, these cost-effective trail bridges provide a big value add.
Composite Advantage’s pedestrian truss bridges are available in spans 40 feet to 100 feet long. Their light weight sections are easy to move and assemble. This FRP product also offers composite material’s standard performance advantages of superior strength and corrosion resistance. CA offers color options for this product as well as a non-slip surface.
This FRP bridge option is the right choice for rehabbing older bridges, railroad bridge conversions, timber deck replacements and truss bridge improvements. FiberSPAN™ provides superior strength, corrosion resistance, a non-slip surface and color options.
