FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTIC BRIDGES
Bridge and modular pontoon
In areas including aerospace, the automotive industry, the utility industries and shipbuilding, the use of fibre reinforced plastics ( FRP ) has long been established. The advantages of this composite material are such that clever applications have found their way into the civil engineering industry. The unique composite bridges of Janson Bridging are perfect example of this.
Demand for composite bridges is increasing rapidly and that's not surprising. The technological developments in the field of fibre reinforced plastics in recent years has been significant. Bridges made entirely of composite and hybrid structures – steel bridges carrying FRP decks – are produced by the Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding Process. Through a Pultrusion technique, deck profiles for pedestrian bridges are produced. This has led to applications in bridge building that until recently were not possible, and with investments that are extremely attractive, both in cost per year as well as in relation to the technical capabilities of steel or concrete bridge. Our composite bridges and pontoons provide convincing evidence.
