Fibre Reinforced Polymer Road and Footbridges
ECS Engineering Services is a distributor of highly durable fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridges.
FRP offers a host of advantages when compared to virgin materials, providing a winning combination of sustainability and durability. Infracore® technology places polymer layers in opposing directions held together by a continuous structural connection between the layers, ensuring that FRP cannot delaminate in application.
Suitable for road or footbridges, ECS has even floated FRP bridge structures down the River Thames for installation on-site.
The benefits of FRP include:
- Manufactured from recycled materials
- Highly resistant to corrosion and UV radiation
- Suitable for use in wet environments
- Superior anti-slip properties
- Easy to fabricate
- Low weight
- Reduced transportation costs
- Low maintenance
