Fiberline has teamed up with a new Austrian distributor, Duscheck & Duscheck, for the supply of composite bridges.
Fiberline explains that, having previously concentrated on bridges made of steel, timber and concrete, Duscheck & Duscheck are now expanding their portfolio to include a lightweight, strong and durable alternative in the form of bridges designed and built using composite profiles from Fiberline.
Duscheck & Duscheck states it has more than 15 years' experience of building bridges across the country and expects to offer both complete composite solutions as well as hybrid solutions consisting of steel and composite. With its low weight, composite is also a logical choice for renovating existing bridges, with other advantages such as an effective non-slip surface.
Company Head Johannes Duscheck commented "Composite is an energy-efficient material with high strength and long life. And the ability to prefabricate large constructions in our factory will mean added benefits for customers in the form of short installation time and minimal disruption to traffic."
