Short-lived bridge products that require constant care and regular replacement have prompted parks and recreation agencies to look for longer lasting alternatives.

Composite Advantage reports that its new line of standard size fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) trail bridges offers a zero maintenance option that lasts up to 100 years.

Based on the company’s FiberSPAN-T trail bridge first installed in 2008, the standard FRP system combines a prefabricated FRP composite deck with weathered steel beams and powder-coated aluminium railings to resist salt, water and chemical corrosion.

Composite Advantage’s FRP trail bridges are available in sizes 20 ft to 50 ft and meet AASHTO guide specifications for pedestrian bridge designs. A non-slip surface supports safe foot traffic and is reported to last five to six times longer than traditional sand-in-paint finishes. The sustainable product complements natural surroundings with colours that include brown, green and grey. Bridges arrive on-site fully assembled so installation takes just one day.

“We have been installing trail bridges that have a long life cycle and lower operational costs for more than a decade,” says Scott Reeve, President of Composite Advantage. “Our new standard line of prefabricated bridges makes selection easier for customers, shortens lead times, and reduces costs with production efficiencies. We continue to combine simplicity with high-performance attributes in a drop-in-place structure that requires light-duty equipment.”
