FRP Deck Manufacturer: Composite Advantage

Project Description

After a brush fire destroyed the wood bridge and deck, a quick replacement was needed so pedestrians could cross over a multi-lane highway. Large prefabricated FRP deck panels were easily erected and greatly reduced construction time.

The deck size measures 459 by 7.83 feet, and each deck panel measures 40 feet by 7.83 feet. The deck is 3.5 inches deep, and the total area of the deck surface is 3,595 square feet.

The surface of the bridge deck was coated with an epoxy aggregate non-slip coating. The products used in this installation were prefabricated FRP bridge deck panels.
