Rigid Span Fiberglass Composite  ...better than concrete

 

  • excellent alternative to precast concrete designs which require more units to manufacture, ship and install
  • fiberglass composite has the lowest project bidder cost in place less
  • depth of section less than concrete, important for sites needing hydrology improvements
  • no need to cast in place a transverse concrete deck which takes time and money
  • less units to install reduces road closure time especially important to emergency service providers
  • robust, durable, immune to corrosion
  • high strength low weight at approx 1/5 th weight of concrete allowing for much larger parts
  • unlike concrete no water proofing required
  • modular in width up to 5m wide panels and length up to 15 m
