Composite Advantage (Dayton, Ohio, USA), designer and manufacturer of a range of composite bridge products under its FiberSPAN brand for pedestrian, bicycle and trail applications, has established partner company FRP Constructors LLC to provide critical on-site delivery and installation services for its fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) bridges and bridge decks.
“Installation of FRP bridges and decks is straightforward because our products are prefabricated and light in weight,” says Scott Reeve, president of Composite Advantage. “Customers and contractors sometimes have concerns though because the technology is fairly new to them. We can eliminate the guesswork and ensure a project’s success by giving them the option to have experienced personnel properly and quickly install our bridges and decks.”
In addition to installation of FiberSPAN products with railings, FRP Constructors can perform abutment work, bridge erection, finishing work, repair of structures with FRP materials and helical pile installation. Existing bridge structures can be removed for projects requiring bridge replacements.
FRP Constructors also provides repair services that include damage assessment, removal of damaged materials, and new material replacement for FRP piping, panel and plate applications. The company has the capability to work with all types of FRP repair materials and can provide PE-stamped repair plans.
FRP Constructors serves bridge customers in the Midwest region which covers Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Missouri. Installation in other regions is available for select projects. For more information visit: www.frpconstructors.com.
