• Reduced weight — the reduced dead weight of the deck allows the bridge to carry an increased traffic load.
  • Decreased Effects from Environment – FRPs don’t rust and aren’t affected by salts and other contaminants. They can be affected by ultraviolet radiation (UV) but that is easily resolved by adding pigments to the polymer when it is constructed. This reduces their maintenance costs and promises a longer lifespan.
  • Speed in Installation — Since FRP bridges can be built in a factory, they can trucked to a site and installed in considerably less time than it would take to built a bridge on site. Iron workers consistently indicate that GFRP rebar is easier to install. Its lightweight reduces work time lost due to injuries.
  • Reduced initial costs of structures- redesigned structures that take advantage of GFRP rebar’s features result in lower overall material costs due to reduced concrete cover or reduction in membrane use.  In   bridge barrier applications a reduction in rebar sizes is being considered due to the high strength of GFRP rebar.

Slab On Grade (Driveways, Sidewalks, Curbs):

GFRP Fiberglass rebar prevents rust stains and reduces concrete cracking. It extends concrete life significantly especially if the slab is exposed to heavy traffic.

Slab Below Grade (Elevators, Basement, Underground Water Tanks):

In these applications our FRP bar is perfect. These structures allow for water and moisture to trapped causing corrosion to build up substantially faster than above grade installations. When using our fibre glass rebar in these structures it will reduce maintenance and repairs and increase safety.
