Pedestrian Bridges

Need a versatile option for pedestrian walkways? Bedford’s fiberglass reinforced plastic decking solves your challenges. It won’t rot or warp like wood. It won’t corrode like steel. And it even offers the safety advantage of a nonslip coating. FRP pultrusions are exceptionally strong yet lightweight and can last longer than traditional building materials for a lower total cost over the life of the product. That makes fiberglass pedestrian bridges the ideal solution.

Applications

Choose the lap joint decking design for areas with structural inaccuracies, or interlocking fiberglass deckboard for quick, easy installation.

Advantages

  • Light weight, high strength — easier to transport and install with standard tools
  • Corrosion resistant — won’t rot, rust, warp or bow
  • Long-lasting — lower lifetime cost than traditional building materials
  • Dimensional stability — no shrinking or swelling
  • Nonconductive — won’t conduct electricity
