BEDFORD, PA (February 10, 2023) — Bedford Reinforced Plastics — a full-service supplier offering an extensive line of fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) products and services — unveiled its ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges at the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show February 4 – 9, 2023, in Orlando. ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges are designed to carry golf carts, pedestrians and other vehicles up to 10,000 pounds.

ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges combine high strength with attractive design, making them a long-lasting and aesthetic choice for courses. Additional features include:

  • Durable construction with composite decking that significantly outlasts wood and steel bridges
  • Color options that blend in with a golf course’s natural surroundings
  • Easy installation

When wood and steel components fail, ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges will still be standing. That’s because the Bedford FRP structural components won’t rot, corrode, shrink, swell, warp or attract insects, and they’re resistant to extreme heat, rain, snow and high winds. The decking on ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges is made with WearDeckTM, a wood finish nearly indistinguishable from wooden bridges. The combination ensures the bridges will last — virtually maintenance-free — for as long as 75 years.

Just as important as the outstanding structural durability is the long-lasting aesthetics of a ReadySpan Golf Course Bridge. Because the color is ingrained throughout the composite material, there’s no fading and no color lost to scrapes and scratches. The bridge will look great for decades. You also won’t have to worry about rust stains or the splintering and cracking that traditionally appear on steel or wooden bridges. Bedford FRP holds up where other materials fail.

Since FRP is pound-for-pound as strong as steel but at a significantly lighter weight, it’s much easier to transport to the installation site. There’s also less risk of causing damage to the surrounding area. ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges install easily with ordinary tools, and all components come pre-drilled to save installation time.
