Agriculture

Farm buildings and trellising are exposed to some pretty harsh conditions — from fertilizers and pesticides to severe weather. Bedford’s fiberglass reinforced plastic stands up to it all.

Applications

Ag utility buildings, machine shed framing, grain handling and fertilizer storage are some of the potential uses for FRP pultrusions. Handrails, platforms, stairs and decking are also available.

Grain Elevators: Bedford can supply a complete system of platforms, stairs and handrails that stand up to corrosive conditions and seasonal temperature changes.

Farm Buildings: Bedford FRP structural members are ideal for ag building structures and enclosures because they won’t warp, rot or corrode.

Advantages

  • Light weight, high strength — easier to transport and install with standard tools
  • Corrosion resistant — great around water, chemicals and livestock
  • Long-lasting — lower lifetime cost than traditional building materials
  • Humidity resistant — no shrinking or swelling
  • Safety — won’t conduct electricity, and nonslip surfaces are available
  • Low maintenance — molded-through color does not require painting
  • Low thermal conductivity — it’s a good insulator
