Wastewater & Water Treatment

For long-term durability, traditional materials just can’t compete with Bedford’s FRP profiles. Fiberglass reinforced plastic won’t rot, rust or corrode. It offers the flexibility of a wide range of shapes and sizes. And it delivers high strength without the weight, so facilities save on freight and installation. You can also visit our Featured Projects page to see Bedford materials used in unique ways for a variety of industries.


Bedford offers many different FRP structural shapes, including sludge flights, trash racks, cell dividers, trough components, parallel plates, gate guides and odor containment covers. We also manufacture walkways, guardrails, ladders, and a weir and scum baffle product line. All products are available with NSF potable water certification.

Handrails, Platforms and Stairs: ReadySeries modular FRP structural products provide a durable, nonslip walking surface for corrosive environments like water treatment facilities.


  • Light weight, high strength — easier to transport and install with standard tools
  • Corrosion resistant — won’t rot, rust or warp and absorbs little moisture
  • Long-lasting — lower lifetime cost than traditional building materials
  • Dimensional stability — no shrinking or swelling
  • Safety — FRP is nonconductive, and nonslip surfaces are available
  • Low maintenance — molded-through color does not require painting
