A Look That Lasts

Wood bridges rot. Steel bridges corrode. ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges last. 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 WearDeck™, a fiberglass-reinforced lumber that has a wood finish nearly indistinguishable from wooden bridges.*

*Pressure-treated Southern Yellow Pine is also available. 

Maintenance-Free Solution

Your ReadySpan Golf Course Bridge will last — virtually maintenance-free — for as long as 75 years. The color is ingrained throughout the FRP and composite materials, so your bridge will keep its like-new look. There’s no fading and no color lost to scrapes and scratches. You won’t lose any time or money repainting or re-staining because no color maintenance is needed, and you also won’t have to worry about the rust stains that appear on steel bridges from corrosion or the splintering and cracking common on wooden bridges. 

Design Options

So that ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges can blend easily into course designs, they’re available in several color options. They can cover spans up to 80', easily meeting any course need. You can choose from three guardrail options: decking only, decking with curbing, and decking with handrails. 

To make sure your bridge can handle the load demands, ReadySpan Golf Course Bridges are designed to carry pedestrians, golf carts and other vehicles up to 10,000 pounds. Plus, your bridge will be designed by Registered Professional Engineers to meet pedestrian, snow, wind, seismic and vehicle loads.

Is FRP really a better choice than traditional wood, steel and aluminum?
Yes! Bedford FRP offers all the strength of traditional materials while providing advanced protection against harsh weather, rot, rust, corrosion and more. Because FRP is pound for pound as strong as steel but at a significantly lower weight, it’s much easier to transport to the installation site and there’s less risk of causing damage to the surrounding area.
