FRP products in Construction
Due to its range of beneficial properties, contractors use FRP in a variety of settings. FRP panels commonly find use within:
- Access and safety structures. FRP’s non-slip, durable surface makes it an ideal material for building safer access platforms, catwalks, stairs, and railings.
- Pedestrian bridge decking. FRP’s non-slip texture also makes it well-suited for pedestrian bridge paneling. FiberSPAN is lightweight yet sturdy, with a slight give that makes it a more comfortable walking surface than concrete.
- Vehicular bridge decking. Even at a fraction of the weight of concrete, sturdy FiberSPAN-V panels will withstand heavy dynamic loads from motor traffic.
- Rail platforms. FiberSPAN-R rail platforms are highly corrosion-resistant and better withstand frequent exposure to adverse weather and corrosive deicing chemicals than comparable construction materials.
- Tanks and piping. Low weight and high corrosion resistance make FRP composites an ideal material for many industrial applications, including processing tanks and pipes.
- Balconies. Pre-fabricated FiberSPAN balconies are affordable and easy to install, yet they promise decades of slip-free performance under even heavy foot traffic.
- Architectural details.FRP is easily color matched to existing facades, making it a great candidate for exterior building design features. FRP may be especially useful on exposed detailing, doubling as a protective, weather-resistant element.
These examples represent only a fraction of relevant use cases for FRP and FiberSPAN. For applications not listed, Tstar Composites Group will work with you to identify a material that matches your specifications and budget.
