Why FRP Bridges are the Ideal Choice in Public Spaces

Discover the advantages of using an FRP solution in public recreational parks for durability and longevity.  

Advantages of Utilisng NatureTREAD™ FRP Solution in Public Recreational Parks

Treadwell’s NatureTREAD™ Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Solution serves as a prime example of maintaining structural integrity in an exposed environment. By addressing common challenges such as deterioration caused by corrosion and UV exposure, and product build-up, this solution offers non-corrosive properties owing to its FRP composition. Additionally, NatureTREAD™ provides reliable durability while requiring minimal upkeep. Its resilience makes it an ideal fit for parks, maintaining strength against varying weather conditions and avoiding corrosion issues often associated with steel or timber. Whether for bridges, boardwalks, or viewing areas, FRP proves to be a versatile choice. 

NatureTREAD™ FRP is easy to install and maintain. This can be attributed to the lightweight nature of FRP; allowing for a quick installation without the need for heavy machinery, combined with the enduring strength of FRP, for optimal user safety.  

NatureTREAD™ FRP Bridges: A Solution Against Corrosion's Harmful Impact

Corrosion poses a significant threat to public infrastructures, particularly in parks and open spaces, where it can degrade structures over time, making them unsafe or unusable for visitors. A prime illustration of this challenge is evident in bridges, typically constructed with steel components. Over time, exposure to sunlight and varying weather conditions can cause steel to rust, compromising its structural integrity. As a result, ongoing corrosion can necessitate frequent maintenance and even replacement, disrupting normal operations and inconveniencing park visitors. 

Balustrades have oxidised, leaving it susceptible to disintegration.

NatureTREAD™ FRP balustrades are corrosion resistant with UV stabilisers, ideal for the outdoor environment. Installed at Victor Harbour, South Australia. 

FRP, on the other hand, is resistant to environmental challenges. NatureTREAD™ FRP Bridges are corrosion-resistant with UV inhibitors, making them an ideal choice for outdoor environments. Additionally, our FRP bridges have fire-retardant additives, meaning that in the event of a fire, they will not fuel the flames.  

The benefits of using FRP in community recreational parks are evident. They offer outstanding durability, are lightweight and simple to install, and provide enhanced safety features. Opting for NatureTREAD™ FRP allows communities to guarantee the longevity and safety of their recreational park infrastructure.
