Fiber Reinforced Polymer – Bridge Material
We manufacture our prefabricated footpath bridges from the highest quality structural fiberglass or lightweight fiber reinforced polymer (FRP). All FRP used in an Areté bridge is manufactured in the USA. FRP is a lightweight, high-strength, and corrosion and UV-resistant bridge material. This material is easy to transport and allows you to easily install the bridge.
