FIBER REINFORCED POLYMER
Prefabricated Trail Bridges
At Areté Structures, we supply prefabricated trail bridges made from lightweight fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) also called structural fiberglass. The FRP bridge material is lightweight, high strength, corrosion and UV resistant, easy to install, and customizable.

FRP Trail Bridge Design Style
We can design the decking to accommodate the use and purpose of the bridge. Additionally, you can choose from FRP non-skid decking or grating or timber decking.
Our standard olive green color is ideal for park and trail bridges. If you prefer another option, we can work with you to modify the color to fit your needs.
Flame Retardant Resin
All of the Areté bridges can be manufactured from FRP with a flame retardant resin in the color slate gray.
We can customize our bridges for your specific needs. Bridge configurations we manufacture include truss, underslung truss, or simple I-beam stringer bridges, depending on the need and design constraints. Bridges can also be customized to adjust the decking design, bridge color, and flame retardance resin to meet your needs.
Assembly and Installation
Our FRP trail bridges can typically be assembled in 1-2 days using standard hand tools. Our bridges include full assembly plans with easy-to-follow instructions, an assembly manual, and instructional video.
