Welcome to the FRP Bridge decking website from krafton®

krafton® 500.55 FRP Bridge Decking Plank

At 55 mm, this FRP bridge decking plank is slightly higher than our other FRP bridge decking elements. As such, the plank can handle heavier loads and is less subject to deflection. The result: a pedestrian or cycle bridge that service vehicles and even any incidental vehicles can cross with ease – unique for FRP bridge decking planks of this size.

The planks also allow for a larger span than would be possible with bridge decking planks of a lower height. Another advantage of 500 mm wide bridge decking elements is that they can be laid and assembled quickly, since fewer planks are required per linear metre.

An FRP bridge deck consisting of this type of plank is laid with a male-female connection. As a result, the bridge decking elements are arranged tightly against each other.

The krafton® 500.55 FRP bridge decking plank can be mounted on support structures made of steel, composite or wood.
