Experts in advanced materials manufacturing
CMSI Infrastructure is a Certified InfraCore inside manufacturer with exclusive rights for manufacturing and distributing InfraCore Inside bridges in the Canadain market. CMSI will use the patented InfraCore inside technology to manufacture the bridges for the Canadian market to the exacting standards used by InfraCore’ s other international partners including FiberCore Europe. InfraCore’ s international Certified Manufacturing partners have constructed and installed over 1000 bridges worldwide.
CMSI produces bridges, composite mat solutions and bridge decks of advanced FRP material. We do this with our team of engineers and manufacturing specialists. We build the bridges in our factory in Edmonton Alberta, and deliver them prefab to the construction sites nationwide. We are your partner in bridges from A to Z.
Our secret? InfraCore® technology. That makes our prefab solutions lightweight, robust, solid and sustainable. They last for generations.
Almost every bridge and bridge deck that CMSI constructs and installs are equipped with the InfraCore® Inside. A patented technology that makes it possible to produce FRP panels, that can withstand heavy loads, in an industrial way. With this invention, FiberCore Europe paved the way in 2008 for fiber-reinforced polymer structures in construction & infrastructure.
NO DELAMINATION OR CRACKING
CMSI InfraCore® technology prevents delamination and cracking, a known problem with FRP support structures. The solution was found in a continuous structural connection of glass fibers (or carbon fibers) between the top and bottom of the structure. The fiberglass mats run from the upper skin through body plates to the lower skin. And by placing the fibers in all directions, resin-dominated fracture surfaces are avoided. The construction contains no internal glues or bolted connections. The strength comes entirely from the fibers, which themselves are stronger than steel.
TESTED FOR LOAD, DAMAGE AND FATIGUE
The InfraCore® technology has been tested for a combination of stress, impact damage and fatigue. This shows that no delamination can occur due to fatigue in damaged plates. All constructions with InfraCore® Inside will comply with Canadian bridge construction codes.
We only have one earth and we have to treat it with care. With CMSI FRP construction materials and construction techniques we contribute to making the infrastructure market more sustainable.
CMSI bridge and mat structures are extremely strong. FRP is stronger than steel. The unique InfraCore® technology prevents delamination and cracking.
CMSI bridges and mats are resistant to moisture, rot and mold and insensitive to temperature changes. They are also resistant to vandalism and graffiti are easy to remove.
CMSI bridges and mats have a lower weight than traditional steel and concrete structures. As a result, the underlying construction can be lighter and therefore reduce transport and construction installation times.
CMSI bridges and mats are designed and engineered to be very robust and meet the highest safety standards. Our bridges and mats are virtually indestructible and comply with all Canadian building codes.
CMSI bridges, mats and bridge decks are designed for a very long service life. By using InfraCore® Inside, our products retain their strength and sturdiness for decades.
