InfraCore® FRP Bridges
CMSI (CMS Infrastructure) bridges featuring our InfraCore® technology outperform and outlast traditional concrete and steel bridges. InfraCore’s ingenious, patented design offers numerous advantages:
✓ Strength - FRP is 5x stronger than steel. Patented InfraCore® technology prevents delamination, and cracking in load bearing infrastructure applications.
✓ More Sustainable - Up to 50-year structural guarantee, with a projected 100+ year lifespan and reduced transportation requirements and costs.
✓ Faster Installation – Often monolithic, we can install in one-day for dramatically accelerated completion, and significant cost savings.
✓ Proven Safe - Our bridges are engineered and manufactured to comply with all Canadian building codes.
✓ Low Maintenance
✓ Customized Design - CMSI’s composite materials give you greater flexibility to create aesthetically appealing, architecturally distinct bridge designs that complement the natural surroundings. Choose your colours, wear layers, handrails, logo applications, built-in LED lighting.
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 are stronger than steel. From engineering and design, to transportation and installation, CMSI (CMS Infrastructure) is your partner in advancing material change.
Extremely strong CMSI (CMS Infrastructure) Traffic bridges are engineered to meet every Canadian transportation building code standards. Lightweight, ultra-strong and practically maintenance-free and provide freedom of build form concepts. Various colors and specifications of wear surfaces are available.
We understand that you don't buy a bridge every day.
