There is no corrosion with a fiberglass bridge drain system. Fiberglass is inert to oil, gas, salt, ice melting solutions and many other corrosive compounds found on highway structures. Even clean outs and roadway scuppers are nonmetallic; resulting in a system that will never require replacement due to a corrosion related failure. Providing our clients with a no rust, no rot pipe is a one of our most basic guarantees.
Two people can easily carry 40' of 8" pipe with prefabricated clean out and collector assemblies, as seen in the photo above. That is a lightweight alternative compared to metallic systems which can be up to 10 times the weight of an identical fiberglass design. However, this lack of weight does not result in a compromise for strength. The material properties of fiberglass fall more closely in line with steel rather than weaker thermosplastics like PVC.
Ease of Installation
A major advantage of a fiberglass drain system lies in its prefabrication capabilities. On site deliveries can easily include preassembled joints, collectors, clean outs and even directional changes. This option saves a lot of time and energy for the contractor in the field, which will ultimately save them money. Fiberglass’ lightweight nature also limits the need for heavy machinery being used to handle the materials, bringing down installation costs even further.
Custom and specific fittings are easily fabricated by our American manufacturer. In fact they have been doing so since 1974! If you can draw it, we can build it. This includes any specialty items such as catch basins or hoppers, odd degree elbows, oval fittings, square and even rectangular components. We can also make any combination of these items to ensure the drainage system we install in as unique as the bridge it will be working for.
