Case Study – Dubai Desert Golf Club – SIS FiberCore FRP Bridges

When the time came for the developers and designers of the brand new Dubai Desert Golf Club to select and specify the required bridges, they made the best choice currently available in the world today. Our maintenance-free, clear span single element FRP bridges offer an excellent alternative to traditional offerings such timber, steel or concrete. The reduced weight of our structures also limits the costs associated with transport and lifting and also presents cost savings in abutments and civil works.


It is no wonder that some of the 700 SIS FiberCore FRP bridges installed worldwide find themselves located on some of the top courses in the world, such as the Dubai Desert Golf Club.
