SIS Delivers FRP Solution for Brisbane City Councils’ Ivory Lane Bridge


0 comments

After 12 months of material testing and certification, SIS has delivered an FRP decking product for Ivory Lane Walkway for the Brisbane City Council.   The project required unique FRP profiles which were not readily available on the market. SIS was able to overcome project challenges by manufacturing new tooling, enabling us to deliver on the specific needs of the client. This innovation demonstrates SIS' versatility and ability to adapt to the needs of our customers and their projects. With emergency vehicle loads being applied in addition to standard shared path loads, SIS started from scratch to deliver a product that was robust whilst being small enough to be retrofitted to the existing superstructure.   Brisbane City Council chose SIS' StructuralComp™ FRP SISCo-Deck over other offerings due to its high level of performance after a rigorous testing and certification process. Not only is FRP decking cost-effective for the stakeholder due to its superior design life, but it also minimises maintenance and the environmental impact that such projects may have.   Take a look at our range of FRP products here: http://www.sisau.com.au/catalogue/products/footbridges/ read more
