Fibreglass and carbon are both powerful, lightweight composites. In construction and infrastructure, both of these materials are used to reinforce traditional materials. The complete replacement of traditional materials with composites is also possible.

Innovation

construction and infrastructure

In the field of construction and infrastructure, developments follow each other in rapid succession. We worked with a customer on a fibreglass sill, for instance, but we have also used carbon slats to reinforce structures such as bridges and viaducts.

Carbon-Strips

Fibreglass undersill

In use

The construction of prefabricated houses in particular benefits from the addition of a fibreglass undersill. These sills help to improve the insulation of the house, which makes them compliant with the Buildings Decree.

The appearance of the fibreglass sill can be made to resemble any material by means of an eccentric fleece.

BETTER BRIDGING

LARGER SPAN WIDTH

By adding carbon slats to aluminium beams, it is possible to increase the span width of a beam. The combination of the carbon and aluminium is so strong that the span rate increases by 30%!
The combination of both materials is made by sliding a carbon strip into a recess in the beam. This construction has been approved by the DIBt (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik) and we have been able to apply it for a customer.

Carbon lamellen

Carbon slats are used to increase the span of the aluminium beams. The strips slide into a recess in the beam, which increases the span rate by 30%!

Our standard composite profiles are made of carbon and fibreglass, ranging from solid bars, slats to tubes in lengths of 1,000, 2,000, 4,000 and 6,000 mm.
