Strongwell’s Composites Connect Mountains to Sea

April 24 2017

Strongwell’s composites are used in the Mountains to the Sea Trail. The Friends of the North Carolina Mountains to Sea Trail (nonprofit organization) secured monies to build a pedestrian bridge to guarantee safe passage to all hikers for decades to come in the Mountains to the Sea Trail.

The design implemented was a four foot wide by eighty feet in length pedestrian bridge constructed with 8” channels and 2” x 2” tubes as structural members. An EXTREN 500 series resin was utilized due to its UV inhibitors, resistance to rot and corrosion.

Lightweight FRP has a high strength to weigh ratio; therefore, a transport helicopter was used to lift piece-marked components from a dropship site to the junction in the mountains. Holes were also prefabricated so that installers could easily assemble the structure on-site. As a pedestrian walking surface was also needed, SAFDECK FRP decking was coated with a high quality epoxy grit applied by Strongwell’s fabrication team prior to delivery.
