Composite Fibre Technologies

SM1600 & T44 Loading Road Bridges

Wagners Composite Fibre Technologies (CFT) designs and manufactures composite road bridges for use around the world. From Australia to the United States Wagners has bridges installed in cold northern climates to tropical coastal areas. Ranging from single span light road to multi-span heavy load quarry bridges Wagners provides a durable low maintenance structure to fit virtually any transport need.

We pride ourselves on the development of a modular methodology that can be used to create a variety of sections, which can be tailored to specific requirements. Installation options allow for the prioritising cost, time and labour. Our structures are manufactured and prefabricated in Australia allowing for quick and simple installation in a quality assured setting. In addition to full prefabrication Wagners can provide members for onsite assembly or sectional replacement.

Wagners CFT's innovative product solutions comply with engineering and safety standards within Australia and around the world including the United States, United Kingdom and the European Union.

Benefits:

  • Low maintenance
  • Long life span
  • Will not rust, rot or corrode
  • Termite proof
  • Light weight
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Prefabrication and scheduled works delivery
  • Inert, environmentally stable material
  • Far more environmentally friendly than traditional materials

Wagners have developed design methodologies for composite bridges from the following standards:

  • Austroads '92
  • AS1170 - Structural design actions
  • AS5100 - Bridge Design
  • Structural design of Polymer Composites - Eurocomp design code and handbook design of composite structures differs slightly from that of traditional materials, in that the 'serviceability' criteria generally dominates the design process. Typically traditional materials are designed primarily for strength, and serviceability checks are performed. Due to the low Modulus of Elasticity of composite products (as compared to steel for example) structures are designed to meet the stiffness criteria, and as a result contain large strength reserves.

Our Experience

Wagners CFT has over 10 years of experience in, not only supplying composite fibre structures but we make our own product right here in Australia using second to none quality materials. If you don't believe us, see the projects we have done & read the comments of our customers.
