Fibrwrap Nederland: Waterfront Structures

Fibrwrap Rehabilitation Systems (FRS®) are constantly used because of their technological advantages (under- and near-water applications) on a variety of waterfront structures (piers, wharfs, jetties, etc.).

Because of the extremely aggressive environment, these structures are in a condition of constant deterioration, hence they suffer from loss of strength mainly due to corrosion.

The FRS® are developed and installed to these structures in order to provide rehabilitation of corroded sections, extension of service life, seismic repairs, underwater repair of structures, cathodic protection and even enhancement for change of use (e.g. commercial to industrial loads).

The FRS® include epoxies developed for partial or underwater curing, pre-fabricated FRP jackets, grouts for the jacketing system and cathodic protection system.

The FRS® are designed to regain the capacity of corrosion damaged structures in and around waterways. Also, whether wet lay-up or pre-fabricated, they can be installed on circular, octagonal, rectangular and alternatively-shaped cross sections.

In addition to protecting structural elements and regaining their original strength, the FRS® may also be designed to increase the original capacity for change-of-use retrofit projects.

Applications

  • Rehabilitation of corroded or distressed members
  • Extension of service life
  • Seismic repairs and retrofit of structural components
  • Structural repair and strengthening near and under water
  • Corrosion protection from aggressive environments
  • Enhancement of structural capacity for increased loads
  • Pre-fabricated systems for underwater applications
  • Cathodic protection
  • Emergency repairs
  • Rehabilitation and repair of structural elements of waterfront structures such as piles, beams, slabs, walls (concrete, steel or wood)
  • Protective, pigmented epoxy coating, providing improved aesthetics and long-term durability
  • Protection of corroded reinforced concrete and steel structures
  • Preventative measures for new construction
  • Preventing of corrosive agent intrusion including oxygen and marine organisms
  • Thoroughly tested at independent laboratories
  • Cost effective
  • Extends the service life of existing structures
  • Significantly lowers the corrosion rate while confining existing members
  • Prevents the onset of corrosion when applied to new structural elements
  • Can be used on circular, square, rectangular, hexagonal, flared and alternative-shaped cross sections with odd shape and size modifications
  • Increase the member capacity for projects requiring change of use
  • Advanced technological solution for rehabilitation and repair
  • The FRS® are extensively tested and carry all required approvals
  • Preventing loss of strength due to corrosion or erosion
  • Increasing of the original capacity for change-of-use retrofit projects
