Extended service life
Hardly any maintenance
NEW: SUREbridge-Tool Software
Demolish or renovate? Send your ‘replace or renovate’ advice for outdated concrete bridges fully substantiated to government agencies with a design calculation for the SUREbridge-method. Using this tool, developed by Aice Consulting and offered by Man Machines, consultancy or engineering firms can calculate the feasibility of the SUREbridge-method within their projects.
FRP is the material for the future. Our bridge decks have InfraCore® Inside. The advantages of renovation with this patented solution: no demolition of the existing construction, more strength and stiffness of the bridge and an extremely long service life of more than 50 years, without risk of fatigue, corrosion and delamination. The bridge requires hardly any maintenance. More about sustainability
Developed in a European context
SUREbridge stands for SUstainable Refurbishment or Existing Bridges. The method has been developed in a partnership of 10 European countries, the United States and the European Commission. FiberCore Europe worked with Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), University of Pisa (Italy) and AICE Consulting S.R.L. to develop SUREbridge. (Italy).
That’s why: renovating with SUREbridge
- Renovation without demolition of existing construction
- Shorter construction time, so less inconvenience to the environment
- More strength and stiffness, so more bearing capacity
- Light in weight: saving on foundation
- Widening of the road surface possible
- Lifespan up to 100 years

Our secret? InfraCore® Inside
You can fully rely on our bridges. They are extremely strong. This thanks to our unique InfraCore® technology. We developed this technology specifically for building extremely robust panels, without internal gluing or bolted connections. The InfraCore® technology is based on the principle that there is a continuous structural connection of glass fibers between the top and bottom of the construction. This prevents delamination and ensures that our bridges retain their strength and solidity. Even after many decades. Even after 100 years.
