Rehabilitate marine infrastructure with BAC FutureProducts!
Future Pile is a cylindrical pile designed to be driven directly into the river or sea bed using conventional equipment.
These are an ideal replacement for timber, steel or concrete in new installations or where the deck structure can be removed.
A 1m section of the 475 FuturePile was tested in compression up to a serviceability load of 1500kN and showed no sign of damage.
Future Brace is a composite fibre bracing structure, in three engineered profiles (Solid Rectangular Section, Equal and Unequal Angle Profiles). Designed to replace ageing timber braces and manufactured with a state-of-the-art resin infusion process.
These braces are retrofitted to existing bridge and wharf structure with little to no interruption to traffic access and will last longer than timber.
Future Deck a one-piece fibre composite (FC) decking panel system.
This creates a light-weight, integral structure with much reduces installation costs and site work.
This system can accommodate both pedestrian loads of 5kPa as well as vehicles up to 6,100kgs currently, on variable support centres.
Future Jetty is a composite fibre jetty/wharf structure where the beams, cross beams and decking are made as a single, integral part using a state-of-the-art resin infusion process.
A complete jetty is retrofitted to existing abutments with little to no interruption to service and will last longer than timber.
FutureWrap is an environmental only protection and is used mainly on bew timber, steel or concrete piles to give them the longest life in service.
As a physical barrier between the pile and the elements, sea water, tidal erosion and marine borers, the solution is easier to install than other similar products available today.
