POLYdeck’s GRP bridges are made in a unique way utilising aggregate, resins, glass mat and a structural foam core made from recycled plastic bottles

Each square metre of foam which goes into our planks, rails and posts uses approximately 140 recycled 500ml plastic bottles. The products are manufactured inside a special mould and emerge with a unique timber deck and also castellated finish. The products really do look like timber, but unlike timber, they won’t rot or degrade.

Typically timber footbridges will last 5-8 years, depending on whether it is hard or soft wood. Polydeck’s Polybridges will last in excess of 75 years, which means reduced need for replacement bridges, reduced cost in life and also a lower carbon footprint.



Come in a range of standard lengths and widths and loading capabilities, but bespoke bridge sizes are available.


Loading typically to 5KN per SQM UDL, but higher loadings can be achieved.

MAde from grp

Made from GRP in a thermoset process, so unlike re-cycled plastic options, our bridges will not warp in hot weather.

Environmentally friendly

Wood preservatives can be very harmful to the environment and toxic to many animals and plants, but above all else, they only work in preserving wood for a short time, resulting in further negative environmental impact when they need regular replacement.

With no leaching of contaminants and a core that contains 140 recycled 500ml plastic bottles per square metre, POLYbridge™  is great for the environment in many ways.
