Visual Requirements Guide

Creative Pultrusions, Inc. has created a Standard Minimum Visual Requirements Guide based on ASTM D4385-19.

This guide details all known defects by description and allowable limits and is intended for all Standard Structural Profiles. The Quality Assurance Sheet for each profile will provide the requirements unique to a particular profile.

Please reference the document below and contact Michael Gassler, LEAN/ISO Manager with any questions.

Pedestrian Bridge Specification

FRP truss bridges have been standardized in an AASHTO specification since 2008.

  • For the AASHTO Prefabricated Bridge Guide Specifications for Design of FRP Pedestrian Bridges First Edition, download the pdf.
  • For bridges not needing to include the AASHTO vehicle loads, a similar specification can be used.  For the FRP Prefabricated Bridge Specification using Allowable Stress Design (ASD), download the pdf.
