Steel reinforced plastic beams (S-Beams) fromKLP® are typically used for the construction of bridges and jetties. KLP® recycled plastics last decades, it does not rot or splinter, it does not require maintenance and it contains no poisonous substances. Lankhorst combine plastic beams and steel in order to be able to achieve large spans, thus reducing the overall construction and material costs for bridges and landing stages etc.
The recycled plastic beams are produced using a unique process developed and patented by Lankhorst. Four steel reinforcement bars are integrated and encased within the plastic during the moulding process. Several diameters of steel bars are possible - depending on the application.
The most recent innovation in steel reinforced beams is our KLP®-S I Beam, a steel reinforced plastic beam in the shape of the capital letter I. The unique design of this beam requires less material and therefore the KLP®-S I Beam has a lower cost price. As the top and bottom faces of the recycled plastic beam are rectangular in shape they can be easily connected with the rest of the structure.
