Gfrp Rebar: An Ideal Solution For Marine Structures

What is Marine Structure?

marine structure

A Marine structure is an artificial building or construction built in or near water like an ocean, sea, lake, river, etc. The marine structure serves a variety of things like coastal protection, navigation, fishing, recreation, energy production, etc.

  • Docks: we make docks to provide access to boats and ships for specific activities like transferring goods from one vessel to another. 
  • Seawalls and breakwaters: These structures are built to protect coastlines from the erosive forces of waves and currents.
  • Lighthouse: Lighthouse helps with the navigation of shipping. 
  • Dams: The purpose of a dam is to impound the water for various reasons like human water supply, flood control, energy generation, etc.
  • Artificial islands: Artificial islands are structures we can build on the ocean.

Maine structures are often subject to harsh environmental conditions such as strong winds, waves, currents, and salt waters.

Advantages of Marine structure

  • Coastal erosion: Marine structure protects coastal communities and infrastructures from damaging effects from waves and storms.
  • Ports and harbours: Marine structure provides sage and efficient access to ports and harbours for ships.
  • Increase Food Production: Marine structures such as fish farms and oyster reefs can increase food production and support the fish industries.
  • Economic Development: Marine structure provides the trade with international clients using sea roots.
  • Water treatment and desalination
  • Underwater mining, oil and gas exploration.
  • Underwater communication and power transmission

 Overall, the marine structure has multi-dimensional benefits for society, the economy and development.

GFRP Rebar For Marine Structure

GFRP Rebar marine structure

Glass fibre-reinforced plastic (GFRP Rebar) has compelling mechanical and physical properties. GFRP Rebar is particularly suitable for marine construction or structure in harsh environments such as coastal regions, docks, piers, and seawalls due to its resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand harsh marine environments. 

One of the main reasons we use GFRP Rebar or Fiberglass Rebar is as an alternative to conventional steel bars, which are not corrosion resistant. GFRP Rebar increases the life span of marine structures. GFRP rebar does not react to chemical products, salt, and alkali.

Advantages Of GFRP Rebar For Marine Structure

  • Lightweight: GFRP Rebar is a lighter material than steel bars. It makes it easy for the construction and transportation of materials.
  • Strength: GFRP Rebar is two times stronger than steel reinforcement bars. It increases the strength of buildings.
  • Easy to install: You can cut and bend as per requirement, so it is easy to install.
  • Durable: GFRP Rebar is a highly durable material. It increases the life span of construction and decreases the construction cost and maintenance costs.
  • Cost-effective: GFRP Rebar is a cost-effective material. It requires less maintenance expense than steel bars.
  • Corrosion Resistant: As we have seen above, GFRP rebar is corrosion-resistant. GFRP Rebar is an excellent choice for marine structures.
