York Timber Protective Systems™


Offered as KEY COMPONENT of  York Bridge Services™, York Timber Protective Systems™  are a standard for York Bridges™ and are recommended on ALL timber bridges to ensure their longevity, low bridge maintenance, beauty and integrity:

  • UV-resistant Coating (oil or acrylic-based) — slows down the breakdown of the wood by UV rays and moisture, has an approximate lifespan of 2-3 years on horizontal surfaces; 4-8 on vertical surfaces
  • Textured Polymer Deck Coating — provides a textured surface that protects against UV rays and moisture and wears well with pedestrian and golf cart use; slip-resistant, fire-resistant and has an approximate lifespan of up to a decade
  • Epoxy & Stone Aggregate Application — supplies a superior traction coating and protection for the traffic deck that will last up to a decade, with vehicular use
  • Composite Runners — creates a path for golf carts to drive on/follow, increasing the longevity of the bridge by protecting the deck of the bridge from wear and tear; lasts approximately 15-25 years with golf cart traffic


“As promised, a few months after the completed installation, we were contacted about the installation of your Timber Protective Systems . Again, the installation of this preventative system was done as professionally as the original bridge installation. I believe this system will definitely extend the life of the bridge’s Investment Protection.”
