Abutment System

Acrylic/Polymer Coated (OR) Translucent Oil-Based Coated Abutments

YBC’s timber abutments are preferred as a comparable or superior foundation system to other typical material such as concrete or steel. Decero™ designed, York’s Timber Abutments combine proprietary acrylic polymers with treated timbers and piling – built to any specification or capacity – protecting it from UV rays and the environment to create a durable and long lasting timber abutment foundation system.

Foundations and Substructure Systems

Acrylic/Polymer Coated (OR) Transculent Oil-Based Coated Foundations and Substructure

Upon returning to the bridges the finish crew will prepare the bridge structures for the coatings by washing, cleaning, and sanding the bridges for the coating applications while taking appropriate environmental protection measures. The finish crew shall apply two coats of YBC’s proprietary elastomeric Acrylic/polymer coating or translucent oil-based coating (if selected) blend to all visible surfaces of the outside stringers, exposed piles caps, all piles, and bracing.

Railing System

Acrylic/Polymer Coated (OR) Translucent Oil-Based Pedestrian Hand Rails, Vehicular Guide Rails and Curbing Systems

The finish crew will use a combination of silicone and YBC’s proprietary super putty to fill all checked areas on all handrail caps, horizontal rails, vehicular horizontal guide rails and curbing.

The finish crew shall apply two coats of YBC’s proprietary elastomeric Acrylic/polymer coating blend to all visible surfaces of the hand railing systems, curbing systems. If selected, the finish crew will apply YBC’s proprietary superior translucent oil-based coating blend to all visible surfaces of the guide rail and curbing systems. Lastly, the finish crew shall apply one coat of YBC’s proprietary nano-molecule self-cleaning clear sealer to selected areas as designated by YBC.

Vehicular Deck System

Epoxy & Stone Aggregate Timber (EA) – Vehicular Wear Decking

YBC’s Vehicular Decking System utilizes up to 6” of treated timber and is surfaced with Epoxy & Aggregate to create a lasting 2 layer deck system that is AASHTO approved and skid resistant.The finish crew will prepare the deck for the coatings by washing, cleaning, and sanding the bridges for the coating applications while taking appropriate environmental protection measures.

The finish team will apply a double-layer, DOT type III epoxy coating and stone aggregate to the driving surface of the timber vehicular bridge. This system is applied over the existing deck of the bridge and provides a skid-resistant coating for vehicles, eliminating the need to repair or replace individual wear deck boards, thereby making the wear decking surface virtually maintenance free. The surface coating will naturally wear (i.e. small cracking/breaching/weathering) with exposure to the environmental elements succeeding the application however this will not compromise the integrity of the bridge or the level of protection provided by YBC’s premium protectant coating.

Pedestrian Deck System

Textured Polymer Treated Timber (TPC) – Pedestrian Decking

Texture Polymer Surfaced treated wood decking is ADA compliant, fire resistant, scuff resistant, self-cleaning, self-healing, and provides maximum UV-ray protection. The finish crew will prepare the deck for the coatings by washing, cleaning, and sanding the bridges for the coating applications while taking appropriate environmental protection measures. Before coating the deck, the finish crew will use YBC’s proprietary super putty that is compatible with the specified coatings to fill any voids, cracks and or knot holes in the deck boards.

The finish team will apply the 5-step proprietary self-healing Textured Polymer Deck Coating. This system is applied over the existing deck of the pedestrian or golf cart bridge and provides a smooth, skid and fire resistant, and maximum UV-ray protected surface.

Golf Cart Deck System

Textured Polymer Treated Timber (TPC) & Composite Runners – Golf Cart Decking

YBC’s proprietary Golf cart deck system utilizes wood or Composite runners over structural heavy timber decking, enveloped with our textured polymer surface – to give you a deck surface that will last. With composite runners, the carts are kept off the structural part of the deck to create a long wearing deck system for golf carts and small vehicles.
