mageba Australia are specialists in the design and manufacture of high-end structural bearings and expansion joints, as well as seismic protection and structural health monitoring systems.
Part of the Swiss-owned, international market leading mageba Group, we are renowned for investing in innovation, technical excellence and high-quality engineering solutions.
At mageba Australia, we’re not interested in offering a catalogue of ‘one-size-fits-all’ products. As a company run by engineers, for engineers, we understand the problems facing engineers today...and we know how to solve them.
One of the most common problems experienced by engineers in the Australian and New Zealand market is the disconnect between original design models and the structural bearings and expansion joints available.
Final design dimensions are often subject to confirmation from the manufacturer, allowing contractors and suppliers to present a selection of ready-made bearing and expansion joint options that are not tailored to the design and the nuanced aspects of the project.
This way of working leads to a range of issues. Opportunistic merchant suppliers can (and often do) provide cheap and inferior solutions that do not meet Australian standards and greatly reduce the life expectancy of the structure. As manufacturers' warranties are often not assignable to contractors, this creates a great deal of commercial risk when comparing and choosing a contractor.
Add the time and resources that are wasted in reworking design models to suit standardised products - increased workloads for designers means increased costs for owners - and you have a problematic process.
At mageba Australia, we work in reverse.
With a local design team of engineering experts, we ask more questions...we want to find out the exact problems, technical details and needs of your project in the initial design phase. We are not interested in selling a standard catalogue product that requires you to change and resize your design or structure.
We work with you throughout the process to find a solution that meets your technical specifications and project needs. We present customised structural bearings and expansion joints that are designed and manufactured specifically for your design model.
By changing this simple step in the process we eliminate potential problems before they arise. Contractors tendering on the project know exactly what they need to supply and quote, the design is already in its final stages and the ‘heavy lifting’ has already been completed.
All mageba solutions are engineered such that installation is risk free for construction teams and site based activities are minimised. Installation of mageba products is as simple as unload, secure, pour, a three-step process that saves thousands of dollars in installation costs and, more importantly, is safer and quicker than other low technology products available.
