Cairo’s new monorail system is being built with thousands of newly developed mageba expansion joint components facilitating the movements of its elevated structures
Your bridge, building or other structure is to be protected against earthquakes by means of seismic isolation – but what solutions are available?
mageba’s newest addition to the company’s range of TENSA®POLYFLEX® flexible plug expansion joints – the “RapidCure” (type RC) alternative to the long-established “Advanced” (type PU) original – enables traffic to drive over the joint just three hours after completion of installation!
We are pleased to announce that mageba has received the new ETA for TENSA®POLYFLEX®RapidCure.
Rocker bearings and roller bearings, both of which provide linear support to a bridge superstructure while allowing rotation about one axis only, are no longer state-of-the-art bearing solutions – mageba’s new RESTON®CYLINDER bearings now offer better performance and new functionalities
The recent opening of mageba India’s new manufacturing facility in Kolkata has tripled the company’s bearing production capacity – just in time to supply 36,000 elastomeric bearings for the construction of India’s first “Bullet Train” railway line.
We are building on our initiative from last year and planting again 5,000 trees. We know that this is a small contribution in the global context, but even small efforts are important and have a positive impact on our planet. Ultimately, many small steps lead to something big that can make a difference.
Approximately 1,700 m of the top-of-the-range TENSA®POLYFLEX®Advanced plug expansion joints were installed in the Hangyong Expressway's numerous viaduct and bridge structures leading to the main Games venue.
A pilot project on one of Shanghai’s busiest city expressways has shown how our easy-to-install elastic plug-type expansion joint can be installed even faster and easier – with pre-casting of elements.
To ensure that our local partners can also provide customers with mageba quality service, a partner training was organized at the company's headquarters in Bulach in August and September of this year.
An ICSBOC 2018 conference paper describes the particular challenges that can arise in the installation of expansion joints in cable-supported bridges, and associated solutions
