Specialist Construction Hire Firm

Tuesday, 01 May 2012

Mabey Hire Services, part of the 150-year old Mabey Group, has launched two new products designed to deliver significant time and cost savings to the construction industry.

The new Supershaft plus and TuffTrak products are exclusively available from Mabey Hire Services and have been created to meet specific demands from the sector.

Supershaft plus is the longest and strongest heavy duty brace available on today's construction market and is designed to support the ground during large excavations, particularly for the installation of tanks and foundations.

Supershaft plus allows a contractor to use fewer frames for excavation thus reducing installation time, down time and the possible charges incurred through damages, delivering a cost-effective solution and faster project completion.

Designed by Mabey engineers working on specific projects, it is already being used on a number of sites.

TuffTrak is an all-terrain heavy duty road mat that can be used in any instance where the ground is too unstable or unable to carry vehicles directly, or, where the ground needs to be protected from heavy vehicles accessing a construction site.

Designed to prevent bogged down vehicles, TuffTrak offers a solution for all temporary roadway, ground protection and access applications looking to improve site access and reduce health and safety risks on site.

A drop-in bolt system reduces installation time and site down time and the use of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material means TuffTrak can be used in areas where theft is a high risk as it cannot be sold for scrap like its aluminium counterparts. In addition, TuffTrak has inbuilt flexibility which means it can be used on undulating ground, reducing the risk of damage. The unique chevron design surface also provides ultimate grip, delivering forward traction and reducing sideways movement and slippage.

Mark Rooney, Managing Director of Mabey Hire Services, said: "Product innovation is at the heart of our business as we continuously look to expand into new product areas to provide significant time and cost savings for our clients.

"Both Supershaft plus and TuffTrak have been designed in response to demand from the industry and combine innovative technology and unique features to provide the highest levels of performance, safety and ease of use.

"In addition, our site demonstrator service ensures that clients using our new products will know how to use them correctly and safely, delivering improved efficiencies and reduced risks on site."
