  • New Concept for a Specific Ask

    EzyStrut responded to a specific ask from the market with regard to the Brisbane Airport Link Tunnel construction.

    EzyStrut’s engineering team designed a revolutionary new concept for fire-rated cable support systems to handle the cable management for the tunnel. The resulting cable ladder later became the first cable support system to comply with the AS3013:2005 standard, through passing an independent test where it was subjected to temperatures peaking at 1050°C over a 2 hour period.

    Other problems solved included EzyStrut arranging a special matte black powder coat finish to prevent unwanted light reflections that could effect drivers using the tunnel.

  • Foundations for the Future

    Since the completion of the project, the need for AS3013:2005 compliance in electrical installations has steadily grown around Australia and beyond. To address this, EzyStrut has since developed over 60 new fire rated cable tray, mesh and ladder systems for installation anywhere from commercial constructions, petrochemical facilities and mine sites.

    All designs are independently tested for AS3013:2005 conformance and load capability, and we still maintain their unique labour saving installation designs.
