Calbah’s Experience

Practical

Have you been to the Sydney Opera House? Crossed the ANZAC Bridge? Perhaps you have read signage on Melbourne’s freeways? If yes, you have benefited from Calbah’s products.

Our products are everywhere, seamlessly integrated into engineering and construction. You will find our products: 

  • deep underground (mining emergency-relief chambers)
  • deep in the sea (manifold frames for flushing and testing valuable sub-sea assets)
  • in rail yards (specialist maintenance equipment, access platforms, and locomotion servicing platforms)
  • protecting Australian workers (Calbah Safety Barrier Systems)
  • transporting your goods (open and closed offshore containers)
  • channelling your water (pipes and formwork for desalination plants in South Australia and Victoria)
  • on trains (simple jigs replacing windows) 

Creative

Our design and engineering team has been commissioned to develop and fabricate artistic scupltures. You’ll see these structures decorating freeways and corporate buildings, while our functional pieces adorn urban parklands.

Innovative

At Calbah we solve problems with innovation. Our design team is genuinely enthusiastic about finding a practical solution to your engineering problem. We’re motivated by safety, productivity, and cost savings for our customers.

When, for example, we were asked to engineer a purpose-built container in which to carry extremely delicate naval equipment, we were confident we could deliver – and did.

Our solution: a fully enclosed container with a removable aluminium roof, suitable for transportation by road, air and sea, all finished and painted to a globally recognised offshore specification.

Safety

Safety has motivated some of our most clever and innovative products. Safety is integral in everything we design and engineer: 

  • Our unique safety-rail system provides a secure barrier between people and danger (such as machines, construction zones or maintenance pits) but allows controlled access for maintenance by authorised staff
  • We have purpose-built jigs and machines for the rail, mining and offshore industries, for example, our safety emergency relief chamber for the mining industry. These chambers accommodate from 4 to 20 staff. 

You can relax knowing that when it is Calbah-made, safety is our first consideration.
