Project Scope

Manufacture and delivery of Multi-Plate Arch Type HA for conveyor Overpass

Project Notes

  • Multi-Plate Arch Type HA (Galvanised, 5mm sheet thickness) Hot Dip Galvanised steel finish
  • 23.7m long, 4.9m span x 3.7m high arch
  • Skew & Bevel cut ends to suit conveyor gradient
  • The arch end treatment comprised a concrete ring beam
  • These structures are designed in accordance with AS 5100 and AS/NZS2041:1998
  • This arch was manufactured in Townsville and delivered within the required delivery schedule

Australian Construction Products (ACP) worked closely with the stakeholders, Nepean Conveyors and the consultants, Lindsay & Dynan. Project urgency required a prompt response to come up with a solution to the awkward challenge of the steep decline and the conveyor skew alignment.

The un-usual heavy Quad-Quad B Live Load was a key design feature and therefore Multi-Plate was specified as it can easily accommodate high loads.

Daracon Group had a tight lead time for design and supply that was 100% completed in 6 weeks.

Multi-Plate offers distinct advantages including: high strength to weight ratio / a wide range of shapes and sizes / easy handling and shipping / economical / can be pre-assembled or assembled on site.

Merger of Australian Construction Products and Safe Direction

We are delighted to announce the merger of Safe Direction Pty Ltd and Australian Construction Products Pty Ltd (ACP).
On 1 May 2023 Jaybro, Australia’s leading supplier to the civil construction and infrastructure sector, and owner of ACP, purchased 100% of the share capital of Safe Direction. Under Jaybro’s ownership the two businesses will be merged to form Australia’s preeminent company manufacturing and supplying vehicle barrier systems.

A compelling motivation for the merger is the value created for our customers from combining the collective resources and knowledge of the two companies. Notably there will be significant broadening of the product range and enhancement to distribution reach and capacity. There will be transitionary steps as the two businesses assemble under the one entity, Safe Direction. Part of this transition includes the consolidation of the products and services offered by the merged business into a single web domain

We trust that this merger will provide increased value to you and we look forward to the opportunity to be of assistance.
