Trilab To Open New Brisbane Laboratory

Trilab is proud to announce that the company will relocate its Brisbane laboratory to a purpose designed facility spanning over 1,450 m2 effective from Monday 19 September 2011.

The new Brisbane laboratory will significantly increase the output and delivery of the company’s full suite of soil and rock mechanics testing (including Triaxial strength, rock UCS, direct shear strength and consolidation tests), and calibration services.  Trilab’s NATA accreditation is not impacted by the relocation to:

346A Bilsen Road

Geebung   QLD    4034

Ph (07) 3265 5656

The relocation to a facility that is around twice the size of the company’s existing Brisbane facility has also enabled the acquisition of the following high-end soil and rock testing equipment:

  • Eight additional 3,500 kPa rated cells and load units, which takes Trilab’s total capacity to 30 Triaxial frames with associated equipment.
  • Four additional Direct Shears Machines which takes Trilab’s total capacity to 10.
  • A pressure control unit to regulate pressures within the company’s Hoek-Triaxial cells to improve high pressure testing accuracy.
  • Five rock compression machines up to 3000kN.

“We have been planning this laboratory move for some months, and along with the new equipment acquisitions, significantly increases our ability to service our client’s demand for quality testing.” said Gavin Hamilton, Chairman of Trilab.
