"The ability to develop solutions for these activities is a constant challenge, demanding innovation, understanding and often inspirational concepts."

The Construction & Civil Engineering Industry functions on an international stage demanding increasingly sophisticated materials and products to achieve better results in challenging environments and applications.

The scope of projects undertaken within this demanding industrial sector can range from refurbishment of buildings and entire environments through to construction of super highways, power plants or turnkey facilities. The ability to develop solutions for these activities is a constant challenge, demanding innovation, understanding and often inspirational concepts.

MacLellan Rubber has worked within this industrial sector for many decades and has developed a wide portfolio of materials and products to meet the increasingly demanding applications that our clients need to be able to meet client expectations. Our ability to work with partners to design solutions at the limits of current technology and sometimes beyond is widely recognised by our clients, as is our aptitude to manufacture and deliver within defined, and sometimes critically short, lead times.

MacLellan has sought to ensure its materials and products are maintained at the leading edge of both capabilities and technical standards. We monitor and engage with appropriate bodies that set new standards for products across Europe and warrant that our products conform through both constant internal assessment and independent certification. We work with clients in design and development as well on site to develop workable solutions and create in house standards and specifications.

Our Bridge Bearings Pads and Strip, designed to accommodate high load and movement in road and bridge construction are to the latest BS EN 1337-3 standard. We also offer Steel Reinforced Bridge Bearing Pads for high load and movement applications in road and structural installations but also for vibration isolation and weight distribution of high loads such as transformers during transportation.

MacMount Transformer Isolation Pads are designed to deliver noise reduction and vibration dampening for transformer installations, as well as chemical resistance to aggressive transformer oils, with weights from seventy tonnes to hundreds and in some case over one thousand tonnes. The pads were originally developed for the Central Electricity Generating Board to meet BEBS-T2 (1966) Section XIII and providing 40dB dynamic attenuation at 100 Hz this product is now used all over the world with installations on every continent and is recognised for its exceptional performance and its ease of installation.

Pipeline installations are a large part of many construction projects and MacLellan have European manufactured, class leading materials approved to the latest standards for use as Pipeline Gaskets, Pipeline Support Clamps, and Hygienic Seals. Our materials are used in performance critical environments such as chemical processing, refineries, subsea, food and drink processing and pharmaceutical. Our approvals for Drinking Water applications are amongst some of the best in Europe with individual materials certified to WRAS, KTW, W270, ACS, and Belgaqua and we have developed a Pan European compound that enables our clients supplying products across Europe to have one material rather than many.

Complementing our Pipeline sealing products are our Link Seal Modular Seals, Compakt Seals and Sealing Plugs for effectively sealing voids around any form of pipework against the surrounding structure. These products are cleverly designed to deliver and secure, long-lasting, pressure-tight seal for water, gas and sewer pipes of any size passing through walls, ceilings and floors in almost any environment. Whilst standard sizings up to 1.22mtr (48) diameter are referenced the modular system can be adjusted to accommodate almost any diameter.

Our materials are used in a wide range of lower technology but no less critical areas such as Fire Stopping, Noise Absorption and Concrete Forming.
