Since 2013 mageba's R&D team has been working hard on fulfilling the requirements issued by the European Organisation of Technical Assessment (EOTA) to obtain the ETA certificate for expansion joints made of steel.
This specification ETAG 032 defines particular tests as well as analytical proofs in order to assess the performance of expansion joints. Decades of input by experts in Europe on this document ensures the high quality and acceptance of an ETA granted on its basis.
For mageba's TENSA-GRIP Type RS, this process ended with great success:
mageba is the very first company holding an ETA according to ETAG 032 for expansion joints made of steel and therefore is currently the only supplier worldwide being able to provide such expansion joints in full accordance with ETAG 032 and being able to CE mark these joints.
