Moddex is pleased to showcase one of the first Victorian projects to feature the Ezibilt™ Pre-Engineered Ramp, Deck & Stair Solution. 

Project Overview

Seeking a turnkey modular access ramp for one of their Victoria Branch Office Buildings, Ausco Modular engaged Moddex after learning about Ezibilt – one of Moddex’s latest pre-engineered innovations.

If you haven’t heard about this new product, Ezibilt™ is our modular ramp, stair and deck system comprising pre-engineered modules. Equipped with adjustable platform heights and the ability to arrange each ramp, step or deck component in various configurations on level and sloping site terrains of 26° to 45° degrees.

For this project, Ausco opted for an Ezibilt ramp comprising four modules paired with Assistrail® Disability Handrails for turnkey compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and every building classification within the National Construction Code (NCC).

Ausco were eager to have a seamless transition between the deck and the ramp, so they completed their deck with Moddex’s modwood to achieve uniformity in the transition. This engineered timber-look board is slip-rated and fire-rated for all building applications. 

So impressed by the turnkey modularity of this pre-engineered system, Ausco has confidently voiced that they will use the Ezibilt system for their own temporary building hire deployments.

Why was Moddex Chosen?

As described by Ausco’s Modular Operations Manager, Moddex was selected for our long-term track record and partnership with Ausco. Looking for a modular solution for their accessibility problem, Ezibilt also served as a successful trial and test run for their intention to use this modular system for future temporary building hire offerings.

Based on the client’s requirements and the site assessment, Moddex developed a comprehensive design proposal. This included detailed plans, drawings, and 3D visualisations to understand the final installation clearly.

Once the design was finalised and approved by Ausco Modular, Moddex supplied and installed the prefabricated modular ramp system. For this project, it only took two of Moddex’s installation team members 12 working hours to complete the entire project.

No-fuss Moddex Handrail Compatibility 

When you choose Moddex, you are getting systems where everything fits – from the ramp to the stairs, deck transition to the cladding and handrails; you are getting a system that is designed, tested and trialled for speed, compliance, and safety. 

Moddex Ezibilt eliminates the uncertainty and misfits of specifying and installing products sourced from different suppliers compared to traditional ramp and handrail systems. For example, a safety handrail from one supplier may not be compatible or compliant to fit a ramp from a different supplier.

Safety & Compliance

For this project, the Regulation 126. Certificate of Compliance was supplied by Moddex.

As with all Moddex products, the Ezibilt™ Pre-Engineered Ramp, Deck & Stair Solution is engineered to meet all necessary safety standards, including those specified by the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards (AS 1657).

More About Ezibilt™ Pre-Engineered Ramp, Deck & Stair Solution. 

Ezibilt replaces custom-built, traditionally constructed accessibility, typically a time-consuming and elaborate process involving site measurement, design, ordering, manufacturing, delivery installation and compliance approval.

Ideal for projects that require fast-racked installation to meet short timeframes. Ezibilt is a surefire solution for clients seeking absolute efficiency in the construction process for building accessibility, one that aligns with the benefits of quick modular building installation and doesn’t cause delays to the overall project. 

Ezibilt is accompanied by comprehensive BIM content library access. Architects, engineers, and designers can streamline their design processes by accessing pre-engineered components, precise measurements and material specifications directly within their design software with just a few clicks.
