"Mt Barker Steel is your number 1 Adelaide Hills Metal Fabricator..."

Metal fabrication Adelaide Hills: Mt Barker Steel is your number 1 Adelaide Hills Metal Fabricator. Our metal fabrication expertise and modern workshop means the team at Mt Barker Steel are equipped to handle any welding job, and we are happy to provide you with that much needed advice on any project.

The workshop is equipped for cutting steel using a band saw, cold saw, sheet metal guillotine, plasma cutter, oxy set and our latest toy is a cropping and hole punching machine which we use for making hundreds of cleats.

For welding we use mainly Mig welders and have an old stick welder for those cast iron jobs. Our Tig welder is used for welding the many aluminium jobs that come in. We stock welding rods and Mig wire for the handy man.

For folding and bending we have 2.4m wide sheet metal folder, a cold form bender for flat bars and a pipe bender for pipes up to 50mm. Plus a pipe threader for those plumbing jobs and can also thread rods when required.

We know for us to do a good job and to be competitive you need the right tools, so come in and have a look at our workshop located at 18 Oborn Road, Mount Barker.

What is MIG Welding?

Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), sometimes referred to by its subtypes metal inert gas (MIG) welding or metal active gas (MAG) welding, is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal(s), which heats the workpiece metal(s), causing them to melt, and join.

What is TIG Welding?

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.

Sheet Metal Fabrication

Adelaide Hills Metal Fabrication: At Mt Barker Steel we are amazed how often we are at the Guillotine and folder putting together a sheet metal job.

  • We can make Storage Boxes and bolt them to your caravan or off road camper.
  • Do you need a floor cut and made to fit your Tinny and maybe a box to store the anchor? Yes we can do that!
  • Need it all made from Aluminium? We can do that too!
  • We cut sign white to size for sign writers

Structural Steel Works

Adelaide Hills Structural Steel: Nearly all buildings have structural steel as the main internal framework to give the building strength. An architect designs the building and an engineer calculates what beams and columns are required to do the job. Quiet often a builder will give the designs to the Customer to arrange the steel work and this is when they come to Mt Barker Steel.

Things to consider when building with steel:

  1. Design: Have an architect design your structure.
  2. Engineering: Engage an engineer to calculate the structural steel and connection required for the job.
  3. Fabrication: Ask Mt Barker Steel to quote to build the steel work.
  4. Coating: The Architect will nominate if the steel is to be painted or hot dipped galvanized.
  5. Delivery: Organise how to get your steel work to the site and how it will be unloaded.
  6. Crane hire: Will a crane need to be organised to move the steel into place?
  7. Installer: Steel beams are very heavy and it is important that safety is thought when working with steel.

The staff at Mt Barker Steel can arrange the whole lot or work closely with your builder so please bring your drawings in and we can see what stage they are at and help you with the process.

Some of the projects we have done over the years include:

  1. The grand stand in the Mt Barker Basketball stadium.
  2. The Mt Barker Information bay and the Entrance statement.
  3. Lots of structural work at Cornerstone College and Mt Barker Hospital
  4. Balustrade at the Hahndorf Football Clubrooms.

At Mt Barker Steel no job is too big or too small so please contact us to discuss your structural steel needs.
