From the DeskFrequently asked questions about thermal insulation

Q: Is there a minimum quality/performance standard that insulation material should comply with that a consumer should check before purchasing? Is this the same for all types of insulation and applications (eg, walls and/or ceilings)? In other words are all R-Value claims by suppliers equal?

A: All insulation materials have to be tested to the relevant SABS standards pertaining to the specific products. Products need to be in compliance with the requirements of the relevant Standard to be “acceptable” for usage.

The performance requirements are different for different products. One might use for an example; a polystyrene insulation which would have a dif-ferent thermal performance requirement for a wall than for a ceiling (refer SANS 204).

R-value claims quoted by suppliers are different for different materials. SANS 204 gives a clear guidance to the thermal performance requirements for roofs and ceilings in the different climatic zones of South Africa (refer to table “Typical deemed-to-satisfy thicknesses of generic insulation products” in SANS 204, also on our website).

Q: How big is the South African industry – many role players or a few only? Is there a ‘list’ of sup-pliers should we want to engage with the industry to structure a promotional campaign or is there an appropriate forum to channel this through eg, TIASA?

A: We would obviously prefer to use TIASA as the appropriate forum as we represent the major-ity of the insulation manufacturers, contractors, suppliers and distributors in the country and have a membership list which would make it easier to assist Eskom.

Q: Who typically does installation – primarily the homeowner/DIY after purchasing from a DIY store or is it mainly installed by the supplier or a combination of these approaches?

A: Unfortunately the installation of roof insulation in South Africa has been neglected and/or ignored but generally insulation is installed by the Roofing Contractors, TIASA Specialized Contractors or the DIY market. This will now obviously change with the introduction of the legislation.

Q: Are there quality concerns? (For example, with the promotion of Compact Fluorescent Lamps it was found that several cheap, but low quality lamps where being imported and sold) and if so, is there a way to avoid promotion of inferior products eg, ‘consumer’s are recommended to purchase only SABS approved products’ or something to that effect?

A: There is a flood of insulation materials entering our country, especially those “cheap imported” ones. We would definitely recommend products that have been tested and approved in accordance with the relevant South African National Standard (SANS). It does not matter if it has been “tested” overseas, it might not comply with our National Building Regulation requirements with regards to health and safety. In South Africa thermal insulation is also applied internally whereas in Europe it is externally. It is therefore safer to evaluate products through our Association to determine whether it is suitable or not.

Often products “tested overseas” fail our local fire safety requirements. It might have good thermal properties but could be a fire hazard. Safety always comes first.

The statement “SABS Approved” is also very misleading as only products that have the SABS Mark of Approval are considered to be “SABS Ap-proved”. However, this does not mean that one cannot use any other insulation products on the market that has also been tested in accordance with the relevant South African National Standard and are in compliance with the requirements of the standard. Often statements are made that products have been SABS tested, but that on its own is not enough. Test Reports should always be available for inspection to proof compliance.

Q: Are there installation quality considerations/concerns? Is this regulated in any way – are there

Page 4: Arch: May/Jun 2010

4 Architect & Specificator May/June 2010

recommended installers for instance? What should a homeowner look out for when doing his own installation or when an installation is being done/selecting an installer?

A: A BIG YES! Insulation materials incorrectly installed will not achieve the required thermal performance.

TIASA has taken the initiative to start a “Specialist Contractors Division” to ensure that contractors are familiar with the installation procedures of the various products and requirements in accordance with the new National Building Regulations. Our Manufacturers are actively involved with this initiative as it is a wonderful opportunity to cre-ate new employment opportunities as “unskilled” labour can also be trained.

We would obviously recommend TIASA approved installers and then of course there is the DIY market as well. The DIY installers will unfortunately not be able to submit a “Conformance Certificate” after installation. Only accredited installers will be able to submit such a certificate to the owner of the building.

Q: Is there a limited life expectancy (I saw the product loses efficiency after time, but that this was considered in the recommended R values) – does this differ from product to product or is this prescribed by any standard? Should homeowners therefore consider replacement after time?

A: In accordance with the Application of the National Building Regulations “any material used in the erection of a building shall be of a quality adequate for the purpose for which it is to be used. The requirements shall be deemed to be satis-fied if such material complies with the standard prescribed for it in the relevant standard specifi-cation. The life span of replaceable components and materials, such as claddings, roof materials etc, shall not be less than 15 years”.

“Aging” of certain insulation material properties are adversely affected but has been taken into consideration when establishing the performance parameters, ie, R-Values in accordance with SANS 204.

It should not be necessary to replace the insula-tion if it complies with the relevant SABS standard and installed in accordance with the installation specifications of the Manufacturer.

When “Architect & Specificator” chats to Lionel Mansfield, MD and Clinton Bunch, sales director, at GHI, they’re enthusiastic about the new range.

“Taurus is a world-class range of floor springs, door closers, locks and handles,” explains Clinton, by

way of introduction. “As a company that has become aligned with some of the world’s most prestigious brands within this industry including Securistyle from the UK and Olivé Quimica from Spain, this fits perfectly into our existing offering.”

Impressive productionLionel adds his vote of confidence, describing the Taurus production facilities. “It’s one of the most impressive factories I’ve ever seen,” he tells us. “It produces over 40 000 floor springs a month to very tight specifications at exceptionally high quality levels. “

The range available in South Africa will be expanding to include stainless steel pull handles in addition to the spring-loaded, narrow-style handle that is currently available.

On top of trendsGracehaven is no stranger to staying on top of trends and Clinton adds that they’re moving increasingly into frameless fixtures and fittings, such as those found in shopfronts, shower cubicles, balustrades and internal doors.

With 30 years under its belt, GHI has become known as a quality aluminium hardware special-ist, but Lionel emphasises that the company has a firm foothold in numerous other areas of the industry. “Apart from toughened glass hardware, we’re also big players in the silicone sealant field, and even in wooden window and door hardware,” he interjects.

Structural siliconeThe structural silicone sphere has certainly seen major input from the company, with a number of landmark projects incorporating the material in the form of the Olivé Quimica range from Spain. “We have a number of clients who are strong supporters of this product,” says Clinton.

“Ronnie Mazor, of Mazor in Cape Town, has used Olivé SG-71 in projects such as the Cape Town Stadium and Mandela Rhodes House.” The ma-terial has also been used in the Teatro at Monte Casino.

Olive 933 was used on the ‘Calabash’ at Soccer City. “The sealant was used in the upper arc of the curve of the structure,” continues Clinton. “It was originally meant to be gasket glazed, but the subcontractor, Burger Emonyeni, had used Olivé before and preferred it.”

Back on the topic of the Taurus line, Lionel concludes that while GHI is the direct importer of the range it will also be available from other distributors to facilitate access to market. “This is an international-class product,” he ends off. “The floorsprings have a 500 000 cycle guarantee, locks have a 5-year guarantee and products are made from AISI 304 grade stainless steel. They truly are equal to anything available worldwide.”

You also need talent, business skills and guts

Lameck Garonga, however, takes his guidance from a somewhat higher place. “God is my inspiration,” he smiles, during an interview with “Architect & Specificator”. He is, after

all, the ultimate architect.

A man of strong religious convictions, Lameck cut his teeth in various architectural firms before deciding that starting his own firm would allow more freedom to express his individual style, and, more importantly, devote time to his religious pursuits.

Getting out there“I was with Rabana until 2007, and then joined Muhle Unlimited Designs until 2009, when I took the brave step to start my own company. The in-spiration came from my need to develop my own architectural style and concepts,” he explains. “Every firm has its own style; Rabana was quite conservative, while Muhle was younger and more fast-paced.

Less But More

“I had both aspects within me and wanted to define myself, handling my own scheduling and financial planning. But these skills are not enough to start a firm. You also need talent, business skills and guts,” he emphasises.

With two degrees under his belt, Lameck is well aware of the value of education. “I studied at the architectural school in Zimbabwe; we were pioneers at the institution,” he tells us, chuckling as he adds: “I’m a Mozambiquen who studied in Zim and practices in South Africa. In a way, I owe each a debt of gratitude.”

Embracing minimalismIn spite of his spiritual leaning, Lameck has a steadfastly pragmatic approach to business. His

Every architect takes inspiration from some source, whether

it’s the environment, a mentor or the classic works of a

previous designer.

young firm, LBM (Less But More), expresses a design ethic based on the style of Mies van der Rohe, embrac-ing minimalism and simplic-ity, with a strong focus on solid architectural principles laced with spirituality.

“For a new company, mar-keting is vital,” says Lameck. “Referrals are the best way to do this, but we need to gather the work experience first which we allocate a lot of budget to putting propos-

als together to generate work. It’s the only way we can compete with the big firms which have estab-lished reputations.”

With a portfolio that shows a strong background in gov-ernment-based projects and in support of government’s initiatives regarding service delivery for marginalised communities, LBM’s leaning towards healthcare is beginning to emerge. “We’ve worked on a number of health-oriented facilities,” he continues, and are currently completing a sub-stance abuse centre in Cullinan.”

Although some might feel that the firm’s minimal-ist style is not suited to providing a warm healing environment, Lameck assures us that simple de-sign, coupled with clever use of light and colour

Big approach“Although small, we’re a firm with a big approach,” Lameck smiles as he continues. “Renovations or new buildings are fine but we’d really like to get involved in some ground-breaking projects.”

In association with contracting firm, Marsh-Lapp Investments, LMB has already come up with some pretty innovative concepts for new projects, the flagship being Mash-Lap’s own new Contractor’s Building in Soweto. Designed to rival any office block in Sandton, the building forms part of the Soweto renewal project. Lameck has plenty more ideas for this area.

One proposal takes the old Uncle Charlie restau-rant, a dilapidated building in the interchange near Southgate, and converts it into a 16-storey structure incorporating hotel and restaurants. “The area around Gold Reef City is the last big node in terms of development in the South,” explains Lameck.

“Development in the North is rampant and we’d like to see this trend take off in the South. Many of our proposals are based on providing develop-ers with ideas on how to invest successfully in the area. We’re also costing projects in order to submit them for funding so that we can follow them through ourselves.”

Youthful energyAt just 31, some might think that Lameck’s opti-mism in the face of challenging projects is due to youthful naivete, but he laughs this off. “According to SACAP figures, there are only 98 self-employed young architects in South Africa, and I’m proud to be one of them. If I have youthful energy on my side, then I’ll take advantage of it – we’ll need all the help we can get in order to establish our name, particularly since it’s ultimately my dream to have offices in South Africa, Maputo and Zim.

“Our work will have to speak for itself, so we’ll

TemperamentsHowever, it was not just a matter of putting up poles and affixing bright lights on top like you would for any other sports arena. Race horses are a breed of their own and apart from costing an arm and a leg, they’re highly strung, so they don’t take kindly to anything unusual which may distract them from their sprint down the turf. “Ap-

parently a horse will simply stop running if one of the lights happens to catch its eye head-on,” says Mark Malherbe, technical director of Prosound, the company responsible for installing the specially designed lighting systems.

“Architect & Specificator” had first-hand experience of race-horses tetchiness when we visited Turffontein to take photos of the unique aluminium structures being erected to bear the lights. We were told to walk 500 metres down the straight and to hurry it up as some of the 800 horses housed at Turf-fontein, were soon coming out to practice and then no movement of people whatsoever is allowed along

the track as it will upset them.

Constraints“We had to be very patient with the installation,” says Mark. “Apart from covering the bottom part of the structure with Hessian to ‘hide’ it from the horses, our teams had to leave the area ev-ery morning and every afternoon while the horses came out on the track to exercise. We weren’t even allowed to put banne r t ape around the con-struction areas as we usually do.

Night Racing Comes to SAIf you Google horse racing events like the Durban July and the J&B Met, there is more about fashion than the actual

racing. With night racing coming to South Africa, will we be looking at fabulous pyjama parties? Fact of the matter is, horse racing at night is here. Turffontein racecourse is the first venue to present such an event. The race course has

been buzzing with activity as special lighting towers provide enough light for the TV cameras and night-time race-goers.

The uprights going up on the straight

“Obviously the usual system of supporting light-poles with cables anchored to the ground would not do as they could cause damage to a very expensive horse if they happened to break loose. So we came up with a whole new concept in terms of a stand-alone lighting structure” explains Mark. “The other criterion was that the structures should not obscure the view of television cameras covering racing events.”

AluminiumOne of Prosound’s main lines of business is provid-ing and erecting the temporary structures for the staging of rock concerts, theatre lighting grids and other outdoor events. At the core of these structures are aluminium trusses designed and manufactured by Dutch company Prolyte Products. Confronted with the Turffontein requirements, Mark called on the expertise of Paul Erik Haseloop and Ivo Mulder of Prolyte to see if they could help.

“We had never done anything like this, but Ivo, our senior engineer immediately had some idea of how we could utilise our truss design experience to come up with something sturdy enough as a stand-alone structure,” says Paul Erik, worldwide sales director. “Armed with some basic ideas, we flew out to South Africa to study the requirements together with Mark and then went back to the drawing board.”

The design“All our trusses are made in-house in Holland where we have the expertise and necessary spe-cial fabrication equipment. But if we had to make this whole structure out of aluminium, the cost of the material and shipping it out here would have been prohibitive,” adds Ivo. “As stresses in a 22 metre high structure tend to be in the lower part, we designed the first nine metres as a steel truss

Paul Erik Haseloop (right) and Ivo Mulder of Prolyte at the first structure erected

that could be made in South Africa.

“The rest of the tower was then specially made out of 6082T6 aluminium which tapered down in sections to reduce the amount of material re-quired, the higher we went. A twenty-two metre truss across the two towers then completes the

goal post structure which is securely bolted onto a concrete foundation of four metres by two metres with just the plinth sticking out. Before finally specifying material thicknesses and lengths of the section, we had to take the prevailing wind pressures at Turffontein into account to make sure the structure wouldn’t sway too much in windy conditions,” says Paul.

Safety“When Ivo finished this design, we had it audited and reviewed by an independent third party standards organisation in Germany before submitting it to the client in South Africa,” says Paul Erik. “It being

a unique design, a first for Africa and as far as I know also a world first, we are more than satisfied with the outcome now that the first structure has been put up. We now have a new product line to add to our portfolio and the first application that comes to mind is camel racing at night in Dakar,


for instance. This system would also work perfectly for night-time tennis matches.”

Judging by Ivo’s ruddy glow, he’s clearly had a lot of South African sun shining on his pale European skin as he checks out the Prosound crew install-ing along the track. His glow is heightened due to his excitement about this world-first. “Today was fairly windy and I was pleasantly surprised how little it affected the structure while we were fitting the cross beam truss,” he says with a broad smile before we dash off the track so that the horses won’t spot us and start going wild.

Dr Chris Mulder, founder and CEO of the design and architectural firm CMAI, is the pioneer of the concept of farm living which combines residential development with agriculture in a rural environment

A R3,4 bn farm village lifestyle project planned next to the Van Staden’s River gorge has received the go-ahead from the Department of Economic Affairs,

Environment and Tourism of the Eastern Cape who has approved the plans without any preconditions. It earlier received the blessing from the national department of agriculture.

A delighted Dr Chris Mulder, one of the main shareholders and originator of this concept says Crossways Farm Village, as the new develop-ment will be known, will be the first of its kind

in South Africa to be built to this scale. His urban design and architectural firm CMAI is responsible for the design, planning and implementation of the project.

Chris, who gained international prominence with his Thesen Islands development in Knysna, has just returned from the US where he found enthu-

In the US there is growing support for the concept of rural living in an agricultural environment. The slogan ‘Agricul-ture is the new golf’ has been taken up enthusiastically by

people in all walks of life concerned about the environment. There is in particular an increasing awareness of the impor-tance for the future of safe access to food and water, and of

the need to live with the land in a sustainable manner.

The concept of Crossways is that of a typical village of yesteryear in a modern idiom. At the centre of the village will be a town square which will also be the centre of activity for residents and visitors

It will have its own mini-municipality that will provide all essential services

siastic acceptance of his concept of farm living. He was invited to present a lecture on interdisci-plinary cooperation at the Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture, Urban Design and Land Development, where he obtained a doctorate in environmental planning and urban design in 1980. The College of Architecture, the largest academic institution of its kind in the US, presented him with its Outstanding Alumnus Award in 2002.

Mini-municipalityCrossways Farm Village, which forms part of an existing dairy enterprise, will comprise some 780 residential units designed to accommodate virtually the full income and housing spectrum. In support will be extensive sporting and other outdoor recreational facilities. The development will also include light “cottage” industries with related retail, commercial and office components. Run by the future homeowners’ association, it will have its own mini-municipality that will provide all essential services, from electricity and water to refuse removal and sanitation.

The size of the present dairy operation will be extended to almost 170 ha of the total property of some 560 ha with new pastures being estab-lished and a state-of-the-art milking parlour built to accommodate the enlarged herd of about 500 Holstein stud cows.

Your own cowCommenting on the slogan “agriculture is the new golf”, Chris said in the United States a great many golf estates have run into financial difficulties due to high maintenance costs. “Research has shown that 83% of people living on golf estates don’t

play golf. They bought there because of the life-style. Crossways will offer a similar lifestyle with the added advantage that the farming operation will not be an expense, but a source of income for residents.

Fresh vegThe accent for the planned development will be on rural living. “The property adjoins the Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve and large tracts of land will consist of rehabilitated indigenous vegeta-tion crisscrossed by walking trails. Fresh fruit and vegetables produced on the farm will be available to residents as well as an extensive range of dairy products, to promote a healthy lifestyle.

“Although rural living is the motto, the development will be underpinned by the latest wireless and fibre optic technology for communication, security and other services.

E llis Park stadium in Johannesburg, however, no longer has this problem. An infrared heating system has been fitted to raise the comfort level for spectators in the grandstand

areas. This radiant heating system was installed by Eastleigh, a combustion engineering specialist company in Benoni who are the sole agents for GoGaS heating products from Germany. “Architect & Specificator” speaks to Fritz von Graszouw about this new technology.

Thermic comfort“Due to the high efficiency rate of infrared systems, a high level of thermal comfort is achieved, even at low outdoor temperatures,” Fritz elaborates. “The effect can be compared with solar radiation in winter where even in low temperatures, you feel comfortable.

“Our high efficiency radiators emit infrared radia-tion which transforms into heat once it hits a solid surface. As spectators are in the stadium only for a short stay, the heat must be available at once which

is exactly what this system does. Instant heat, just like when a light is switched on.”

FuelsEllis Park utilises natural gas from the Egoli gas line, but the system can also be run off gas bottles. “In the not too distant future, it will also be possible to

run off natural gas from a virtual gas pipeline supply system where gas is stored in large special containers called Mats,” says Fritz.

Mats are currently being introduced to the South African market system-atically for a variety of applications, including vehicles that have been converted to run on compressed natural gas.

Operation“The system is switched on remotely simply by flicking an electric switch,” says Fritz. “The temperature is controlled by a sensor aimed at the actual flame and it will adjust the flame lower or higher to radiate a constant pre-set temperature. The gas burner is fitted with a pilot burner ignition device and detection system as opposed to the standard system usually used on gas burners.

Turning Up the HeatFans of winter sports like rugby and soccer know they have to brave the cold to see their favourite teams play, but even seasoned fans sometimes have second thoughts when the

weather turns nasty. This is compounded by the fact that the new stadiums are all open structures, putting more of a bite in

the cold air flowing into the grandstands.

It is also fitted with a unique new anti-propagation device that not only simplifies installation, but also prevents propagation from damag-ing the burner while increasing the safety of the system.”

A heating system using gas infrared radiant heaters is the best way to fulfil the special requirements of open space heating. It is clean and easy to regulate, there are no distribution losses and it’s energy-saving as heat is imme-diately usable.

Comfortable and healthyThe gas infrared radiant heater emits medium-wave infrared

radiation transferred into heat when it hits a body. As the air is almost permeable to radiation, it is not heated up. Therefore it is possible to heat open grandstands in sports arenas or other open spaces economically and comfortably. Bright radiators are directly heated. The gas/air mixture burns on the surface of a ceramic plate where the surface temperature is about 850°C to 900°C. Most of the heat is transferred to the surroundings by direct radiation.

The temperature sensed by a person is a combination of the air temperature and the intensity of radiation. Due to the high amount of radiant heat emitted by the gas infrared heaters, a high thermal comfort is reached even in the face of low outside temperatures. The ambient air remains cool and fresh and thus the climate is comfortable and healthy. In addition, indirect heating comes from the heated walls, floors and other objects warmed up by the radia-tion before spectators are seated.

ImpressedPaul Appalsamy, Chief Executive Officer at Ellis Park comments, “Often event schedules overlap with our winter and any event with a 15h00 kick-off and later, held at the stadium during the winter period, is very uncomfortable. Blankets are provided to our VVIP and VIP guests to ensure their comfort but it’s cumbersome and untidy.

“When we were first exposed to the GoGaS heating concept, I was immediately convinced that such an installation would be of definite value to our venue and in line with our facility improve-ment. The GoGaS space heating covers the main west grandstand over level 1 to 3.

Bundling into their boxes“And it’s a real big hit with the ladies who are now able to sit and enjoy the total atmosphere of the game,” he continues. “It also means we have less of a crush with everyone bundling into their boxes because of the cold. The installation process and the speed with which it was implemented was also very impressive.”

The GoGaS heating system, installed at outdoor and indoor sports arenas all over Europe is, however, not only for stadium heating. “We customise the control system for various applications including factories, churches and large aircraft hangars,” says Fritz.

“It’s very exciting to be involved in this field when so many great things are happening. Many of our buildings are becoming landmarks and watching the work progress is fantastic. Sites develop daily,” he smiles. “15 Alice Lane Towers, for example, is a stunning project.”

Scheduled for completion in November this year, the award-winning 15 Alice Lane Towers project in Sandton applied some innovative thinking to

Invariably it involves a complex iteration process between various professionals

Getting it Covered

From an architectural

standpoint, the façade of a building plays a

tremendously important role, since it can set

the tone for the entire structure. It’s not

surprising, then, that the field is becoming

more specialised on an almost daily basis.

Colin Gardner, Grinaker-LTA FaçadesOne company that’s been involved in some exciting projects is Grinaker-LTA Façades, which specialises in external cladding of buildings, primarily in glass

and aluminium. “We generally subcontract on large projects in what is a very specialist field,” General Manager, Colin Gardner, tells “Architect & Specificator”.

Front-end design“We head up the front-end design and development responsibility and drive this part of the practice ourselves,” he continues. “Invariably it involves a complex iteration process between various

overcome the challenge of creating a vertically curved curtain wall made up of panels of different tinted glass. The outcome is a chequer-pattern effect, with geometric shapes creating a dramatic partnership with the fluid flow of the walls.

Innovative concept“The professional team came to us with conceptual drawings, and we knew we could do it,” Colin says. “Obviously we prefer to have a little more to work with, but this was such an innovative concept that we were keen to get involved.”

The vertically curved curtain wall, which protrudes five metres past the outside of the structure, con-sists of a variety of patterned glass elements with panels held in place by a combination of brack-etry and structural silicone. While Grinaker-LTA Facades’ Jet Park factory boasts state of the art machinery for manufacture, special dies had to be made for the Alice Lane development. “It’s been a very complex project,” explains Colin. “It took a year of design and development and we’re still resolving issues as the building progresses.”

Planning ahead“All projects have their share of challenges,” he continues, referring to the new Investec Building


The chequer-plate façade of the Alice Lane project is made up of numerous glass panels held in place by aluminium clips

23Architect & Specificator May/June 2010


The new Investec Building on the Umhlanga Ridge includes a combination of flush glazed single and double-glazed panel systems

on the Umhlanga Ridge in Durban. One of the most noteworthy elements of this project is the 600m2 planar screen which uses a combination of imported and specially-designed local fittings and suspension cables to hold the structure in place. A combination of varying densities of fritted glass provides shading from the sun.

“Specialist consultation is a crucial part of the pro-cess,” adds Colin. “We advise on all the technical aspects of the job. This also applies to the thermal and shading criteria. The clients choose the glass and we, in conjunction with our suppliers, assist by providing the technical properties. This informa-tion is then passed on to the HVAC professionals to determine their requirements.”

Blending inThe R33-million subcontract for the Inner Circle offices in Rivonia Road, Morningside was completed ahead of schedule last year. Comprising 1600 curtain wall units, the 10 500m2 curtain wall is not only a shimmering façade with its combination of Arctic Blue and Marine Blue glass, it was also designed to maximise the natural lighting and reduce solar heat build-up in the 10-storey office block.

“Façades are also a useful way of getting new buildings to work cohesively with existing ones,” Colin explains. “Creating landmarks is invigorat-ing work, but in many instances buildings need to remain true to the surrounding architecture. Façades make this possible without compromis-ing on the integrity of the design. Add this to the ability to optimise thermal efficiency, address light

were a swearword. We had to assure clients that they could rely on us for stock and parts – all within a 24 hour turnaround time.”

Raindrops keep falling…Although Anthony is focused on service, it’s the design and technology of these products that catches our attention. “The technology is phenomenal and it’s what sets our products apart from the cheap knock-offs,” he explains. “Hansgrohe products go beyond simply dispensing water.”

Using the Venturi principle, the shower heads mix air into the water stream to create a unique sensory feel. “If a strobe light is shone on the stream, you’d be able to identify individual droplets. It’s like standing under raindrops,” he smiles. “The sensa-tion is softer and more in harmony with nature.”

Universal systemA firm belief that technology and design should work hand-in-hand has encouraged the company to develop its ‘iBox’, a universal concealed unit that works with any type of mixer from any of the design ranges, along with all associated equipment, such as thermostatic devices.

“This allows you to change from one product range to another without hav-ing to change your entire plumbing set-up,” explains Anthony. “It not only gives the homeowner the freedom to upgrade with ease, but makes the plumbing process a lot simpler.”

Clean waterNot only are the products techno-logically advanced, they’re also environmentally friendly. The green showerhead, Crometta 85 Green, uses six litres of water instead of the industry standard of 15 to 18. For Hansgrohe, however, green culture is not a new concept.

Anthony Mederer, MD of the South African chapter of this sanitary style icon, tells “Architect & Specificator” that for the German-based company, service is not

an option. “We’ve invested a fortune in our service centres,” he tells us. “Setting a service benchmark was vital back in the days when imported products

tive area, so green manufacturing processes are entrenched in our operational methodology,” says Anthony. “Our factories are energy efficient and our manufacturing processes are as safe as possible to the environment.”

Small sacrificeHe admits, however, that green compliance some-times requires small sacrifices. “At the end of the day, a water efficient shower head dispenses less water and while we’ve introduced methods to maximise flow, inevitably some people will notice the difference.”

This issue is easy to overlook by those committed to the process, who will no doubt also appreciate the Hansgrohe’s Pontos water recycling system. This domestic unit is able to treat bath and shower water before re-routing it for gardening, cleaning and toilet flushing purposes.

Smart and beautifulHansgrohe’s design team have produced outstanding ranges for a variety of markets. The Pharo brand includes shower solutions and steam cabins, Pontos addresses grey water recycling systems while the Axor range highlights top-end design.

“Our designers are world renowned and they’re not afraid to take chances,” Anthony says with clear pride. Names like Phillipe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, Antonio Citterio and Jean-marie Massaud trip off his tongue with practised ease while a new range by the Bouroullec Brothers is set for its launch in South Africa in June.

“We work with top creators to keep us at the vanguard of the design sphere,” he explains. “It’s important to work with the best people to get the best results. Often companies try to do everything themselves, from developing the technology to handling the design. We recognise the importance of employing specialists to handle the various areas.

Organic form“Our designers draw attention to our name. In ’94, when Starck brought out a range featuring counter-top basins and tall taps, he set a new standard in bathroom design. Citterio’s edgy square tap with its simplistic design has changed the look of taps everywhere and Massuad’s organic form is nature inspired. These designers really test the limits of bathroom design.”

Hansgrohe’s attention to design, has won the company some heavyweight design awards. “This is what has made Hansgrohe a powerful player in the sanitary industry,” concludes Anthony.

When “Architect & Specificator” speaks to Thomas Datel, MD of Datlink, he has a lot to say on all of these subjects. “With the SANS 204 Thermal Efficiency

Standard for buildings due to be legislated in June this year, buildings will have to conform to the standards stipulated by TIASA and the SABS,” he tells us.

“This is a positive development – thermally efficient building, together with performance windows, will save in the region of 4500MW. In the face of our current energy crisis, the importance of this aspect simply cannot be overlooked.”

Smart buildingWhile it’s generally assumed that green building is, at least at the construction stage, more expensive than conventional building, in many instances energy efficiency relies on smart, passive design of the building envelope to effectively manage heat loss and gain. Including insulation adds some expense, but has so many benefits that the cost factor is quickly outweighed. Using green insulation takes the environmental commitment a step further.

“Everyone is talking about green options at the moment, but it’s important that the products that are used are verified by an independent body to ensure that they will be accepted by the Green Building Council,” Thomas advises.

Affordable solutionsWith extensive experience in providing cost-ef-fective yet efficient green insulation solutions for affordable housing, Datlink has researched the subject exhaustively. It’s projects are frequently showcased in various housing competitions. A project highlighted in ABSA’s Innovative Afford-able Housing Competition incorporated InnoBlok 140mm Insulated Masonary Blocks developed by Datlink specifically for use in the affordable hous-ing sector. Datlink’s 42m² entry level house was awarded 2nd place in this competition.

“The material, which is NHBRC and Agrement approved, has additional benefits since it can also save costs by not having to be plastered when used with ThermocousTex or IsoBoard ceil-ings, allowing funds to be used on other useful mechanisms. Installing solar water heaters are not only energy efficient, but they also play a social

polyester fibre, or kenaf, which is a non-toxic and non-harmful, low VOC product as well as being a more installer-friendly alternative to fibreglass insulation. Romatherm insulation can be installed on top of ceilings, and mixed InnoFilla insulating material into concrete to provide thermal values.

Taking credits“In addition, with the energy savings achieved, certain projects can register for carbon credits. For example for low cost housing we show energy savings of 45% over conventional houses and between 4-6 tons of carbon per unit per year,” he adds. “This can generate about R550,00 rand per house, which can be used to build more units, put back into the community for improvements or be used to pay off loans to build better units.”

Formalised in the Kyoto Protocol in a bid to di-minish concentrations of greenhouse gases, the carbon credit system has begun to draw local interest. The goal of the scheme is to allow market mechanisms to drive business towards a low-emissions approach. Greenhouse gas mitigation projects generate credits, with one carbon credit being the equivalent of one ton of carbon dioxide. These credits may be purchased by companies, governments or other entities with high footprints to lower their rating by effectively becoming financers of carbon reduction projects.

Fortunately, affordable housing is not the only area of the construction arena that has validated the importance of insulation and acoustics. Some of Datlink’s other clients have recognised the material

Grand West Casino

for its acoustic properties. Cape Town Film Studio, Gautrain, Cape Town International Airport, and a number of call centres and education facilities have benefited from the company’s advice and product installation.

“There’s often the implication that green products are more expensive than others,” ends Thomas “However there’s a growing number of green op-tions that are competitive with their non-green counterparts. We’ve been very happy with the performance of our green range; they’re excellent products in their own right. Being green is simply a bonus.”

Brochures and catalogues do a good job of showcas-

ing a product range, as do interactive websites,

however little can compare with the sensory satisfac-tion of actually handling the items themselves.

When “Architect & Specifcator” visits the offices of Geze South Africa, a tour

through the showroom with MD, Kevin Diamond, gives us first-

hand experience of the vast array of handles, hinges and door systems the company offers.

First impressions“We find that this is the most effective way of show-

ing architects what they’ll be working with,” says Kevin. “They can feel how the mechanisms operate and it gives them a real sense of how the product will fit into their design, and of the impression it creates with the mechanism they choose.”

While some might think that door mechanisms are a minor detail in the grand scheme of things, for Kevin, they’re vital. “A doorway creates a first impression of the building you’re entering,” he explains. “Ironmongery is generally the last thing that happens in a building, but a handle is the first thing you touch when you enter.”

The company currently has three product ranges on offer: Hoppe’s upmarket range easy-to-install door handles; Exidor, which is a European compliant

range of panic hardware and the highly specifica-tion-driven Geze range of door mechanisms which range from door closers to automatic doors.

“The three options complement each other perfectly,” says Kevin, explaining that each meets a specific market need. Geze, however, draws our attention due to the innovative nature of the products. In the past year alone, the company has introduced

23 new offerings ranging from safety technology to radio-controlled opening mechanisms and a new security-based electronic range that can be built into a building’s management system.

Simply greenOne product that has already received attention in previous issues of this publication is the Geze RWA system. While previous articles have focused on the safety applications of the system, Kevin explains that it has considerable scope as an energy saving device.

“While smoke control and emergency evacuation are primary features of the RWA range, the prod-uct also has a significant role to play in terms of managing energy consumption within a building. The potential for green design is huge,” he says with enthusiasm.

When fitted with sun and rain sensors, the sys-tem facilitates natural ventilation, automatically opening and closing windows to manage airflow

within a building. “It’s a very practical approach to minimising airconditioning and even lighting costs,” Kevin continues.

Practical approachIn fact, this principle generally drives the entire company. Geze is a family-run business headed by Bridgitte Voster-Alber and her practical approach comes through in their products.”

“Our products can easily be worked into a manage-ment system. For instance, we can retrofit access control into an existing building,” he says,

“A strong component of our business is working closely with the architect to specify a product, closely with the merchant to deliver it to site, and closely with the contractor to assist with installation. On-

site support is crucial,” Kevin emphasises. “We’re starting to see contractors moving towards having manufacturers on-site to offer installation training as a means of maintaining product quality.”

In Kevin’s opinion, this is not so much a new ap-proach as it is a return to old values. “My father was a carpenter and for him, quality was not negotiable; it was simply the way things were done. We need more specialists like this on site to oversee the process.”

Meaty projectsA specialist philosophy is also reflected in the Geze team. “In addition to our incredible Gauteng branch, we have a very strong team in Cape Town and wonderful people in Durban. This is getting us some meaty projects that we’re really proud of.

“For example, the Port Elizabeth and Cape Town football stadiums have seen our products beautifully installed. We walked out of there with our chests puffed out,” he laughs. The staff is passionate and

motivated, which is essential in a market that’s so difficult to read.

“We’re also very lucky with Geze because of the innovations it constantly introduces; we’re never static. Architects love something new and exciting, particularly if they’re given a chance to tinker with it, which is why our showroom is so useful. It makes the products real for the guys; they get to interact. All in all, it’s a winning combination.”

In a world of instant gratification, most of us take

hot water for granted. However, as society turns its attention to all mat-

ters green, many of us are becoming aware that an electric water heater (geyser) is

becoming an expensive item on numerous levels.


Established in 1903, Kwikot boasts over a century of design and manufacture, with a green initiative that started as far back as the 1980s. “Architect & Specificator”

speaks to Kwikot, to learn about the company’s solution to the ecological, social and psychological implications of hot water.

The company has had tremendous success with their export of the indirect double-jacketed solar water heater tanks, which where designed in con-junction with an Aus-tralian company in 2001. In 2007 this product was aligned with Eskom’s initia-tive to subsidise domestic solar water heaters,

along with the launching of the new Kwiksol brand name.

Product offeringThe Direct System is used in frost-free areas, or where the ambient temperature remains above 5ºC. The potable water in the solar water heater is heated directly by passing through the solar collector panels or manifold for an array of solar vacuum tubes.

The Indirect System is installed in very cold, frost-prone areas, such as the Highveld and utilises a dilution of propylene glycol and water as the heat

transfer fluid. This fluid passes through the double-jacketed tank and the solar collector panel or manifold of the solar vacuum tubes, heating the water in the inner tank indirectly.

Both systems can also be used as conventional electric geysers if there isn’t enough solar energy to heat the water as they are fitted with an

element and thermostat.

Frost-proneKwikot has also recently launched a

complete Direct System that can be used in frost-prone areas. However this system can

only be used in conjunction with an array of solar vacuum tubes with manifold and frame, and is supplied with a pitched roof support for a themo-syphon close-coupled system.

Silicone tubing is supplied, which is inserted into the external copper piping that connects the solar water heater to the manifold for the tubes. This silicone tubing prevents the pipes from freezing up in very cold conditions.

Affordable solutionMost South African homes are equipped with an electric water heater due to the abundance of electricity available and cheap electricity in the

80s, 90s and even into the turn of the century. Changing to a complete new solar water heating system comes at an initial substantial cost, which many homeowners cannot afford and/or they have electric water heaters, which are still in perfect working condition. So Kwikot offers a system that converts an existing installed Kwikot electric water heater to solar, at an affordable price. An attractive alternative to investing in a complete new solar water heating system.

The Solarfit kit, also known as a Retrofit kit, includes a flange assembly for either direct or indirect water heaters, glass solar vacuum tubes with frame, manifold, solar circulating pump and solar photovoltaic panel. The indirect system also comes with an expansion tank and a one-litre bottle of Kwiksol propylene glycol solar heat transfer fluid.

RebatesKwikot currently has 15 products tested and reg-istered with Eskom on the rebate system, from 100lt, 150lt, 200lt and 250lt solar water heaters indirect and indirect systems, various flat plate solar collectors with different aperature areas and solar vacuum tubes, 12, 16, 20 or 32 tube system.

Another three products are currently awaiting testing and Eskom registration. All of these systems are distributed through Kwikot’s national distribution network and to outlets who are accredited Eskom solar suppliers.

Social impactWhile the company’s products have principally been aimed at the middle and upper income mar-kets, South Africa’s burgeoning affordable housing sector has become a focal point. The company has not neglected the millions of low-income households that have electricity but no geyser, or no electricity at all. These households heat water on stoves, paraffin burners (which are a safety risk) or by making a wood or coal fire, none of which is an ideal.

Converts an existing installed Kwikot electric water heater to solar, at an affordable price

So, the company has introduced a 110litre, non-electric complete low-pressure evacuated tube solar system. Safe and affordable, this solar system puts hot water within reach of a sector of society that is often sidelined when it comes to life’s little luxuries.

Apart from eliminating the potential health and safety risks of informal heating methods, simply providing hot water can make a tremendous dif-ference to the quality of life. Considering that a few million houses are home to tens of millions of people, the social implications are significant.

Skilled installersIn a bid to increase the number of skilled solar installers in the country, Kwikot also provides SAQA-accredited training towards the Level 4 Solar Installer title at its training centre in Benoni. Since January this year, 203 plumbers have been trained.

The demand for solar water heating has been growing and it’s set to skyrocket as the additional costs by Eskom’s increases are felt over the next three years. The increase in Eskom’s rebates will make it far more attractive to invest in a solar water heating system. What is vital though is that there are the necessary skills available to ensure that the systems are installed correctly as, without this, the successful roll-out of these products, coupled with back up maintenance, will be significantly hampered.

Versatile style A sophisticated new tufted nylon carpet tile range from Nexus, the commercial division of Belgotex Floorcoverings, adds a new dimension of luxury and style to the tried and tested hardiness of the needlepunch collection.

Base Line, Time Zone and Time Square are luxury ranges designed specifically for commercial office applications with the same excellent soundproofing advantages of broadloom carpets. Made from SDX yarn, these carpet tiles are completely stainproof and UV resistant to fading from sunlight.

Base Line features a subtle light/dark embossed geometric design to create a soft dappled but formal effect in heavy commercial applications. Time Square with its subtle geometric square design and Time Zone with a striated effect are excellent choices in heavy commercial applica-tions where the need to disguise soiling is an important consideration.

Rubix Cube is made from Stainproof Miracle Fibre which is also completely stainproof and very hardwearing. Suited to medium commercial installations where differing textures are key to the design concept, this range features a softer “circuitboard” look for more subtle and repetitive patterned designs in eight contemporary colourways.

Should these tile ranges not meet individual specifica-tions, the Custom-X department offers tailormade designs for unique, custom-made installations in the pattern and style of your choice.

within the device, and BladeRunner users cut board by

pushing the device away from them. This keeps fingers safe and prevents any other injuries that could be caused by a naked blade.

The BladeRunner also cuts RhinoBoard in one sweep, eliminating the need to cut both sides of the board. This reduces cutting time by at least half, as the device’s circular blades score the board on both sides in one quick, safe pass, after which the board is cleanly snapped.

Rising to the challengeIt may be one of the smallest and newest franchises within the Trellidor stable, but Trellidor Lephalale is responsible for setting a new record in the number of security barri-ers supplied on a single project in the company’s 30 year history. With assistance from technical staff from both the Durban head office and Johannesburg branches, the franchise fitted 3 498 security barriers to 350 homes at Eskom’s Ledibeng Eco Estate in Limpopo Province.

“A total of 804 security gates and 2 694 window fixtures had to be measured, manufactured, transported to site and installed within 40 days,” says marketing and sales direc-tor, Peter Rawson. This equated to installing an average of 120 units a day.

From the preliminary measuring for the quotation to the final fitting of each custom-manufactured unit, this has been a team effort with support for Trellidor Lephalale coming from Trellidor’s commercial manager, Paul van Blerk, technical support manager Shaun Erasmus and installation teams from Trellidor Johannesburg.

“The fitting has gone smoothly in spite of the constraints, and shows that our commercial division and franchise operation are capable of handling any sized contract any-where in the country,” Peter concludes.

structural performance and to significantly reduce energy required for heating and cooling in commercial, industrial, institutional and residential buildings.

“This environmentally-friendly and safe to use building material, with enhanced thermal and sound insulation properties, also offers advanced structural integrity over traditional building methods, like bricks and mortar,” says Claudio Rossi of Ikhaya Futurehouse Systems.

The ‘sandwich’ structure of IFHS wall panels consists of an 80 mm thick corrugated EPS sheet core, which is encapsulated by a pre-galvanised, high tensile steel mesh cage and 35 mm thick sand cement plaster for structural strength. If necessary, this plaster can be further re-inforced with the addition of polypropylene fibre. These factory manufactured panels, which are 2,5 m high and 1,12 m wide, have a finished wall thickness of 150 mm.

A standard IFHS wall has a thermal insulation value at least six times better than a 230 mm plastered brick wall, which improves building comfort and reduces en-ergy required for heating and cooling. Sound insulation characteristics of these wall panels are 10 dB superior to a conventional wall.

These lightweight panels are also easy to transport and posi-tion. Each panel area is 2,8 m² which means construction is quick. Plastering can be done conventionally, or by the spray method if greater building speed is required.

Hot receptionSo you require hot water at your office kitchen, but don’t want the expense of installing a large conventional geyser? No problem! Cobra Watertech has designed a series of mini instant water heaters that suit areas where the volume of hot water usage is low, such as medical suites, office kitchenettes, clinics, and domestic kitchens.

The Cobra Prisma Deluxe is available in 10l, 15l and 30l units while the Cobra Boil – for smaller applications – is available from 2.5l to 25l. These instant water heaters solve the problem of having to wait for hot water from larger electric water heaters (geysers) that are installed some distance from the point of use, thus avoiding heat loss through long lengths of pipe.

Cobra Prisma Deluxe Heaters have a Titanium glass-lined cylinder for longer life. All units have a gloss finish non-corrosive polypropylene outer casing, which provides aesthetic appeal and will not discolour over time. Water remains heated for longer periods, thanks to thick polyurethane foam insulation inside the cylinder that prevents heat loss, thus saving on high electricity bills. Units are fitted with a larger sacrificial anode, providing additional inner cylinder protection.

The 30-year celebrations follow Civcon’s successful merger with Altx listed construction group, Erbacon Investment Holdings Limited in 2009. This occurred concurrently with black-owned private equity company, Medu Capital (Pty) Limited’s acquisition of a 29.4% stake in the group. Erbacon has achieved CIDB 9CE status, which is the highest CIDB grading a construction company can achieve.

Erbacon CEO, Dave Erskine, says that Erbacon is now fully compliant with the BEE requirements of the Construction Industry Charter. In addition, the deal has increased the enlarged group’s footprint in the construction industry and enables it to tender more competitively on larger construc-tion projects.

Doubling their footprintSheraton Hotels & Resorts is increasing its worldwide footprint through a strategic expansion that will add approximately 50 new hotels and over 20 000 rooms to the brand over the next three years.

More than $4 billion is being invested in new hotel open-ings across four continents. Sheraton currently boasts more than 400 hotels in 70 countries with 92% global awareness among business travelers - the highest of any hotel brand in the world.

Beginning in 2010, the brand will open roughly 50 new hotels over three years in 15 countries, including the United States, Colombia, India, Russia, Slovakia, Taiwan and Vietnam. Sheraton - the largest international upper-upscale hotel brand in China - will nearly double its footprint in the country with the addition of 28 stunning new proper-ties, including the Sheraton Shanghai Hong Kou Hotel, Sheraton Qingdao and Sheraton Huadu Resort, bringing its total number of hotels there to 50.

The brand will also add 10 new resorts to portfolio, ex-pand its footprint in New York City with new properties in Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood and open several new convention hotels.

By 2015, it is estimated that 400 million Chinese and Indians will have sufficient incomes to travel abroad – this figure is seven times the number of international travelers who visited the United States in 2009.

Impressive advantagesMultinational steel supplier, Blue-Scope Steel, has made its range of lightweight, corrosion resistant steel framing and trusses available in South Africa. Steel frames can be pre-punched to allow electrical and plumbing services to be installed quickly and efficiently. Waste is mini-mised by taking advantage of off-site fabrication of building frames. “This is entirely in line with the philosophy of sustainable building practice”, says the company’s Wayne Miller.

Lightweight steel frames and trusses are quick to erect on site, requiring less energy and saving time. They are also more economical to transport to site and, having lower mass, leaving a lower carbon footprint than heavy steel. BlueScope Steel’s product, now available in South Africa, is called TrueCore. Importantly, the product, is coated with a metallic coating similar to Zincalume Steel, which makes it highly corrosion resistant and durable. The coating is based on an metallic mixture consisting of 55% Aluminium, 43.5% Zinc and 1.5% Silicon. It is easily identified by its slightly blue tinge.

Wayne points out that light steel framing offers immense advantages in aggressive climates such as found in South Africa. The product is also impervious to hostile insect infestations and will not burn, thus reducing the risk of fire spreading throughout the entire structure of the building.

Store owners are more aware of the cost of lighting per sale and are therefore seeking energy savings through new technology. New solutions such as T5 and ceramic Metal Halide Lamps are available and growing in popularity and use.

“Lighting should be considered a sales tool in retail environments,” says Valerie Poyurs, Director of Marketing at The Radiant Group (Radiant). “It can be used to at-tract customers into the store, lead them through merchandise areas, call attention to specific merchandise and draw shop-pers through the transaction process—all the while conveying specific moods or enhancing various merchandising themes. The effective use of light can dramatically enhance the performance of most retail environments.”

Valerie believes that merchandising areas can be dynamic lighting environments in which key items may be moved frequently. “In these areas, it is critical to think of light in three dimensions since the task may range from horizontal merchandise tables to vertical display walls. Light quality requirements that must be considered involve colour qual-ity, distribution and glare control,” she adds.

Most retail environments are illuminated using either a static or kinetic approach. In a static lighting system, the

He adds that the new facility, built on 9200sqm, comprises an impressive showroom for both new and pre-owned Porsche, a coffee shop where customers can relax; a Porsche Design Drivers’ Selection outlet which will fur-ther enhance the total Porsche experience, as well as a state-of- the-art service centre, wheel alignment and tyre fitment facility for customers to enjoy a comprehensive ownership experience.

“Porsche’s diverse and exciting product range, the Boxster,Cayman, iconic 911 and the recently introduced Panamera four-door sport saloon is to be comple-mented with the immi-nent launch of the all-new Cayenne four-wheel-drive sport utility vehicle in July; which promises to be a very exciting model for the market.

Toby says the Porsche Centre Cape Town is being built according to the same worldwide corporate stan-dards as the flagship facility in Johannesburg which, in fact, is the largest Porsche Centre in the world, and the recently-opened Porsche Centre in Umhlanga.

Construction of the centre is due for completion by the end of 2010.

News & ViewsWriting is on the wallVitrex has launched new vitre-ous enamelled steel writing walls, produced by using the company’s architectural cladding panels to create large writing surfaces.

The writing walls, a “first” for South Africa, can be custom-made by Vitrex at its Jet Park factory to suit specific room layouts and wall sizes. The writing walls offer greatly increased writing surfaces compared with tra-ditional writing boards.

Cristian Cottino, Sales and Marketing Director of Vitrex, says, “The writing walls- which can be supplied with graphics and screening options - are ideal for meeting rooms, boardrooms,

computer rooms, laboratories and ‘think tanks’.”

The first installation of a Vitrex writing wall was recently completed at the Sandton premises of a leading advertising agency. Designed by Design Inline, five white VE panels make up the 5m long writing wall which is 2m high. Vitrex subsequently also secured a contract for a 5,6m long and 2,4m high writing wall for the Venue Operations Centre meeting room at the 2010 Soccer World Cup Moses Mab-hida Stadium in Durban. Five panels of VE cladding make up the writing wall specified by architects, Ibhola Lethu Consortium (ILC).

In both instances, white writing walls were specified.

Cristian says alternative painted steel surfaces, often classified with vitreous enamel under the generic banner “magnetic surfaces”, as well as high-pressure density laminate writing

Mixing your ownMaking its debut in South Africa is the super-strong Fiori self-loading concrete mixer range that is equipped to handle South Africa’s toughest terrain and batch quality concrete in the most remote areas.

Director, Pan Mixers South Africa, Walter Ebeling, believes the plant to be a top quality offering for the local building and construction industry, as well as certain applications in the mining sector.

“This equipment is ideal for mixing high- quality concrete, without having a massive concrete batching plant or a large labour force. To be able to mix your own quality concrete in rural areas or Greenfields sites means cutting down the costs and logistics involved in transporting ready mixed product.”

These hydraulically- operated, standalone machines are

able to scoop, load, mix, transport and place concrete independently, while being operated by a single person. They are also easy to maneuver, making them suitable for low cost housing sites and other infrastructure projects.

“Customers can also opt for the on board electronic weigh-ing system which ensures that every batch is identical in quality and weight, with a receipt printed out for every operation to keep as a permanent record,” Walter explains. “The mixing drum has a double auger system that mixes concrete very intensely and prevents material segregation, giving a superb quality end product.”

What’s more, these mixers have their own loading bucket and are mounted on a mixing truck, which drives the bucket into the sand and stone stockpile and loads itself. “Bigger models offer four-wheel drive with hydrostatics that enables them to handle rough terrain – ideal for local conditions,” says Walter.

Into exileAt a ceremony held in May at Monte Casino, ABSA Bank awarded Kavango Block Brick with numerous awards including first place in the “Breaking New Ground (BNG) Energy Efficiency category for Innovative Housing, third place in the “Break-ing New Ground (BNG) Housing category for Innovative Housing, and third place “Affordable Housing category for Innovative Housing.

Heinrich Schroeder CEO and founder of the Ka-vango Block Brick says “In order to address the housing backlog in South Africa, Namibia and the rest of Africa, houses need to be con-

structed at a much faster pace, yet quality control standards need to be properly maintained and controlled, and this is what can be achieved with our system”.

Into the CapeDuro Pressings, South Africa’s largest manufacturer and distributor of steel and aluminium windows, doors and allied building products, has established a R3-million new aluminium window production facility in the Western Cape.

Located at Kuils River, and operated under the umbrella of Duro’s aluminium product division, Richards and Barlow (R&B), the project was commissioned in the first half of April.

The investment by Duro is seen as a clear vote of confidence in the Western Cape’s building, construction and home improvement sector at a time when it is still shaking off the effects of the worst recession in almost two decades.

Handrailing performs of vital safety role

in South Africa making history in showcasing International ideas on innovative building technologies. Kavango Block Brick is a truly Namibian concept and has proven that Namibia can make a significant contribution in reducing the housing shortage facing the SADC region.

James Arm, marketing manager of Kavango Block Brick based in Cape Town says, “ We had to go into exile in South Africa to prove to the people of Namibia and the rest of the world that the K-Brick technology is a sustainable solution with regards to housing delivery. Winning places in all three categories at the International Innovative Hous-ing and Sustainable Energy Efficiency Competition 2009 bares witness to this”.

Aesthetic and practicalAcross a broad spectrum of industries that range from food and beverage to heavy industrial, cosmetic and sewage, Andrew Mentis stainless steel tubular handrailing still is corrosion resistant, maintenance free, and is the handrailing of choice in corrosive and damp environments.

“It is aesthetically pleasing and its scratch- and stain-resis-tant properties make it the obvious alternative to traditional mild steel or painted handrailings,” explains Elaine van Rooyen, marketing manager at Andrew Mentis.

Three alternative grades are available: 3CR12, 304 and 316 stainless steel, with stanchions 45 mm in diameter with a 2mm wall thickness and base plates designed to allow moisture to drain from the stanchion itself, adding to the corrosion-resistant benefits. “The centre hole for the knee rail is drilled and then flared on both sides,” Elaine says. “The top is also flared and a half round cap is welded into place. The base plate is 8 mm thick and welded to the tube.”

The clean modern lines are attractive and the stanchions offer a variety of standard angles and matching accessories. Bends and closures common to mild steel systems are also available for this stainless steel system.

News & ViewsRivier window manufacturing facility – which dovetails on the same site with R&B’s Western Cape distribution nerve centre – will be managed by a team led by Theo Butler and David Garrett, both of whom are residents of Cape Town.

“This project enables us not only to boost service to our community of customers in the Western Cape, but also to move even closer to them as the source of a wide, and fully complementary, range of R&B aluminium products that are being increasingly used in the housing market in the region – from economic and affordable to top-end homes.

“It also provides the perfect springboard from which we will launch an exciting range of new aluminium products – particularly in shower doors and in double glazed lines,” adds Stephan.

The R&B aluminium product range is now marketed un-der two consumer brands - “Como” (windows and doors) and “Bellagio” (shower doors and other bathroom acces-sories).

“Our distribution infrastructure at Kuils Rivier covers not only the Peninsula and the Western Cape but also reaches into the Northern Cape – as far as Kakamas in Namaqua-land – as well as into Namibia… the two brands a strong footprint in the region,” Stephen concludes.
