Hybrid drainage systems for gravity sloped wastewater pipes – Hybrid Lifting Stations Lifting stations are often installed as a safety measure even though gravity sloped drainage is available. The disadvantage is that these systems must pump every single litre of collected wastewater. This leads to constant operation of the pumps, high energy usage, wear and tear on the system as well as nuisance noise – with the new KESSEL hybrid lifting station, all these problems are solved. KESSEL AG Hybrid lifting stations 3 The Pumpfix and Ecolift XL hybrid lifting stations offer safe and reliable protection against backwater and come into service only when necessary – during backwater. The Pumpfix (for domestic applications) and the Ecolift XL (for industrial applications) are the new ideal solutions for installation in gravity wastewater drainage systems – both for new construction and renovations.

CemCote (Brushed) is a finely ground mixture of white Portland cement, pigments and chemicals. It is supplied in powder form requiring mixing with water on-site to produce a smooth, flowing coating which sets rock hard and is unaffected by UV light. CemCote can also be skimmed if a different finish is required. See CemCote (Skimmed) datasheet.
Cemcrete Products Brochure Since 1973 Cemcrete has manufactured a specialised range of cement-based coatings and building materials to finish and aid in construction projects. Cemcrete’s range of over 80 products includes cement-based finishes for walls, floors, countertops, pools and many more. These distinctive finishes are favourable among homeowners, architects and the construction industry in general due to their superior quality, excellent value, as well as offering a unique alternative to generic coatings.
An important consideration when building with timber is predicting how long the structure will last. Whilst insects, decay or rotting organisms and marine borers can all attack wood, some timber species have the ability to resist attack better than others. The natural durability of a species to resist attack by wood destroying organisms is an indication of how long that timber will last when it is exposed to a defined set of exposure conditions without any additional preservative protection. The natural durability of timber species varies, even so within the wood from the same species of tree, depending on whether its sapwood or heartwood.
According to NRCS VC 9092, The Compulsory Specification for Preservative Treated Timber, any preservative treated timber product claiming to be preservative treated must be branded as specified in the relevant SANS product standards. An important part of the brand is the Hazard Class, which indicates the service conditions to which the product is exposed and the level of treatment or level of protection that must be applied to the wood. The Hazard Classes have been defined as follows…

Polyester Fibre insulating blanket, supplied in roll form in various thicknesses.
Insulation: Terraco, Ambient Finishcoat DP, Acoustic Finishcoat Plastering Compound for use as part of the Terraco Ambient Acoustic Ceiling System
InnoClean Plus wastewater treatment systems. In remote rural areas in particular, houses are not always connected to the public sewer system. Polyethylene septic tanks are much more than just an alternative to concrete systems. Low transport costs, absolute water-tightness, durability and extreme fracture resistance are just a few of the advantages of the polyethylene material used.

Loft insulation is a high quality glasswool thermal and acoustic insulation that is bonded with an inert, thermosetting resin. The strong, resilient, flexible blankets are supplied in compression packed rolls and are easy to cut and install.
Isoboard cavity wall insulation will prevent heat transfer and build-up to the inner leaf of sun exposed walls. Moisture within the cavity is prevented from condensing onto and penetrating through the inner leaf when IsoBoard is installed. The insulation restricts heating ingress to temperature controlled and passive cooled environments.
IsoBoard Insulation installed over purlin under roof sheet. — In South Africa, the bulk of retail and industrial buildings are steel-sheet clad frames, where 70% of the heat gain is through the roof. IsoBoard over purlin insulation is the most cost effective method of achieving thermal efficiency in these buildings.
Loss of heat through floors on concrete surface beds is experienced as a cold underfoot condition, particularly during winter when the supporting soils cool down due to hygroscopic action of water. In order for rooms to be heated or cooled energy efficiently, the floors need to be insulated from the surrounding soil bed to prevent soilbed from being heated.
Silent Gliss focuses on smooth gliding and quiet systems that adapt to any window shape. Our products meet the needs of both the lighting and visibility of the room whilst at the same time considering the interior design.
Roof glazing comes in all shapes and sizes, that’s why Silent Gliss developed a range of customised wintergarden and skylight systems: Elegant waves, innovative tilting panels and retractable roller blinds. Wintergarden systems are suitable for glass roofs, atriums and conservatories.
Flo-Pipe® drainage pipe is optimally slotted for maximum infiltration with minimal blockage. Fabricated from the highest quality HDPE available, the twin wall sandwich design provides strength and flexibility.
Weak and unstable soils are easily strengthened by the inclusion of Miragrid GX geogrids. Miragrid GX geogrids act to structurally increase the load bearing capacity and tensile resistance of the soil beyond its natural limits.
Foam and rubber applications for the automotive industry. Applications: foam sheeting used for protection of body on assembly line, plugging holes in bodywork, tucker blocks for protection of open screw threads in bodywork during spray painting, protective packaging for automotive parts…
