BuddyBats are pipe anchors. Their function is to reduce water hammer caused by vibrations in pipes. Buddy Bats are available in 5 different colours: Black, Brown, White, Red & Blue. They can assist with pipe identification – Red for hot water pipes and Blue for cold water pipes. White BuddyBats can be painted if used on external walls. Brown is traditionally used for copper or brown polycop pipes, or to attach to roof trusses. Brown & Black are the most UV stabilised of all the colours and can be used for external pipe-work, although it is recommended that Nylon BuddyBats are rather used for this application.

Waterproof cement lining that can be applied directly onto hard compacted soil for the cost-effective creation of any water-containing structures such as fish ponds, water channels, dams, drinking troughs, relining of pipes, repair of old cracked reservoirs, flat roof waterproofing, parapet waterproofing etc.
The HyDrain is an ideal cost-effective replacement for the traditional cast iron Full-Bore type and is
specifically designed for use as a Full-Bore drain where needed and is supplied in an easy to use
pack with comprehensive installation instructions for the installer/end users convenience.
The HyDrain Complete comprises of the following components:
The F-Box with a Retaining Ring (made from Hostaform) & Rubber Seal, forms the main body of the
drain which houses components that produces a unique end-product and are available in both
horizontal and vertical discharge points with two outlet sizes (50mm and 75mm). The F-Box is made
from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic for its durability and impact resistant properties.
A Round Red Dust Cover which is made from HD-PE, is supplied for the protection of the F-Box
during the construction phase. An M-sert Waterproofing Flange, manufactured from Glass-filled
Nylon, which is compatible with most conventional methods and applications of waterproofing.
A Domed Grate which is made from Polypropylene with added UV stabilisers to increase longevity in
outdoor applications/installations and is specifically designed with two tiers to attempt to prevent
blockage by debris and is the final step to achieving a High-Quality Full-Bore.
It is supplied with 4x Nuts & Bolts for the fastening down of the Dome Grate and 4 x Finishing Plugs.

The Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) has published the sixth edition of its ‘Precast Concrete Pipe and Portal Culvert’ handbook. Aimed at municipal and consulting engineers, the handbook provides designers of concrete pipes and culverts with basic guidelines on most aspects of selection, specification and testing.
The Concrete Manufacturers Association’s NPC technical committee under the chairmanship of technical director, Taco Voogt, has formed a working group to revise four precast concrete standards: SANS 1058 (concrete paving blocks); SANS 1215 (concrete masonry units); SANS 677 (interlocking concrete pipes); and SANS 542 (concrete roof tiles).
When the Mogalakwena Municipality commenced the storm water pipe upgrading project at Mokopane Ext 20 in Mahwelereng, Limpopo in June 2015, they found that the original storm water pipes installed in the 1960’s were redundant and no longer big enough to accommodate the waste needs of the local community. Bashitwa Construction, who were awarded this project partnered with Rocla, a South African pre-cast concrete pipe specialist to replace these old pipes with new, larger pre-cast concrete pipes which offer a greater longevity.
“Concrete is the material with the proven track record to provide tried and tested – as well as innovative – solutions for sustainable housing,” says Adele de Lange, technical marketing consultant: human settlements at the Cement & Concrete Institute (C&CI).
