Concrete Units (Pty) Ltd was founded in Cape Town in 1984 and subsequently has established a further manufacturing facility in Meyerton, Gauteng.]
The company specialises in the design and manufacture of both standard products such as SANS pipes and culverts, through to non standard products such as exposed aggregate architectural cladding units, stadium seating, prestressed beams and the like. A full service from CAD design to installation of the final product is offered.
Our range of standard products includes large diameter pipes, culverts and retaining walls but we are fully geared to handle special products. We also offer pipes with a range of lining for sewer or other specific applications, such as cast in HDPE lining and CAC (calcium aluminate cement) lining.
Our quality standards have been recognised by the award of the international ISO 9001:2000 certificate. In fact, Concrete Units set the industry standard by being the first of the pipe and culvert manufacturers to be awarded the ISO 9002 certificate. As required either by the SABS or specific client requirements, products are put through vigorous performance tests by the very strict quality control division before being loaded for delivery to site.
No project is too big or too sophisticated, from assisting with the design of retaining systems to the development of international standard sports stadia(an Olympic initiative). A variety of assets include handling equipment suited to lifting up to 100 ton beams.
Precast solutions usually offer a time saving in fast track construction such as multistory buildings and car parks and often feature prominently in nominations and awards such as the Fulton Award and CMA Awards known for their recognition of excellence in the use of concrete.
