Architectural metal along South African coastlines have a tough job dealing with salty air, wind, moisture and storms. So when the call for new prefabricated steel warehouses and mini-factories was requested by a private client in Raddical Park, Ballito, the Span Africa experts knew to take these factors into account to ensure the longevity of the structures built on the site.

Raddical Park consists of 4,032m² of warehousing and mini factories.  The project, which comprised two mono-pitch structures, each measuring 24m x 84m x 9.580m through to 7.330m in height, has been the talk of the town thanks to its clean lines and modern aesthetic beauty. The roof sheeting selected was 0.58 IBR Colorplus in Thunderstorm Grey. The aluminium component of the metal coating provides a tough physical barrier between the external atmospheric conditions and the inner core of steel, while zinc in the coating protects the steel at cut edges. . Due to Ballito being a high corrosive area, the steel structure was hot dipped galvanized to ensure further corrosion protection.

The mono-pitch roof sits at a 5.4-degree angle to allow a steady fall of rainwater to be successfully harvested into storage tanks. Alucushion was used to insulate the roof, which also forms part of the ceiling finish.  This was another successful project for Span Africa, furthering our vision for building a stronger Africa together.
