Steel Structures in the South African Farming Sector

In the ever-evolving landscape of South African farming, traditional methods have started giving way to innovative infrastructure solutions. With challenges increasing, farmers are turning their focus towards sturdier, more cost-effective, and durable options. Steel structures, owing to their immense potential, have become increasingly popular. Prominent in this expanding market is SpanAfrica Steel Structures, a name synonymous with quality and commitment.

Project Spotlight: Agricultural Innovations with SpanAfrica

Poultry: This Poultry project bears testimony to the trust placed in SpanAfrica by our recurring clients. Tasked with the challenge of crafting a pellet factory standing at a towering 14.5m and spanning 288m², our team rose to the occasion. Given its proximity to the coast, the steel was Hot Dip Galvanised to counter coastal elements. Additionally, ridge vents were incorporated, ensuring a steady release of hot air and any potential natural gas.

The Outpost Banana Farm: Situated outside the holiday town of Southbroom, flanking the Kwa-Zulu Natal’s Dolphin Coast, this project is an epitome of innovation meeting aesthetics. Erected amidst a banana plantation, the structure serves as a safe storage location for farm equipment. With cladding on only three sides, it eliminated the need for insulation and ventilation, underscoring SpanAfrica’s ability to tailor solutions and be cost effective.

Macadamia Nut Farm: This project involved crafting a 15 x 30 x 6 de-husking plant near a picturesque dam. The structure featured a 0.47mm wide span Colorplus sheet with a bullnose finish. The 12-degree roof pitch was designed for optimal rainwater runoff and the inclusion of a 15 x 3 x 4 lean-to and translucent sheeting for natural light showcased SpanAfrica’s attention to detail and client preferences.

Pig Farm: Located just outside Underberg, this project encapsulates the transformative capability of SpanAfrica. The client’s existing shed, showing signs of wear, was replaced with three structures: Dry Sow Shed (8 x 30.9 x 2.9), Farrow & Weener Shed (8 x 25 x 2.9), and the Grower Shed (10.5 x 42 x 2.9). Featuring 30mm Iso Board for insulation and graded 0.58mm wide span Z275 galvanised sheeting, these sheds are a testament to SpanAfrica’s commitment to marrying functionality with quality.
