Precast concrete shelters protect equipment

Precast concrete shelter to secure equipment

Precast concrete shelter to secure equipment

Railway signalling units, batteries and equipment for cell phone towers, security surveillance electronics, photo-voltaic systems, wind farms and other high-value support and back-up equipment are often the target of theft or damage due to their accessibility. Precast concrete equipment shelters are seen as an effective means of reducing the risk of this kind of theft.

Rocla has partnered with entities such as Transnet and South African Railways to provide custom-designed precast concrete security units to house equipment required to control signalling units, which are situated next to railway tracks. 

The concrete shelters can be custom designed to meet client’s requirements and are said to be able to better withstand attempted break-ins than traditional brick and mortar shelters. The shelters aim to provide a solution to reduce tampering, theft and damage to equipment.

The unit is cast as one complete structure, with a cast-in base and thick, high-strength walls, designed to deter break-ins. Potential damage to or entry through walls or the roof is reduced due to the use of a high steel content in the manufacture of the structure.

Each unit has two holes on either side for handling and installation and a specialised heavy-duty door. The holes are designed to provide ventilation, while maintaining the security of the unit.

Rocla is part of the IS Group of companies, which also includes Technicrete.
