The damage to infrastructure in KwaZulu Natal (KZN) as a result of flooding has certainly taken its toll. Queen Nandi Drive was no exception with damage that included the main sewer line. Rocla was commissioned to supply Rolling Joint Spigot and Socket Pipes with Dolomite Aggregate for the repairs to the main sewer line.

“Rocla supplied 41.48 meters of 1350 mm Rolling Joint (RJ) Spigot and Socket pipes with 19 mm layer and Dolomite Aggregate to the project to repair the main sewer line.” commented Ritesh Singh, Sales Consultant for Rocla based in Newcastle, KZN.

“Rocla is well known for its expertise when it comes to concrete infrastructure products, and it was this word of mouth recommendation that put our products on site. The RJ Spigot and Socket pipes, which are always used in sewer systems, were manufactured at our Roodepoort, Johannesburg factory who had sufficient stock to meet the project’s requirements, and were delivered to deadline in KZN” said Singh.

Rocla offers a range of infrastructure concrete products such as stormwater pipes, culverts, jacking pipes, concrete poles, manholes and sanitation units, many of which have won industry awards for their quality, innovative design and longevity. Rocla’s technical engineers are also available to assess what product will provide the solution for any infrastructure requirement, and if needed can custom design for the client.

Rocla is part of the ISG which also includes Technicrete.
