The Rocla  (0.02 MB)

Climate change has brought about major changes in weather cycles, and the need for commuters to find shelter from the dramatic heavy rain storms and the parched heat of summer has increased the requirement for solid, safe and indestructible bus shelters for those using municipal and local transportation.

Rocla, one of South Africa’s leading pre-cast concrete manufacturers, has developed a virtually indestructible and vandal proof precast concrete bush shelter, that offers shelter from heat and rain as well as seating in its modular design. The durability of the concrete product guarantees decades of maintenance free life, an important fact for cash-strapped local municipalities wanting to ensure budgets for street furniture are well spent. It also prevents structural vandalism.

The Rocla bus shelter can also be supplied with wind walls for one or both side of the shelter, and although supplied in a light grey colour, the surface is easily painted for advertising, roadside markings and community notice purposes.

Offering commuters shelter from inclement weather with the Rocla solid bus shelter can also lead to the creation of centrally situated community transportation points, thereby increasing commuter safety and convenience. Rocla also offers concrete taxi rank shelters and bus stops as well as other related street furniture such as concrete vendor stalls, sanitation units and concrete street lighting poles.

Contractors are easily able to transfer the bus shelter installation skills to members of local communities which can form part of their community outreach programmes.
