We specialize in the manufacture & erection of carport structures. Our carports consists solely of steel products namely powder coated steel roof sheets, steel beams, steel uprights and specially extruded steel concealed box guttering. Being based in Durban where the temperatures and humidity are of serious concern, we insist that all mild steel beams and uprights are hot-dip galvanized.

The metal roof sheets that are commonly used are the Galvanised, Zincalume, Chromadek, Colorbond and Aluminium IBR profile roof sheets. With the exception of the Galvanized and Zincalume roof sheets, all other roof sheets and concealed facier box gutter are factory powder coated (mainly white) to extend the lifespan, enhance the look and avoid expensive painting and maintenance.

Despite all the other variety of carports like, wood, fiberglass and shadecloth we have rather opted to offer a more permanent solution with the longest and most durable lifespan. Unlike wood which rots, fiberglass which hardens, cracks and blows away, shade cloth which frays and collect dust, our carports are waterproof, do not crack, fray, rot and go on and on.

To cater for the homeowner who is concerned about the sunlight that is obscured, we offer the alternative of using translucent Polycarbonate roof sheets. It consists of a high quality resin with a glass-like clarity. It is strong, very durable, flexible and hail resistant. For the discerning client we strongly recommend this over the cheaper alternative of the traditional fiberglass.

Over the years, we are proud to have under our belt the support of prestigious business clients viz, Nampak Flexibles, Ethekweni Municipality, Department of Public Works, Department of Education and Culture, Mt Edgcombe Country Club, Department of Housing, Quality Chemicals, Raffallo Paper Mills, Engen Refinery, Reman Alton Transport, Spar-KZN, Department of Justice, Otis Lifts, and Cosatu-KZN not forgetting many other business enterprises.
