KZN PROVINCIAL MAP, LOGISTICS DETAILS AND MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT

KZN Map

RH construction is centrally placed in KZN allowing for quick delivery of materials to and from site anywhere on the map seen above.

RH construction has numerous dedicated building teams capable of working on sites in established and rural areas across the map without assistance from the Manufacturing hub in Richards Bay.

Most building materials and panels are constructed at the Distribution hub in Richards Bay allowing the pre-assembly checking to be done in a controlled environment before final delivery is made on site.

The above mentioned process helps to avoid having incorrect panels and goods delivered to site along with the central positioning allowing for fast site assistance throughout the province to avoid unnecessary down time.

Our major steel supplier Eurosteel and other major material suppliers are based in Durban and our fleet of trucks are in and around Durban on a daily basis.

EQUIPMENT

DESCRIPTION OF USES

PICTURE

1x 90mm Roll former

Roller

2x 64mm Roll formers

CNC controlled machine used to create panellized frameworks by cold forming sheet metal with service hole & rivet hole punching tools as well as notching & cutting tool heads. These machines have an accuracy of up to 1mm and can form structural profiles at a rate of up to 9m per minute.

roller

1x custom profile former / profiler

Manufactures profiled Roof sheeting and wall cladding in pre set profiles by use of rollers, used for cladding and roofing purposes.This machine has a built in shear for cutting accurate sheet lengths as per detail drawing lists.

profiler

1x IBR profile former / profiler

Manufactures IBR profiled Roof sheeting [widespan with an 890mm cover] and wall cladding by use of rollers, used for cladding and roofing purposes. This machine has a built in shear for cutting accurate sheet lengths as per detail drawing lists.

profiler

3200mm x 8mm hydraulic shear

Hydraulic shear used for cutting various metal thickness’s not covered by the built in shear provided with the sheet metal profilers

shear

20 ton Bending machine

Bending machine used for manufacturing of coping , ridge capping and corner capping as well as as the detail specific parts used in the construction and fixing of structures. This machine is capable of bending metal plate up to 20mm thick and can perform bends to multiple pre set angles.

bender

2x 5 Axis robotic arms

These machines are used primarily for mass production.

They are capable of multiple functions to assist in streamlining the construction and manufacturing of panels or parts in large numbers.

These machines come with interchangeable heads to allow numerous different tooling operations from laser cutting and drilling to finite finishing of parts.

These machines have an accuracy of less than 1mm and are programmed to perform repetitive tasks at high speed.

Sandwich panel machine

Sandwich panel machines are the latest advancement in mass production of insulated structures.

This machine outperforms almost any other building process and is also one of the fastest forms of constructing habitable structures whilst maintaining a good insulation factor along with structural stability.

This is also one of the most cost effective building techniques worldwide.

1x Leyland 8 ton truck

Delivery truck dedicated to the delivery of large panels and bulk materials during the early building stage and site establishment.

This truck has a piggy back fork lift for on site assistance when delivering heavy materials and panels.

 

1x Mitsubishi FUSO 8 ton truck

Delivery truck dedicated to the delivery of large panels and bulk materials during the early building stage and site establishment.

This truck has a double cab and can therefore deliver a full building team along with their tools and the construction panels to enable fast mobilisation on site without additional assistance or backup vehicles.

 

2x Hyundai 1 Ton light duty trucks

These two trucks are primarily used for site assistance and small goods delivery as well as on site assistance for large projects and multiple site clusters within the same area.

 

1x Bell TLB

The TLB is used on multiple sites for clearing, excavation & filling and comes with a dedicated driver on delivery.

 

2x light Duty trucks

(Ford Ranger)

RH Construction has two light duty motor vehicles dedicated to assisting the Richards bay plant in the supply and delivery of smaller goods and materials locally and are also dedicated to assisting the other vehicles in the fleet when required as overflow vehicles.
