SABS ACCREDITATION ESSENTIAL FOR DAMP AND WATER-PROOFING MEMBRANES

Regulations in the South African plastic sheeting market are becoming more stringent, as the SABS and the National Regulator for Certified Standards (NRCS) continue to crack down on manufacturers that disregard quality standards. 

A major enforcer of this tightened regulation is the Consumer Protection Act, which makes the retailer responsible for the quality of the product supplied. As a result, retailers and other industry role players now insist on the SABS mark on all products used for construction purposes, such as SANS 952, which covers polymer film for damp-proofing and waterproofing in buildings.

ELIMINATE TIME SPENT WEEDING WITH WEED BLOCK

Stop unwanted weeds from persistently popping up in gardens and outdoor areas with Weed Block – a chemical-free barrier for weed eradication that eliminates the hassle of a long, drawn-out installation through a simple unrolling and pinning process. 

Built for durability and longevity, Weed Block is made from non-woven Polypropylene, a plastic raw material that is inert and will last several years if placed under the application of choice. Damax Kahn & Kahn CEO David Tromp says that locally-manufactured Weed Block enables water to filter through it, and does not emit any harmful substances that may be detrimental to plants. 

Weed Block is also tear-resistant and does not promote mould growth. It can be used under pebbles and mulching, gravel and decking, bark chips and grass, in children’s play areas, as well as pathways. What’s more, it eliminates the need for time-consuming manual weeding, which needs to be done at least every two weeks. As a result, it is ideal for landscaping and gardening applications.
