Dr Pixley Memorial Hospital external sun louvers

Tensile Cables was tasked by Robertson Ventilation Systems with supplying Stainless Steel cable systems to structurally support external sun louvers for the Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital near Bridge City mall, north of Durban. External building facades have a direct impact and cost saving on the energy requirements of a building.

Tensile Cables manufactured 10mm Stainless Steel cables systems to length according to the specifications of the project. We supplied our specialist 10mm Swaged Toggle fork to Swaged Turnbuckle system and made all the cables up to length with our specialist in house swaging equipment.

The R2,5bn level 2 regional hospital, will serve as a referral center for all surrounding public health care facilities, and will alleviate pressure from the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital, which currently has a massive catchment area.

The brand new 500-bed Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital will open its doors, bringing quality healthcare service delivery to more than 1,5 million people of Inanda, Ntuzuma, KwaMashu (INK) and surrounding areas.

The new hospital will prove a full spectrum of up-to-date world-standard medical services consistent with the norms and standards adopted for all public health facilities in South Africa.

Among its many innovations is energy saving system with the building façade and a water harvesting feature through which rainwater will be harvested and then used for irrigation and ablution.
