The current installations of Flo-Tek’s FlowGuard C-PVC plumbing solutions at Moshupa Hospital and Sesigo Mews in Gaborone are progressing well.
These public and private sector projects are driven by project teams who are embracing new technology and innovation in the plumbing industry as well as supporting locally manufactured products.
Both projects are using C-PVC plumbing solution instead of the traditional copper for plumbing.This is due to C-PVC being naturally equipped for superior performance, having a longer life cycle, requiring very few tools and equipment to achieve a strong, permanent installation.
Flo-Tek provided training to the contractors and plumbers on each project (pictured above). Plumbing installation is currently underway and will continue until the construction is complete.
This innovative, safe and efficient plumbing material is available from Flo-Tek branches and leading builders merchants throughout the SADC region and is BOBS and ISO 15877 certified. Flo-Tek products are BOBS, SABS, ISO 9001 certified and the company is a member of SAPPMA.
Property development/management company Time Projects and contractor Red East are also embracing technological innovation and have rolled out the C-PVC plumbing solution at Sesigo Mews, their newly completed residential, sectional title apartments in Block 5, Gaborone.
