Prefabricated Houses in South Africa

With a population of more than 1.3 billion by the end of 2020, the two most obvious problems facing Africa’s surging population are housing and jobs.
Among them, railway, highway, port, construction, and other urbanization construction needs to meet the work needs.
When constructing these buildings, the living and dining environment of the workers must be considered.
Our prefabricated houses can help solve this problem for people in Africa.

Prefabricated Houses Market Situation in Africa

The backward technology of the African’s own building materials industry is destined to rely on imports for most of its building materials, but the high prices of imported building materials from Europe and the United States discourage the African public.
Relatively speaking, China’s building materials products, production equipment, and construction machinery meet the needs of African people in terms of product varieties, qualities and prices.

The African building materials market has great business opportunities. Although many African countries develop their own construction and manufacturing industries by importing and exporting processing machinery and importing processing technology, in the short term, they cannot meet their needs due to insufficient foundation and technical constraints. Therefore, for Chinese building materials manufacturers, Africa is a market with huge potential and ideal benefits.

So how do local businesses purchase products?

  1. Commodity source:
    Most businesses import goods from China, and most of their products are made in China。
  2. Frequency of imported products:
    Quarterly or half-yearly.
  3. Product and Quality Issues:
    Not only need low-priced products, more and more customers are beginning to pay attention to the quality and performance of the products.

Affirmative of the diversity of products, because in Africa, many countries have very few factories in their own countries that can produce these products.
It is believed that with the entry of more Chinese companies and the development of China’s “One Belt One Road”, the overall economic strength of Africa will be greatly improved, and it will also seek development directions for more Chinese companies that are interested in taking the path of “going out”.
The future is an era of economic globalization, as well as an era of logistics globalization!

  8. Environmental protection: The house is designed reasonably, can be disassembled and assembled many times, and the loss rate of disassembly and assembly is extremely low, and the disassembly and assembly does not produce construction waste.
  9. Diversified types: The houses use standardized components, and both length and width are based on K (1K=1820mm) as the modulus.

Different Types of Prefab Modular Homes South Africa

There are two kinds of prefab homes: One is K-type prefab house, the other is T-type Prefab House
The differences between them:

  1. K-type prefab house is cheaper than T-type prefab house;
  2. The installation speed of K-type prefab house is 50% faster than the T-type prefab house.
  3. The T-type prefab house is more stable and strong than K-type prefab house.
  4. The K-type prefab house has standrad size, and the K-factor is the basic unit (K=1820mm) to from the length and width.
    The size of T-type prefab house is not fixed and can be customized.
  5. The biggest difference between them is whether the steel frame is visible.
