Why Kwalkraft is the Best Tube Manipulation Specialist
Wonder why Kwalkraft is the best tube manipulation specialist in South Africa?
Kwalkraft is South Africa’s premier manufacturer of shower seats, automotive components, toilet flush pipes, grab rails and pipes used in the marine industry.
The company was first established in 1987 as Ritz Metal Art, the company was acquired by the Ekermans family in 1993. At this point, the name was changed to Kwalkraft Metal Art, to fit in with the Kwalkraft brand of the family’s other business: a high-end joinery, specializing in the construction of solid wood fittings and furniture.
Kwalkraft now specialises in tube manipulation and manufactures our own range of high-end stainless steel grab rails, for use by the elderly as well as physically challenged individuals. Apart from the standard grab rails, we also build customized rails to cater for situations where standard products are unsuitable.
Since then our products have been used in several high-profile construction projects, such as the Table Bay Hotel; the Cape Town International Convention Centre; Canal Walk shopping centre; and the international terminal at Cape Town Airport, to name but a few.
To date, the biggest project that we have been involved with has been the refurbishment / expansion of the Lentegeur Hospital in Mitchell’s Plein. We have even supplied our products to a hotel development in Malawi. Our most memorable projects were a range of customized brass grab rails designed and manufactured for the late President Nelson Mandela and the refurbishment of bathrooms for the late Jan Picard, who was a former Springbok rugby player and founder of Picardi Liquors.
Apart from the fabrication of shower seats, grab rails and custom designed door pull handles, we have also increased the scope of our operations to provide tube manipulation services to companies that manufacture products for the automotive, marine and industrial sectors. In this respect, our most notable achievement has been the redevelopment of exhaust manifolds used on Auto Futura CAV’s kit version of Ford’s legendary GT40 sports cars. For the marine industry, we provide bending services to most of Cape Town’s prominent boat builders, as well as firms that specialize in the construction of recompression chambers that are used by both commercial and military divers.
This proves that Kwalkraft is more than capable, experienced, and trusted to get the job done. Whatever your needs may be, we trust that you will find our highly trained and motivated team able to provide you with excellent service and products of unsurpassed quality.
