Crealco / Wispeco - The best in Aluminium
We only use Crealco products from Wispeco. BEWARE OF IMITATIONS!! – Make sure your manufacturer uses only Crealco products.
Crealco Aluminium Extrusions is a brand of Wispeco. We do not use any sub standard products or grey imports in our manufacturing process. Crealco is by far the best Aluminium products available in South Africa and backed by Wispeco which is the largest Aluminium extruder in Africa.
All Wispeco Aluminium’s Crealco products are type tested by AAAMSA’s (Architectural Aluminium Association of South Africa) SANAS accredited test rig and SAFIERA’s (South African Fenestration, Insulation Energy Rating Association) rotatable guarded hot box for mechanical and energy efficiency performance compliance.
Fenestration products installed in South African buildings have to comply with South African Building Regulations. Furthermore property owners require quality lasting aluminium products in their buildings. Crealco products offer both if:
- Products are designed using Crealco design software for compliance and quality assurance;
- Fabricated using genuine Wispeco material (beware of imitations);
- Industry precautionary and Wispeco fabrication guidelines are followed and
- The products are maintained correctly.
There are four main sections of South African Building Legislation that windows and doors of any material need to comply with, namely:
- SANS 10400 N – The application of the National Building Regulations Part N: Safety Glazing
- SANS 613 – Fenestration products: Mechanical/Structural performance criteria
- SANS 10400 XA – The application of the National Building Regulations Part XA : Energy usage in buildings
- SANS 204 – Energy efficiency of buildings
