Approved Extract

The Eapro M Building Method is an upgradeable precast concrete building system which consists of:
precast and reinforced or prestressed concrete panels and special door and window panels which are bolted together;

The Eapro M building system can be upgraded by:

This Mantag certificate covers the use of the Eapro M Building System in selected areas in all climatic zones of Southern Africa for the erection of simple, single-storey buildings for the following uses:

Calculations show that dwellings smaller than 30 m2, which do not have ceilings and gypsum plasterboard lined walls will not meet Mantag thermal criteria. Such dwellings can therefore only be regarded as temporary shelters until they can be upgraded.

Mantag certificates are a distinct type of Agrément certificate, based on acceptable safety and health criteria for houses and related outbuildings, non-residential schools and primary health care centres in areas where the local authority is of the opinion that the type of construction is appropriate, given that in these areas it is of paramount importance that buildings be erected at the lowest possible cost.

If the conditions of this Mantag certificate are complied with, Agrément South Africa is of the opinion that the Eapro M building system will be fit-for-purpose, and can therefore be regarded as complying with the functional requirements related to safety and health contained in the National Building Regulations. In general, however, Mantag criteria permit a lesser level of performance than would be expected from buildings erected in accordance with the deemed-to-satisfy rules contained in SABS 0400-1990, The application of the National Building Regulations.
