Kelbrick’s Contribution to Reduce Rhino Poaching

Kelbrick’s Contribution to Reduce Rhino Poaching

Kelbrick’s Roof Trusses was recently approached by Nico Jacobs from Rhino 911 (Rhino911NPO Facebook) to assist in designing, building and installing a helicopter hanger roof in Kameeldrift Country Estate in Brits.  To keep with the aesthetics of the estate, the hanger had to have a truss-assisted tile roof.

The roof truss structure of 15 metres with concrete roof tiles covering, were erected from 21st to 24th October 2016 and the tiles were laid on 2nd and 3rd of November 2016.  

There are only 20,000 rhinos left in Africa and losing some three a day to poaching, rhinos would be extinct in the wild within 10-20 years. With the new hanger sorted, Nico’s rhino poaching protection with the Bell 407 Helicopter can continue without further concern about his assets.  

This is just another example that Kelbrick can tackle any new challenge head-on – no matter what kind of roof trusses or the purpose.
