RSC

Consistent world class industrial services across the African continent.

The turnkey solution with more than 30 years’ experience.

Who are we?

The RSC group was founded in 1987 by Louis Glen Sacks. Originally offering abrasive blasting and protective coatings through the jobbing facility in Krugersdorp. RSC has evolved organically into an industrial services provider, delivering full turnkey industrial solutions on projects across the African continent. Offering services such as Scaffolding, Sheeting, Denso Wrapping, Hot and Cold Insulation, HP & UHP Cleaning, Concrete Rehabilitation and Fire Protection, Rand Sandblasting is now a well-known name and often the supplier of choice.

Our services

Abrasive Blasting

The RSC head office hosts the largest blasting yard in Southern Africa and a portion of all steel fabricated for Africa will inevitably pass through this facility. Surface preparation is the most important part of the Corrosion Protection process. In other words;  “surface preparation” is to a coating system what a foundation is to a building.

Industrial Painting

RSC Specialises in application of  industrial paints within numerous mining, oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation and industrial environments. Whether its working at heights or in confined spaces ,RSC has the experience to deliver quality workmanship safely  in the most extreme environments.

Concrete Rehabilitation

Corrosion protection is not only imperative to steel structures but also to concrete within the industrial environment. RSC has developed the expertise to provide rehabilitation to corroded concrete structures using rehabilitative products and where necessary executing new builds.

Hot, Cold & Acoustic Insulation

RSC Specialises in insulation (thermal and acoustic). Our Thermal Insulation Division offers the supply and expert application of both hot & cold insulation systems. Experience includes hot and cold solutions for the mining, power, petro-chemical, paper, sugar and oil and gas industries. Cladding can be developed in aluminum, stainless and galvanized products.

Industrial Sheeting

RSC are specialists in the supply and installation of Sheeting to all forms of Industries.  Our Sheeting crew are specialised Sheeting Applicators and can work off Scaffolding and do installations with Rope Access.  We maintain a strict safety record with a low risk factor on all our projects. 

Fire Protection

RSC is approved and trained in the application of fireproofing materials. This includes intumescent, void/penetration sealants and fire stopping materials for cable racks.

Rope Access

RSC specialises in Rope Access Techniques to access areas that cannot be reached by Scaffolding or any other forms of access.

Pigging

RSC provides pipe pigging services for inspection, desludging and maintenance purposes. Pigging reduces the environmental impact of cleaning operations whilst reducing the loss of product and it avoids the need for line flushing.

Pigs allow for separation of products in pipeline, internal cleaning of the line, Inline inspection of internal walls and capturing of geometric information relating to pipes.

RSC Yard

RSC is proud to have the largest corrosion protection facility of its kind in Africa. This vast facility boasts an operational area of 142 000m² as well as 6 000m² of under-cover facilities. Additional resources include 10 Tower Cranes, 4 Mobi Lift Cranes and a 50 ton Mobile Crane, enabling the facility a throughput of 2 000 tons of steel per month.

One rotating boom and two internal pipe booms provide for any piping applications.

The rubber lining plant includes two autoclaves (14M x 1.8M Dia) & (7.5M x 2.2M Dia) and a dedicated undercover rubber lining processing facility with holding capability of 100 Rolls and production of 2000m² per month.

Corrosion Protection

The aim of corrosion protection is to influence the rate at which oxidation occurs, resulting in less corrosion over a longer period and extending the life of the asset and ensuring structural integrity, thereby minimizing maintenance.

Scaffolding

Due to the demands for access, the provision of scaffold was a logical and organic service add-on for the Group. With the increase in maintenance and project work for the petrochemical and power-generation industries scaffolding has become a core RSC service.

Secondary Containment & Acid Proof Linings

RSC specialises in the Design, Supply and Application of Acid Proof Linings. 

Typically utilised for acid tanks, CIL areas and bund containment areas, RSC can provide the most robust systems capable or withstanding the corrosive elements and thermal shock effects associated with the most aggressive acids.

HP & UHP Cleaning

Widely accepted as an environmentally sound alternative to abrasive blasting. RSC has the expertise and equipment available to perform HP & UHP Water Jetting operating at pressures ranging between 68bar and 2800 bar.

Denso Steel Protection

RSC can provide a wide range of applications of

anti-corrosion protection systems to steelwork, tanks  and plant.

Rubber Lining

We supply wear and corrosion protection on chutes, piping, and tanks using high wear-resistant natural rubber.  This can be applied on-site or at our workshop.

Asbestos Removal

RSC enjoys accreditation from the department of Labour as a registered asbestos contractor. We offer legally compliant and safe asbestos removal by experienced staff.

The prolific use of asbestos in the past and its recognition as a serious health hazard has necessitated a structured safe procedure to remove and isolate
