The World we live

& work in

Not quite what it seems!


Modern


Pleasurable


Industrious


Technologically Advanced


BUT………………


DANGER AND MAJOR LOSSES

LURK IN ALMOST EVERY

BUILDING!!!


Over 60 years of case histories, and research studies by top authorities in a number of fields worldwide, have revealed an ever worsening crisis and alarmingly dangerous long-term property related trend in many parts of the world.


A number of very hazardous and costly factors related to buildings, roofs, structures and properties have been identified and warned about repeatedly.


FIRE


DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF REGULAR FIRE CONSULTANT INSPECTIONS, COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATES, FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ETC.

MOST BUILDINGS CONTAIN UNSEEN VERY HIGH RISKS OF MAJOR FIRES AND BURNOUTS!


CORROSION

Many Billions of Rands are being lost by corrosion and weathering losses and damages


Long-term neglect, and incorrect ventilation, material and repair specifications, caused this Wadeville factory roof and structure to fail very dangerously, less than halfway through its projected lifespan.


This gutter could have easily collapsed and flooded out the entire factory!

Dangerously and Expensively FAILED box gutter !!!

This was caused by SUBSTANDARD repair work !!!


COLLAPSE

Risk of collapsing buildings and roofs due to illegally non-compliant structures


TOXIC

Severe risks to life and health, due to the widespread use of biohazardous asbestos…


As well as the extensive presence in many buildings of very flammableinsulating and other materials that burn very aggressively and spread major fires rapidly!!


And which in many cases can release life threatening quantities of deadly hydrogen-cyanide gas!!!


This very common roof and building insulating foam has killed hundreds of workers…


Other very dangerous elements found to be very common in buildings include:

Overlooked legal  transgressions which could result in prosecution, fines and jail sentences !!


Roofs (old and new), being ripped off in high winds!!


Extensive leaking and flooding of buildings and

properties


INDUSTRY SKILLS LOSS CRISIS

Essential roof and building remedial and maintenance skills have long since declined to the point where hiring non professionally-screened contractors can be a major disaster and risk/loss factor in itself!


Misinformation?

These very hazardous elements are very frequently found in roofs and buildings that have been regularly inspected and signed-off by “experts” as allegedly safe and legally compliant.


“Any company that owns or manages a large portfolio of Properties, is very probably in the middle of a massive asset damage, SHE risk, legal compliance and financial loss crisis, without even realizing that anything is seriously wrong”.

ARTF Public Information Bulletin 2009


The Star

“The extreme costs, inconveniences, safety (issues), risks, and other liabilities associated with long-term … neglect and a “false economy” roof (and building) maintenance policy, are no longer acceptable…

This situation has, from a company profitability and

sustainability point of view, reached critical proportions”.

ARTF quote from the “The Star” newspaper, front page, Property

Section – 16 June 2008


Old solutions have become part of the problem! 


  • Extensive senior level research has also shown that the majority of solutions being offered on the market place are in factNOT resolving these risks, losses and problems safely, affordably and sustainably.


DANGEROUSLY FAILED AND COLLAPSED ROOF AND STRUCTURE, FROM NEGLECT AND PATCH -FIXING!


As we technologically advance so do the solutions needed to fully resolve those problems.

A quick-fix is just that – a Quick fix.  Then that Quick-fix becomes the next immediate serious and very costly problemto resolve. 

Problems are only resolved by in-depth investigations to get the exact solution to that specific problem and then ensuring that the exact solution is correctly and fully applied.


This is True for

Buildings,

Roofs

and

LIFE !


THIS VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION HAS BECOME GREATLY WORSENED BY LONGTERM SPIRALING BUILDING MATERIAL, CONTRACTING AND ENGINEERING COSTS – TO THE POINT WHERE MOST COMPANIES CANNOT AFFORD TO CORRECTLY REPAIR AND MAINTAIN THEIR ROOFS AND BUILDINGS–

BUT TO NEGLECT OR PATCH FIX THESE PROPERTIES WILL BECOME EVEN MORE UNAFFORDABLE AND PROBLEMATIC IN THE END!

THIS SEEMS TO CREATE AN UNSOLVABLE CRISIS FOR A GREAT MANY COMPANIES TODAY, IN THESE HARD ECONOMIC TIMES!


The Really Good News

The very cost-effective and advanced level ARTF-SCRACE building and roof remedial and maintenance system can lead to a full resolution to all of these risks and problems, and could save tens or even hundreds of millions of Rands in maintenance, damages and legal costs.
