Quality Waterproofing Systems For South Africa
Gast has been providing waterproofing systems for South Africa’s industry and commerce for more than 50 years. Our head office and head of operations is based in Centurion. With more than half a century’s experience in this field we have gained a lot of knowledge and skill of our areas of expertise which we are happy to share with our customers and help them benefit their own businesses from our experience.
We understand the challenges faced by our customers who include engineers, construction companies and designers to protect their buildings and work areas from the effects of water. We believe that even though waterproofing systems and protection features as a somewhat minor element of the costs associated with the overall construction of the building, it is nonetheless a fundamentally crucial component in the success of any project and will have a direct impact on the building’s longevity.

We are at the forefront of incorporating the latest technologies in the manufacturing and production process of our waterproofing materials.
