Cobra’s modern taps and medical mixers impress in Mpumalanga projects

Cobra’s extensive range of products suited to commercial and medical applications combined with its excellent value for money offering and after-sale service saw this icon once again being specified as the preferred plumbing brand in a string of successful new projects recently concluded in Mpumalanga.

Cobra’s classically styled and easily adaptable Stella range came up trumps, with its collection of mixers being specified for the new Audi showrooms (to the value of R100 000), Northern Platinum offices (value R350 000) and Corridor Hill office block. In addition, Cobra’s stalwart and highly durable Star range of taps and mixers were included in the two office projects.

With their environmentally friendly features, robust functionality and state-of-the-art technology, Cobra’s chic Damara taps and mixers offered the perfect fit for the revamped Highveld Mall in eMalahleni (Witbank). Over and above its mixers, Cobra’s Flushmaster flushvalves were also specified at Northern Platinum and Highveld Mall.

Cobra is renowned for its exclusive range of elbow action medical taps, mixers and plumbers brassware. All the pieces in this range are manufactured from polished dezincification resistant (DZR) brass, a copper alloy that surpasses the minimum copper content required for acceptance as an antimicrobial copper fitting. Antimicrobial copper is considered the most effective antimicrobial touch surface material in the world, known for its role in helping to reduce the spread of disease.

The medical mixers were used in four new projects: the Witbank Eye Clinic (value R600 000); the Medi-Clinic in Nelspruit  (value R240 000), the Piet Retief Mortuary (value R200 000) and the private offices of gynaecologist and obstetrician, Dr Tony Bamagboye, in Nelspruit (value R100 000).

Cobra’s Gala mixers with their side-mounted handles and flow restrictors for optimal water efficiency were also specified for the mortuary and eye clinic projects as well as the Medi-Clinic, which further made use of touch-free electronic mixers. Along with the medical and Gala mixers, the mortuary project also included Stella Square, Carina and Star taps and mixers.

Marco Texeira, senior architectural technologist at Alchemy Architects, the firm responsible for the design of the new Audi dealership, said Cobra was the natural choice for the stylish new showroom. “Cobra’s Stella range has a clean, aesthetically pleasing look that worked hand in hand with the design of the building,” he says. “The fit and standard of the products were of a very high quality, which made them ideal for this project where all elements were of a high standard. Cobra is also an established brand, so you have peace of mind when specifying its products.”
