New social housing development highlights affordability of Cobra products

When Imzi Housing constructed its new Fairview Links social housing development in Port Elizabeth, it looked to Cobra for tap ware. Not only did it want robust taps and mixers of the highest quality, but the products needed to be cost effective as well, in line with the parameters of the project as an affordable housing precinct.

Fairview Links provides 375 new, affordable rental apartments to low income earners in a project funded by the Department Of Human Settlements. It features studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units that are only available to qualifying candidates that earn between R2 500 and R7 500 per month.

Two Cobra ranges were specified for the development: Metsi and Noka. The products installed included 750 Metsi pillar taps and 750 Metsi stop taps and 375 units of each of the following, Noka sink mixers, Pretex shower roses, basin wastes, unslotted bath/sink wastes and bath filter overflows.

Both the Metsi and Noka ranges are part of Cobra’s Classic collection. Metsi brings an effortless simplicity to kitchens and bathrooms while Noka features traditional, sleek lines and optimal functionality. The affordability of the two ranges ensures great value for money.

This, says Inga Spence, Specifications Representative at Cobra, was one of the major drawcards that saw Cobra being specified for the project. “With the development being an affordable housing project, and given the quantities involved, a specific budget had to be met. Cobra’s products fell into that price bracket and offered the quality Imzi Housing was after,” she says.


The total project value to Cobra was R563 630.
