Design & Detailed Engineering

Fibre-Wound employs a capable design team of qualified engineers,technicains, draftsmen, estimators and quantity surveyors who can design products in accordance with all internationally recognised standards, specifications and codes. It’s design department has a long history of working in conjunction with international project engineering companies in the pulp & paper, petrochemical, mining and corrosion resistant chemical plant and equipment industry. Designs are computer generated and drawings are prepared using AutoCAD and Solid Edge.  The majority of customer designs and drawings and Fibre-wound’s standard proprietary documentation are appraised and approved by independent government approved and SANAS accredited Approved Inspection Authorities (AIA) in accordance with SANS 10227 and SANS 347.
