Acknowledging the need for fast tracking building and thermal insulation solutions, and importantly energy conservation in South Africa, Global Specialised Systems, as an owner-managed distribution business, is constantly challenged to meet all these requirements as effectively and professionally as possible. Our strategic alliances with supply collaborates made us an effective role player in our respective markets for the last 24 years.

Key to the customers and eventually our success is the on-going research and development of the latest range of products and services available. As members of TIASA (Thermal Insulation Association of Southern Africa) and SASFA (South African Steel Frame Association) it gives us access to forums essential for keeping our customers abreast of the latest local developments of which the new energy efficient standards for buildings are the most relevant.
