Allen Associates Surveying Instruments South Africa and COVID-19 Lockdown

Allen Associates surveying instruments South Africa will continue providing remote support and assistance within the surveying industry.

We are aware that construction operations have been under lockdown with incremental relaxation of the conditions only commencing after month end.

However, certain areas of business can continue functioning from remote locations, especially with the advanced technology available to us.

The health emergency has undoubtedly placed immense pressure on job security in South Africa as well as the economy as a whole.

We have fully supported the President’s swift decision as an approach to flatten the curve, yet major financial implications are increasingly apparent.

The lockdown parameter is indiscriminate and applies to construction projects that were yet to begin as well as those that were well underway.

We believe the construction industry has a particularly strong potential to create employment opportunities that may absorb some of the economic aftermath of COVID-19 in our country.

In light of this, the Construction COVID-19 Rapid Response Task Team (CCRR 19TT) serves to represent all major organisations in the construction sector including:


  • Contractors
  • Property developers
  • Construction professionals
  • Suppliers
  • Service providers


The CCRR 19TT submitted a request which motivates the approval of a phased reactivation of the construction sector, beginning with immediate reactivation of live construction sites that were in various phases of completion at the start of South Africa’s lockdown period.

Remote Support from Allen Associates

However, until this submission has received approval, the sector remains closed, and Allen Associates will continue providing remote assistance and or support wherever possible.

Our telephone lines and email communications remain wide open and we welcome any queries that our clients may have.

We will continue to provide sales quotations both online and telephonically to all of our local and cross-border clients.

Nuclear radiation services and special PPE

Where appropriate as an essential service, we will respond to Troxler accidents or incidents on a 24/7 basis.

The Allen’s Hazmat Group IV Substances road-freight service will recommence immediately after the lockdown has been lifted.

Fresh stocks of the latest infrared thermometers on order display precise body temperatures within a fraction of a second and are vital for the protection of construction teams and clientele. We will attend to existing backorders as our priority.
