Alternative to wooden doors &windows

 





                                      Alternative to wooden doors &windows


Wood is the most popular choice for construction of door and window frames. Wooden frames give architectural beauty to the building and are easy to maintain. There are many types of wood according to the quality. The type of wood is used according to the requirement of the building and availability of budget.

When people think off wood works in house first preference will go fo TEAK wood ,because of its durability compared to other woods .Teak has been widely used in India for more than 2,000 years for making wood works in house and and other constructiuons . An important property of teak is its extremely good dimensional stability. 
Due to the increased cost of woods available people tends to move towards alternatives. Some times the alternate method was more strong than wood based mechanism. A good example is the building's roofs
Now a day construction costs are very high. There is many reasons behind this hike in cost especially the 
1. Cost of construction materials.
2. Increase in labour cost 
3. Transportation cost ….. etc .
So the people they need economical construction will go for alternatives. 
Here I am presenting alternatives for some commonly used building materials.
 Wood door/window frames with concrete frames.By using concrete frames instead of wood frames can reduce cost of wood by 60%.While building homes people are spending lot of money on wood works to forms door/window frames..Why they can use steel aluminium frames instead of this wood ? . Because they like traditionals and they will not accept the less thickened aluminium or steel frames even though they have the same capabilities in terms fo strength and more thermal resistance compared to wood. 
An alternative which compensates for the above two shortfalls of aluminium and steel door and window frames is the usage of concrete doors and window frames.
These Door Frames are available in variety of sizes and shapes to meet the exact requirements of the variety uses, features like durability, termite resistance and impressive looks. Moreover, these products are also available at market leading prices. Usually the section is 60x100mm and 4mm ms bar used for reinforcement. The approximate wait of one door frame is about 14kg

A window frame of size 150cm x 150cm, including grills and three partitions will cost only 10% of the cost of the same window pane made of wood (Teak). For door frames also the cost saving will be on these lines. 
Aesthetically it will provide same appeal as of wood frames ,and we will get some additional qualities like thermal resistance and termite resistance . Some precautions need to be taken while selecting concrete doors and window frames which are listed below. 
1. Wood blocks for fixing hinges and locks.
It is difficult to drill holes for screwing in nails in concrete frames. So for fixing the hinges and locks which is to be screwed tight, wooden blocks will be inserted the areas where these need to be fixed. These blocks will be inserted in the mould itself so that when the concrete hardens this forms an integral part of the system. 


2. Do not use the frame near kitchen sink, bath room or areas which come to contact with water 
Use it for internal door frames bed room windows .do not use it for external areas 
Don’t sue for bath rooms, use PVC door and frames is the best choice 
3 Use paint to protect from degradation and to get good appeal
When painting ensures that enough putty is used in order to reduce the imperfections and damages made by transportation and this will give good finish like wood. 
4 Decide the window grill design before making the mould/frame ,after casting we cannot put even a simple design into the frame .Fist make design for grills and give holes in mould to incorporate.

The carpenters they will not agree to opinion because they will lose a chance for job.

INTERLOCKING BRICKS, LOW COST CONSTRUCTION METHODS

 Inter Locking Bricks (INTERLOCKING BRICKS)


We can see that our construction technology and construction materials existed here about a thousand years ago. However, our manufacturing industry is still very well-equipped and sometimes very important. This is where there is a need to switch to construction methods such as cheap INTERLOCKING BRICKS.


INTERLOCKING BRICKS is an important low cost construction method that now exists in Kerala. The wall is built by locking each other like a name. So we can reduce cement and sand use


Red soil, which contains at least twenty per cent clay, is used to make INTER LOCKING BRICKS, which is compressed into moulds with a certain proportion of cement GRAVEL and some chemicals to keep it scattered. It will have about 5.5 N/CM2 COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

.

Quality 

This can generate a profit of about 30-35% over building a house using other common means.

1. PLASTERING & amp; PAINTING essential.

2. Can be installed very easily

 

Disadvantages 

1. Electric wire cannot drill through the wall and pipe like normal walls

2. Cannot be used as LOAD BEARING WALL above two floors.

3. It is best to plaster or paint where water is likely to fall on the outer walls or cause it to collapse and fade colour.

4. EXPERIENCED workers are required

INTERLOCKING BRICKS, LOW COST CONSTRUCTION METHODS (ഇന്റർ ലോക്കിംഗ് ബ്രിക്ക്സ്)

ഇന്റർ ലോക്കിംഗ് ബ്രിക്ക്സ്  (INTERLOCKING BRICKS)


 നമ്മുടെ നിർമ്മാണ സാങ്കേതികതയും  നിർമ്മാണ സാമഗ്രികളും ഏതാണ്ട് ആയിരം വര്ഷങ്ങള്ക്ക് മുൻപ് തന്നെ ഇവിടെ നിലനിന്നിരുന്നതായി  നമുക്ക് കാണാൻ കഴിയും. എന്നിരുന്നാലും ഇപ്പോഴും  വളരെ സങ്കീർന്നവും  ചിലവേ റിയയതുമാണ് നമ്മുടെ നിര്മ്മാണ വ്യവസായം. ഇവിടെയാണ് ചിലവുകുറഞ്ഞ INTERLOCKING BRICKS   പോലെയുള്ള നിര്മ്മാണ രീതികളിലേക്ക് മാറേണ്ടുന്നതിന്റെ ആവശ്യകത.

കേരളത്തിൽ  ഇപ്പോൾ നിലനില്കുന പ്രധാനപ്പെട്ട ഒരു ലോ കോസ്റ്റ്  നിര്മ്മാണ രീതി   ആണ് INTERLOCKING BRICKS ഉപയോഗിച്ചുള്ളത്  . പേരുപോലെ തന്നെ പരസ്പരം ലോക്ക് ചെയ്താണ് ഇതുപയോഗിച്ചു ഭിത്തി നിര്മ്മിക്കുന്നത്. അതുകൊണ്ട് തന്നെ സിമന്റ്‌, മണൽ ഉപയോഗം കുറയ്ക്കാനും കഴിയും

ഇരുപതു ശതമാനമെങ്കിലും ക്ലേ  അടങ്ങിയിട്ടുള്ള ചുവന്ന മണ്ണ് ആണ് INTER LOCKING BRICKS ഉണ്ടാക്കുവാൻ ഉപയോഗിക്കുന്നത്.ഇതിൽ ഒരു പ്രത്യേക അനുപാതത്തിൽ സിമന്റ്‌  GRAVEL, ചിതലരിക്കതിരിക്കാനുള്ള ചില  കെമിക്കൽസ്‌  എന്നിവ  ചേർത്ത്  അച്ചുകളിൽ കംപ്രസ്സ് ചെയ്തു വാർതെടുക്കുന്നു. ഇതിനു ഏകദേശം  5.5 N/CM2  COMPRESSIVE  STRENGTH  ഉണ്ടാവും
.
ഗുണം 
സാധാരണ മറ്റു മാർഗങ്ങൾ ഉപയോഗിച്ച് വീട് നിർമ്മിക്കുന്നതിനെക്കാൾ ഏകദേശം 30-35 % ലാഭം ഉണ്ടാക്കുവാൻ ഇതു മൂലം സാധിക്കുന്നതാണ്.
1. PLASTERING & PAINTING  അവശ്യം ഇല്ല.
2. വളരെ എളുപ്പത്തിൽ ഇൻസ്റ്റോൾ ചെയ്യാവുന്നതാണ്
 
ദോഷങ്ങൾ 
1. ഇലക്ട്രിക്  വയരിങ്ങിനു നോർമൽ ഭിത്തികളിലെപോലെ  ഭിത്തി തുരന്നു പൈപ്പ് ഇടുവാൻ സാധിക്കുന്നതല്ല
2.രണ്ടു നിലക്ക് മുകളിലേക്ക് LOAD BEARING WALL  ആയി ഉപയോഗിക്കുവാൻ കഴിയുകയില്ല .
3.പുറം ഭിത്തികളിൽ വെള്ളം വീഴാൻ സാധ്യതയുള്ളിടത്  പ്ലാസ്റ്റർ  ചെയ്യുകയോ പെയിന്റ് അടിക്കുകയോ  ചെയ്യുന്നതാണ്‌ ഉത്തമം അല്ലെങ്കിൽ അടർന്നു വീഴുവാനും നിറം മങ്ങാനും  ഇടയാകും.
4. EXPERIENCED ആയിട്ടുള്ള തൊഴിലാളികൾ  ആവശ്യമായി വരുന്നു
