Staying Strong with Long-lasting Building Products
The recent devastating earthquakes of Turkey and Syria shook the entire world. Much of the blame behind the calamity went to real estate developers who constructed buildings without proper compliance and used subpar materials. This was the case even for luxury properties advertised as having high-quality design and construction. For disaster-prone countries such as Bangladesh, global issues such as earthquakes and climate change serve as wake-up calls for enhanced resilience and disaster management. This article will serve as a reminder that we indeed have amazing building products in Bangladesh that provide extensive durability, safety, and high quality of construction even when tackling a calamity.
Concrete Hollow Blocks
Concrete hollow blocks are no less than a knight in shining armor. When the whole world is busy polluting the air, Bangladesh is helping curb climate change with eco-friendly products despite being a developing country with limited resources. Hollow blocks are completely machine-made, using raw materials that are readily available and easily recycled. They have hollow centers that prevent heat buildup during the summer and also create soundproof structures. The result is an energy-efficient structure that can withstand weather conditions. These cavities also allow rods and cables to pass through, which means the structure can be quickly reinforced for more strength. Hollow blocks can be stacked on top of each other with less water and mortar, reducing construction costs and time as well. Salinity content is lower in hollow blocks, which makes them more durable and humidity-resistant. Since their production does not create pollution, concrete hollow blocks are hailed as the eco-friendly alternative to traditional red bricks. Their overall weight is also lower than red bricks, making the building lightweight and more earthquake-resistant.
Pavement tiles can be manufactured on demand, but they typically measure 8 by 4 inches and come in thicknesses of 60, 70, 80, and 90 mm. You can even choose the design and pattern based on the theme and color palette of your building. In fact, the building will have an even more appealing aesthetic. These tiles can handle immense pressure, making them durable and tough in every condition. That’s why they are ideally used in footpaths, walkways, pavements, and parking lots. The tiles have very little salinity and are environmentally friendly. They allow rainwater to seep into the underlying soil to keep the surface dry. As a result, they can be utilized in garden walkways as well. Our professionals put pavement tiles through thorough testing. Even in risky situations, they are intended to improve building quality and durability.
Unipavers are also flooring materials used outside, such as on pavements, footpaths, and driveways, but they are not like tiles. The unipavers can be altered to suit the customer’s needs in terms of size, design, and aesthetics. These variables affect the price as well. Buildings such as parking lots, basements, industrial yards, gasoline stations, and internal roads can all be constructed using unipavers. Unipavers are also tough and durable enough to handle intense pressure and weather conditions. These can be removed via sand filling after many years of use, and the road can then be made wider. Unipavers are an efficient way to repair damaged carpets in remote regions. Like hollow blocks and pavement tiles, they are also manufactured by machines, guaranteeing maximum environmental friendliness throughout construction.
Long-lasting construction that withstands the test of time, unstable climate, and natural calamities is still a dream beyond reach. With these products, Bangladesh can avail affordable construction using materials designed to last and protect from destruction. A big obstacle is awareness. It is crucial for everyone, including small realtors and construction agencies to understand eco-friendly building products and use them extensively throughout the country.
