Strand jack lifting is a process that utilizes hydraulic actions for lifting loads. If numerous strand jacks are assembled together, they can lift thousands of tons of load. A strand jack does not have a much weight if considered as individual machine, and also does not take up a lot of space. These devices are perfect for utilizing construction processes, where there might be a need to lift material weighing several tons.

Slipform is a the name given to the mould in which liquid concrete is poured, which moves continuously in order to harden the concrete. This technique of concrete hardening is used for construction, from apartments to sky scrapers, and roads to bridges. Different firms follow different methods of construction, but using slipform in the construction process is common among most. This method has a wide range of advantages, hence any construction project can hugely benefit from using this method!

Steel has been replacing a number of traditional materials used in demanding environments such as construction sites and manufacturing industries. Earlier, it was either wrought or cast iron that was used for building large metal structures. And steel was merely used for forging weapons and jewelry. However, with the advent of modern technology the steel manufacturing industry has seen major changes in its growth, due to varied benefits. Hence, it used for a wide range of purposes such as steel walls, steel tanks and much more. With the development in varied sectors, the purpose, quality, and quantity of steel tanks has been increasing. Read the following points to know more about the benefits, factors to consider and maintenance of tanks.

With increasing industrialization, using heavy onsite equipment and machines is very important to achieve productivity and efficiency (sciencedirect.com, CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION OF SUSTAINABLE ONSITE CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT, 2014).
Heavy machinery and other similar instruments are regarded to be necessities at most construction sites, without which it can be very difficult to carry out specific tasks and construction-based activities. Now, in case of high rise buildings and other structures, workers need to lift such machinery at great heights, so that the machines can be used via an in-situ basis. Hoisting up of these machines can be efficiently done by using different types of heavy lifting equipment. Few examples of such machines are rod climbers, strand jacks, building cranes, elevator systems. Using this equipment can prove to be highly beneficial to businesses, and would definitely ease the pressure on workers while they operate complex machines. The following points briefly few factors, which should be considered by businesses before investing in heavy lifting equipment.

Storage tanks are an important part of varied industries. Different types of storage cisterns and tanks can be generally found at construction sites, manufacturing plants, and similar locations. Depending on the size of the manufacturing plant or the construction site, businesses can select the types and number of tanks they require. Companies who especially need tanks for storing water, selecting steel tanks can be an appropriate option. These tanks made from steel not only last longer, but they also do not require much maintenance. Read the following points to understand the varied benefits of choosing steel tanks over concrete ones:

At most construction sites, there are several activities that are simultaneously carried out on a daily basis. Some of these activities require personnel to lift heavy machines, equipment’s, building materials, etc., up to a considerable height. This task requires construction businesses to use particular types of heavy lifting machines such as cranes, strand jacks, hydraulic pumps, etc. These machines make it considerably easy for businesses to carry out such activities. This can contribute towards improving work efficiency at the sites, and overall help to achieve good quality building and other man-made structures.
