What makes aircraft hangars tensile structure so attractive?

Aircraft hangar tensile structure? Really? It could be surprising, we know, but it’s not rare. A fun fact: tensile materials were first invented to be used as coatings for aerospace items. So it must not come as a shock that tensile structures are being used in the construction of aircraft hangers. If you have been thinking that how can a flexible, lightweight and elastic material turn as a shed for aero planes, you have been getting it all wrong. In this brief blog we will explain why. We will also list out some of the properties of tensile structure that makes them fit to be used as cover for this huge flying machine. Read on.

  • It’s elastic and flexible – but that doesn’t mean its liquid. In fact, elasticity helps a lot in forming new shapes and designs. As you already know, tensile structure is nothing but a combination of curves balanced by a force of tension. The flexibility offered by tensile materials makes their cutting, welding and forming easier.

 

  • Prefabrication aids quicker installation – imagine that you ordered an aircraft hangar and it was delivered to you within a week. Won’t that be wonderful? A typical brick and mortar structure would at least take a month or two if not longer. Tensile structure, being constructed by prefabrication, makes their completion faster. It’s a process in which a big structure is disintegrated into smaller units and each unit is fabricated simultaneously and at different locations. When they are done, all that you have to do is bring them back to the destination and assemble them together. It’s that easy.

 

  • Durability is its plus point – an average tensile structure can easily last for at least 10-15 years thanks to their exceptional resistance to weather elements, chemical reactions etc. Some like ETFE are resilient to UV rays as well. If maintained properly, they can last even longer. A good value of your money, don’t you think?

 

  • Strong and beautiful – many of the tensile materials possess a very high ultimate tensile strength and elongation at breakage. Furthermore, they can be easily be manufactured in multitude of colors and elegant designs. All this qualities don’t just make them very attractive but also valuable.

4 Benefits of Swimming Pool Tensile Cover — November 29, 2017

4 Benefits of Swimming Pool Tensile Cover

Do you own a swimming pool? Do you like paddling up and down your pool under the shade from the sun? Have you heard about swimming pool tensile cover? Yes? No? No problem. We are here to help you out. While it’s true that not all of us are blessed with a sprawling swimming pool in our backyard, some among us, who indeed are, find it utterly useless when the sun goes overhead. Is the scourge of summer sun keeping you out? If it is, it’s about to change.

It is particularly very difficult to construct a swimming pool cover made from brick concrete, courtesy huge cost and much time involved. But it’s not time to lose your hope yet. With swimming pool tensile cover, you can solve this twin problem of cost and time with one stroke, along with getting a lot of benefits. In this blog, we will list out at least 4 advantages of using a tensile cover over your swimming pool. Read on.

  • At a fraction of cost and time – it is a well-known fact that tensile structures cost a fraction and take a lot less time in fabrication and installation when compared to a conventional structure. Let’s face it, no one wants to spend a lot on a structure as insignificant as a swimming pool cover. It’s precisely the reason why very few have their pools covered and it’s also the reason why you are searching for a tensile cover.
  • Cool and beautiful – tensile materials (used in fabrication of tensile structure) being elastic and flexible can be wrought into different shapes and designs. They are also very amenable to decoration. All this features provides swimming pool tensile covers with a far better look and appeal.
  • Longevity – many of the raw materials viz. polymers, fibers etc. display a marked ability to resist the impact and weather elements. Some like ETFE are known for their excellent UV resistance. Few like TiO2 coated PTFE are flame retardant as well and some others like PVC are inert to chemical attacks. All this go a long way in increasing the durability of swimming pool tensile covers. An average tensile structure can easily last for at least 15-20 years.
  • Light transmission–Tensile materials are known for their exceptional light transmission capabilities. Most of them allow lights to pass through them easily. This is not just helpful in reducing your daylight lighting bills but also crucial for aesthetic lightings during nights.

What is the difference between – a patio, deck, pergola and gazebo? — November 27, 2017

What is the difference between – a patio, deck, pergola and gazebo?

Gone are the days when houses used to be a somber assemble of burnt bricks and dried plasters. With the advent of tensile structures and innovation in building architects, the very design and utility of homes and their adjoining outdoor spaces are witnessing a sea change. With the introduction of new structures like patio, deck, gazebo and pergola, the landscape of simple home has changed forever. But many a times, we find it difficult to differentiate between these terms. Through this blog, we will try to make their meanings a little more clear.

top

Patio – derived by the Spanish word Patio, which means the courtyard of the house or building. But the English term is different from the courtyard because unlike them, a patio need not be surrounded by walls. There can be different types of patio designs patio umbrella like detached patio, wraparound patio, entry patio etc. They can be made from different materials like concrete, pavers, flagstone, rock etc. Keeping in mind the surrounding landscape, their designs can be adjusted accordingly.

Deck – Unlike Patios, a deck is mainly made from wood or composite wood materials. If designed properly, they can be as beautiful and useful as any other structure. Like patios, decks can be designed either as a freestanding structure or as an extension of existing building. In any case, it is best suited beside the swimming pool.

Unlike patio and deck, which are meant to act as an extension to your home, Pergola and gazebo are constructed to serve as a place for congregation and relaxation. They are usually constructed over a patio or a deck but can remain independent as well.

Pergola – It is a square or rectangle shaped structure with pillars supporting cross-beams and an open lattice, forming a shaded walkway, passageway or sitting area. They are a common sight in desert climates but are being used increasingly in other places as well. The arrangement of cross beams over a horizontal bar imparts it exceptional strength while serving as supports for creepers and vines.

Gazebo – Unlike pergola, Gazebo is a large circular or octagonal structure designed to serve as a temporary or permanent living space in your garden or backyard. While most of the permanent gazebos are made from wood, they can be made from other materials as well.

To summarize, a gazebo and a pergola differ from each other in three aspects. One, their shape. While the former is mostly octagonal, the latter is mainly square or rectangular. Two, while gazebos have roofs, pergolas have only cross beams and are devoid of roofs. Three, while gazebo is mostly a separate structure, pergola is used to link different structures. But their difference is vanishing quickly. Nowadays you can easily buy an outdoor gazebos tensile structure.

Searching for prefabricated structures? Visit BKF — November 23, 2017

Searching for prefabricated structures? Visit BKF

When was the last time you saw a big bridge being constructed wholly on-site? Maybe long ago. The tedious, often annoying, method of construction has now almost been completely replaced by prefabricated structures. The need to do it quick, sleek and without taking much space has forced people to look for alternative mode of constructions. Prefabrication is one of them. But the use of prefabricated structures in not limited to big bridges only. Nowadays they are being used in small constructions.

Prefabrication is a process in which a big structure is disunited into smaller ones and each unit is manufactured at different locations. Once designed they are transported, either wholly assembled or partially assembled, to its destination. There are many reasons for opting prefabrications. One, it seeks to concentrate similar works together. This avoids the need to shift workers to every location. Second, since different units are manufactured at different places, it helps in overcoming the constraints posed due to space and time. At the end of the day it’s all about saving money and making entire construction process cost-effective.

Searching for a new roof? Go for polycarbonate roofing structures — November 6, 2017

Searching for a new roof? Go for polycarbonate roofing structures

When it comes to covering your head with a roof, many options come to the mind. They could be concrete roofs, metal roofs, corrugated roofs, plastic roofs or they could be polycarbonate roofs. Surprised at the inclusion of the last word? You need not. Made from polymers these polycarbonate roofing structures are not just easy and quick to install but also provide amazing aesthetics.

frunt

Polycarbonates start their journey from distillation of hydrocarbons which breaks them into fractions. These fractions are made to undergo various chemical processes like polymerization to manufacture polycarbonates. These are amorphous thermoplastics possessing varied degree of translucency. This property is of great value while designing colorful roof sheds. The introduction of polymer fibers makes polycarbonates tough and durable. Polycarbonate roofing structures are mostly used in industries and commercial spaces. The sheer span of such structures makes it a tad costlier to construct concrete or metal covers.

When it comes to stability and insulation from extreme weather, polycarbonates are second to none. Metal or corrugated roofs can make the entire indoor area too hot or too cold depending on the weather. Plastic roofs on the other hand are rarely used in very hot climates. Though they too are durable, it depends heavily on grade of plastic used which in turn leads to higher cost. Poly roofs on other hand are great worth for your money. Apart from these two characteristics, they also exhibit unrivaled durability, strength, cost effectiveness, wide variety, transparency and aesthetics. They are also easy and cheaper to maintain than others. Their cleaning can be done just by flushing a pool of water over them or by installing an automatic cleaner like the ones used in solar panels.

Enticed? Want to buy one for your own roof? You need not go very far. Companies like BKF are known for their fine quality tensile structure. Visit one of those and get the best value of your hard earned money.

5 facts about aluminum fabrication that will blow your mind! — October 30, 2017

5 facts about aluminum fabrication that will blow your mind!

Aluminum fabrication? Yeah you heard that right. As uncommon it may sound, believe me, it’s not. Most of the commonly used things are either made of aluminum fabrication or are alloys of it. They are everywhere; right from your kitchen knife to the body of the aircraft, from car rimes to high performance vehicles, there’s no escaping them. It’s these degree of demand that attracts many people towards its manufacture and sale but not everyone enjoys the same reputation as BKF does, a company based in Gurgaon that is known all over India for its high quality aluminum fabrications. In this blog you will know about 5 facts that will blow your mind away.

aluminum-fabrication1

  1. Aluminum is the third widely available metal in earth crust

That very well explains why they are so popular. Being in abundance, people since ancient times have devised ways and means to frame and reframe them according to their need. Of course, the other qualities that it possesses come in handy as well.

 

  1. Good conductor of heat and electricity (but can be easily altered)

Being a metal, this one won’t come as a surprise. But it’s the ability to get their conductivity controlled or altered is what makes aluminum and aluminum fabrications so widespread. Through a process called Insulation, the thermal conductivity can be checked to a large extent. Also called as thermal break, it is mostly adopted in applications where low heat transfer is wanted such as in windows.

 

  • Easy to cut and shape

The metal sheets are malleable and can be easily handled. This makes aluminum fabrication hassle free. The possibility to mold them in different shapes also enhances its range of usability by increasing their prospects in manufacture of knives, forks, window shields, car rimes, body of aircrafts etc.

 

  1. Blends exceedingly well with others

The quintessential family guy! Aluminum has this wonderful characteristic of getting along really well with most metals. This finds use in formation of alloys. The alloys on their part find even wider use than normal aluminum fabrications.

 

  1. Untouched by magnetic fields

As all of you know, presence of magnetic fields on earth is one of the reasons for it being able to sustain life. But this has its own set of effects, not always conducive, on metals and their applications. Fortunately, aluminum being immune to magnetic fields finds even wider use than iron whose applicability is reduced to some extent due to its ability to get affected by magnetic fields.
