In today’s world, people construct their houses in different shapes as they want. But it is not very easy to do as we think. If we think about the general contract work, we can know about the tools which are used to construct our houses. This post tells about the details of some civil engineering construction tools, building and masonry tools and their uses in various ways.

So if we want to do the job we get many construction tools and equipment. These tools help people a lot to construct houses, hotels, buildings, huge buildings, etc. When people want to make new houses the tools or equipment may require less quantity.

Float

Float is used to make the plastered concrete surface smoother.

Float

Gloves

It is one type of safety maintaining tool. Gloves are needed to prevent the hands from direct contact with cement, paints, etc. It also helps people so that no injury will happen.

Gloves

Concrete Mixer

A concrete mixer is a type of machine which is used to mix the ingredients water,  aggregate and cement. It mixes the concrete perfectly.

Concrete Mixer Construction ToolsThere are varieties of types of concrete mixers.

Batch Concrete Mixers

This construction tool is mainly used for mixing the ingredients i.e. actually for concrete mixing. The mixer collects the concrete mixing time by time. That’s why it is called a batch mixer. When the materials are poured into drum it mixes all the things. This is a very known process that is widely used. This process is repeated until the needed quantity of concrete mix is obtained.

In general Batch mixers are of two types:

1)Drum Type Mixers

This type of mixer’s concrete ingredients and then the mixing amount is mixed in a drum.

2)Pan Type Concrete Mixers

This type of concrete mixer consists of a circular pan. In that place people used to mix the concrete. The mixing is done by blades. This pan type mixers are efficient enough to use.

Continuous Concrete Mixers

Here the name Continuous Concrete Mixers itself says the job it does. These concrete mixers mix the materials continuously until the work is complete. The loading of materials is finished incessantly by screw feeders.

Measuring Box

The contractors use the measuring box to measure the quantity of sand. The normal dimensions of a measuring box are 300mm X 300mm X 400mm (length x width x depth).Various types of cement have various properties and applications. Some of the types of cement are Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), rapid hardening cement, etc.

Measuring BoxWater helps to suck the mix of concrete and make it strong and stick as fast as possible. It enhances the durable power of the concrete. The role of it is a very important role within the whole project. When water is mixed with materials then the cement reacts with water and after that hydration reaction starts. And the reaction helps ingredients to form a hard matrix.

Concrete is mixed in the right manner or right proportions concerning the cement quantity. When we come to discuss we get to know there are two types of concrete mixes, i.e. nominal mix and design mix. The nominal compound is applied for ordinary construction works. Most of the cases, the nominal combine is used in 1:2:4 proportion.

Hoe

Hoe is also used as head pan  but in this case there is a metal plate that provides an acute angle.

Plumb Rule

It has a straight wooden board with equal edges. On its center a groove is provided within which plummet is placed. Once the rule is placed vertically with the wall the plummet ought to be within the groove line otherwise the wall won’t be vertical.Plumb Rule

Polisher

Polisher helps to smooth the surface of tiles, wood works, etc. The smoothening makes them shine and therefore the method is termed sharpening.

Polisher Construction ToolsPutty Knife

Putty knife is employed level the putty ending and conjointly accustomed cut back the thickness of finish once it’s additional thick.

Pick Axe

It is employed to excavate the soil. It’s additionally appropriate for the soil that is kind of tough to dig with spade or hoe.

Pick Axe

Earth ram

When the ground is excavated , the lower surface becomes uneven. To level, the surface earth ram is employed. It contains a massive square formed block at its finish with that the bottom is leveled.

Rubber Boots

During construction works, legs could harm because of contact with chemical materials like cement or physical accidents. So, for safety rubber shoes are needed.

Rubber Boots

Spade

It is used to dig the soil. It contains a metal plate also.

Wheel Barrow

This construction tool has two wheels and two handles at their front and back respectively. Cement, the mix of concrete is transported by this.

Wheel Barrow

Vibrator

This construction tool is used to fulfill the gaps in the concrete mixture. It fills the gaps created by the air in the mixture while the contractors pour the concrete mix. There are three types of vibrators:

1) Immersion or needle concrete vibrators

2) External or Shutter Concrete Vibrator

3) Surface concrete vibrator

VibratorPiling Winches

Piling winches are generally used to lift the hammer and piles. This construction tool functions with pile frames and various powering sources like hydraulic power,  diesel or petrol engines.

There are different piling winches with different capacity such as double or triple drums winches.

Hammer Guides

When the contractors think to remove the hanging leaders, these are commonly guided by steel formwork.

Hammer Guides

Piling Hammer

There are many factors that influence to choose this type of hammer. As an example the size of the pile and weight and many other things.

Piling Hammer Construction tools

These all are modern construction tools and equipment. Contractors use approx many tools for building construction. These construction tools are used for different cases. These tools work such as concrete, leveling, plastering, floor works, etc. Every construction tool is very important to get good results as their functions are varied in the whole project.  One side the contractors use these types of tools or arsenals but they also need to use some tools which help them to maintain safety. These tools prevent contractors from unexpected accidents. With the help of all these building construction equipments and tools all construction works like the wood, brick, floor, slabs works are done.
