Uses for Construction Fittings
Many construction fittings are used in residential and commercial properties. The purchase of a new home is one of the biggest investments you will make, so you’ll want to make sure that your construction fittings are of the utmost quality.
Construction fittings include a wide range of fittings that serve many different purposes. These fittings are often customized according to the needs and specifications of the client. Standard formwork fittings used in civil construction may include clips and wedges, assembly pins, soldier clips, tube clips and channel clips.
Construction fittings may also be used for electrical materials, which are the parts used to complete any type of electrical construction project such as the circuiting in a small home or the entire electrical system of a large industrial plant. Electrical materials usually come in the form of fittings, circuit breakers, lugs, motor controls, conduits, enclosures and lighting.
Types of Construction Fittings
Types of construction fittings will vary depending on what the fitting is being used for. However, many construction fittings are electrical, pipe fittings or even metal fittings.
Electrical wire may be drawn copper, metal or aluminum that carries electricity through an electrical circuit. The wire may be run underground, overhead or through a conduit. Wherever the wire is run through, it is always protected with an electrical jacket. Electrical connectors are lugs, which are used to terminate the electrical circuit. Lugs may be composed of aluminum, copper or bronze.
Glass construction fittings are another type. Over the years, glass fittings have improved greatly thanks to advancements in technology and durability. Most glass fittings are decorative, but are made of various designs to be compatible with whatever they are being installed into. Glass fittings are unique compared to electrical fittings because although they have distinctive functions, they may also be used for display purposes.
Glass construction fittings are also usually very modern in style and function, which allows them to be used in many different ways. Glass fittings are often strengthened with other metallic parts that enhance durability and can often serve as replacement parts that may have traditionally been made from wood or metal only.
One such innovative use of glass fittings involves toilette implements such as special mirrors. To be properly fitted, the glass is usually preheated so that water vapor doesn’t settle along the surface, unlike standard mirrors that have cold panes. The pane in a special mirror, however, is touched in a black shade so that it can hold on to the sun’s rays and keep it dryer longer, making them ideal for conserving heat.
Who Needs Construction Fittings?
The right construction fittings are essential for maintaining the value of a property, whether it’s residential or commercial. This makes choosing the right fittings an extension of choosing the right investment. An improper electrical fitting, for instance, can negatively affect other construction fittings.
