Working in warehouses for most of my adult life, I was very familiar with overhead bridge cranes. These cranes are commonly used in warehouses, helping to transport large or heavy items from one side of the warehouse to the other. However, when I began working as a warehouse efficiency coordinator, I was surprised by how many smaller warehouses did not have these cranes. I created this website because I never realized that people who own warehouses don't own overhead bridge cranes or that they are not familiar with them. If you own a warehouse, I hope my website helps to teach you more about this piece of machinery and how it can make your business more efficient.
If you are planning to construct a new home, you should consider hiring a concrete contractor to build it for you. There are many advantages to choosing this building material over others, and you will have a strong home that even the big bad wolf would have a hard time blowing down.
If you have always dreamed of peace and quiet in your home, concrete walls are very effective at keeping the noise down. Sounds cannot penetrate through concrete walls as well as they can when compared to wood. It will not block out 100% of the sound, especially if you have a teenager playing rock music at the highest volume, but it will block out most of it.
A concrete home can help you save money on your energy bills. Because the walls are made of long, continuous concrete panels, or interlocking foam blocks, air cannot leak in or out of the home. Concrete also does not settle over time as homes made with lumber do, so your home will remain airtight.
If the concrete contractor installs steel rods into hollow voids in the concrete blocks, the home can withstand earthquakes. Once the steel rods are in place, the contractor will put in a mixture of cement, small gravel, and sand, into the voids. Once it is cured and hardened, it is almost impossible to tear down.
If you choose a concrete house, you will feel no cold or hot areas in your home, as well as no drafts. This allows you and your family to stay comfortable no matter what room you are in. Because of the thermal mass of concrete, it absorbs, stores, and releases heat and cold so temperatures outside does not affect the temperature inside the home.
You will never have to worry about ants, rodents, or any other pests getting into your home, which provides you with a much cleaner environment. Mold cannot grow on concrete because it contains no organic materials. Concrete is also beneficial for people that suffer from allergies because it keeps allergens outside.
Concrete is a green material, as it requires less energy for cooling and heating, and it conserves resources as less wood is used in building the home. In most cases, the only lumber that is used is in the interior framing. You also do not have to worry about your home catching on fire, as concrete is fire resistant.
