Prefabricated structures models of the future The prefabricated buildings used securely in American and Europe for many years, started recently to become widespread. The main reason behind delay in sspread of this type of building is that it is perceived by many people as temporary solutions. However with the technological improvments and investments done in this sector, this situation is changing.
Today prefabricated structures offer high safety and are replacing classic buildings with their long-life features. They enjoy many advantages if compared with reinforced concrete structures. Most important advantage is the advanced screw system used in production of prefabricated buildings, which takes care about all details.
Let’s take a quick glance on other advantages of Karmod prefabricated buildings. As standard production capacity, Karmod can produce 4 thousand houses per year. The parts forming prefabricated structure are produced on high-tech production line quickly and without any mistakes.
All units of Karmod prefabricated buildings are produced as demountable according to international transportation standards and can be easily transported by means of land, sea, air and train transportation.
The prefabricated building can be assembled quickly on site with all parts such as walls, doors, windows, electrici installations, plumbing installations and all other details included.
The other very important advantage of prefabricated houses that can also be mentioned is the price. The highly secure, top quality, long-life prefabricated structures have economic prices if compared with other models.
In addition to above mentioned advantages of prefabricated buildings it is useful to discuss also other advantages related to production, design, transportation and quick delivery of ready products.
At first, Karmod the leading brand in prefabricated sector, has specialized and experienced sales staff who know how to meet customers' expectations. It is of great importance to understand customers' expectations in terms of different applications that they want to use for wall and roof cladding solutions.
The world pioneer preafbricated brand Karmod also have strong technical office team of architects and engineers. The project is planned and insulation materials are decided taking into consideration different climate conditions according to the country where the building will be used. Project details are being prepared acording to the purpose of use, whether it was worksite building, social facility or social housing.
Once project is approved by technical office after receiving customer's confirmation, it is then pre-produced at Karmod production facilities with modern technology computer system. The product is prepared for shipping with all parts ready such as walls joints, roof joints, windows and doors.
Karmod products are prepared and packed according to international standards for easy transportation. For overseas destinations shipping containers are used to carry the products, and for regions such as Middle East, Russia and European countries land transportation is possible.
The installation is then carried out in the destination country by Karmod expert assembling teams. According to customer's choice Karmod superivosrs can provide support and training to workforce provided by the customer. In addition to the advantage of having demounbtable jointed structure, prefabricated buildings are erected at very short time.
Assembling stage is being done on-site as the following: After preparing the concrete slab which will serve as foundation to the house, the U profiles are placed and fastened to the concrete slab. Then externation and internal wall panels are placed according to the project manual. All wall panels including door and window panels are placed and jointed together by using H carrier coloumns.
After external and internal wall panels are placed, above them comes the omerga profiles where demountable roof trusses will sit. While this process is in progress there is another process going on inside the house, which is installation of electricity and plumbing networks inside the house.
The demountable roof trusses then are screwed to the H profiles after omegalar are assembled. All roof trusses are placed in order depending on the size of the building. While completing the roof trusses assembling, the assembly of roof purlins starts.
After these steps comes assembling of roof covers. Roof covers can be shingle or metal tiles according to customer's preferences and region's climate. According to the chosen roof application its units are layed in sequence and screwed and after that the roof covers together with joint areas covers' assembling is completed. Shingle and metal tiles colours can also be chosen according to customer's preferences as read burgundy, green, grey, yellow...etc. After placing the roof covers and as a last step the side covers with special vents and roof side covers are assembled.
The internal ceiling cover is applied by using fireproof gupsum boards. All electrical installations parts such as lighting fixtures, sockets, switches, cables and cable channels are assembled. All cables are gathered and connected to the fuse box and are delivered to the external current provider junction box. All sockets, switches and lighting fixtures are assembled as ready to use.
For water network works, carried out with the project, TSE certified PP pipes are used. Pipes are assembled by cutting and heating them according to applied area. After electric and water networks assembling is completed, test is being carried out. At the same time windows and doors installation is continiuing. Windows frames are screwed to the steel frames in the windows wall panels. Internal doors are American panel doors, and they are also assembled with their hinges by screweing them to the steel frame which comes mounted in the wall panel. Finally the entrance external steel door is placed and assembly is completed.
If kitchen cabinet is included in the contract, then by this stage their assembling is already completed. Next step is assembling the rain gutters and down spouts pips by connecting them to special clamps that are screwed to the wall panels. We can say that last stage of assembling prefabricated hosue is fixing it to the concrete slab. The external side of H profile comes with special welded bracket at the bottom, which is fixed to the concrete slab by using 18 cm steel screws.
After assembling comes the house painting. According to customer’s choice external cladding material is used from cement boards with special decorative patterns. If not then painting works are completed for exterior and interior of the house using colours recommended by technical office.
