moving work

Hand chain hoist by a home builder company that uses a knock-down house to have a size of 2-3 ton. It is a hoist made in Japan (made in Japan) because it can lift a full ton of weight.

From experience Hand chain hoists should not be used. made from China because it is easily damaged, not durable and cannot be fully lifted according to the standard weight The author had tried using a Chinese reel. It appears that between Operate the pulley causing the chain to get stuck. When the technician tries to surge causing the chain to fall off and the house to fall down and be damaged

moving work used for lifting cranes

Due to the knock-down of the fiber cement steel frame. Weighs more than 2.5 tons. Can’t use a 5 ton crane to lift. Must use a 30 ton large crane.

Using fabric slings around the corners to bear the weight on the upper beams on both sides by attaching 4 corners. The crane service fee per hire is about 7,000-10,000 baht, depending on the distance near/far.

*** In the event that the crane finger point is not made open the roof and use DB12 cane stalks to be bent into ears and welded into a longitudinal line on 2 sides, not less than 10 cm. tightly around the inside of all 4 sides

Moving work using a trailer towing

At present, trailers are being used to tow the knock-down houses. Building a house in a more mobile form for the moving area is not far, the advantages of the trailer. The floor will be lower than the truck. causing no problem in the distance of electrical wires or entering narrow spaces or the truck is inconvenient to go back and forth

The author used to build a trailer-like motorhome as well, but it’s safer to use a 6-wheeled vehicle because the house + trailer weighs 3-4 tons, but if it’s a pick-up truck, it weighs only 1.1/2. Tons may not be safe Because the weight of the car is less than the house + trailer, must be very careful.

Example of installation of columns and steel plates, base footing

An example of installing a steel anchor, fixing the steel plate and bringing the house to set up

in case of cracks caused by moving cracks of fiber cement board

  • Cracks not more than 2 mm. can use acrylic filler or chemical putty for small cracks.
  • Large cracks 2-10 mm. Use 302 acrylic sealant to fill the groove first and apply an acrylic filler to the acrylic sealant. Allow to dry and sand to smooth.

***302 acrylic sealant, the material is flexible like rubber. Use to fill the groove, can not be polished

In the case of cracks at the seams Fiber cement board walls, use polyurethane sealant in case of cracks at the joints. Fiber cement lumber, use acrylic sealant.

Example of knock-down house installation with concrete base

***In the case of not embedding steel plate Use a drill to drill holes and hammer the DB12 steel firmly. Use the DB12 steel to join the steel plate. and used as reinforcing steel as shown in the picture Before pouring concrete over the pillar foot cover

In case of wanting to hold more firmly, use epoxy plugged steel together with anchoring.

Should pour cement, sand or concrete, cover steel plates, steel pole feet for beauty. and prevent rust

In the case of a large dwelling, NCPO poles should be used to support the weight of the columns and steel beams.

before handing over the work The base of the column should be painted with shell flintkote super (green) for external work height 10 cm. to prevent rust at the base of the steel pole
