RAPID BRICK LAYING DEVICE
Product: Device for speedy laying of bricks with improved quality.
Application: Construction of masonry walls.
Feature: The method is mainly based on the use of new gadgets viz. end frames and a string holder. End frames are made in two sizes. The taller one is used for brickwork up to lintel level while the shorter one is fixed onto the wall when masonry is built above lintel level. Both end frames are made of timber & steel in a finished thickness of 25 mm and height of 2 m & 1.25 m. Additionally, a string holder is made of timber in ‘L’ form. This method takes less time than the traditional brick laying methods. There is no need to plumb every course. A mason can lay up to 273 bricks/hr by this method against 192 bricks/hr with the traditional method.
