MANFAAT GYPSUM YANG BELUM DIKETAHUI

Meski sering mendengar tentang “gypsum”, namun apakah Anda telah memahami lebih jauh apa itu gypsum dan manfaatnya bagi kehidupan?Gypsum merupakan salah satu jenis mineral dengan kadar kalsium yang tinggi. Mineral ini memiliki berbagai manfaat dalam sektor kehidupan seperti sebagai bahan obat-obatan, produk kecantikan, hingga material bangunan.Pada industri konstruksi dan bahan bangunan sendiri, gypsum dimanfaatkan sebagai pelapis interior untuk dinding dan plafon. Papan gypsum telah diperkenalkan kepada masyarakat luas sejak ratusan tahun lalu, dan mulai saat itu papan gypsum dipercaya sebagai alternatif lain bagi interior bangunan.Di Indonesia, gypsum sangat mudah ditemui di daerah Kalimantan dan Jawa Barat, namun hingga saat ini pemanfaatan gypsum di negara tersebut belum maksimal. Dari total 260 juta penduduk Indonesia, penggunaan gypsum saat ini baru mencapai 100 juta meter persegi dan 95% diantaranya hanya menggunakan untuk plafon dibandingkan untuk sistem lapisan dinding.*Padahal menggunakan papan gypsum untuk plafon dan dinding atau bagian bangunan lainnya memiliki banyak keuntungan seperti:·       Menghasilkan plafon yang rata dan mulus serta tidak tampak sambungan.·       Dapat dibuat beragam bentuk seperti bertingkat (drop up celling), kubah (dome), dan lain-lain.·       Gypsum mempunyai berbagai aksesoris dan hiasan, seperti lis, hiasan tengah, hiasan sudut, dan lain sebagainya. Hal ini membuat model gypsum dapat bervariasi.·       Perawatan dan perbaikannya gampang. Jika ada yang rusak tidak perlu mengganti seluruh lembaran, namun cukup dengan memperbaiki bagian yang rusak saja dengan sistem dempul memakai compound (plaster).·       Proses pemasangannya cepat dan rapi.·       Tidak gampang terbakar dan dimakan oleh rayap.·       Mudah ditemukan di pasaran. Hal tersebut sangat disayangkan mengingat keuntungan pemakaian papan gypsum sangatlah banyak, seperti perawatan yang mudah dan harga yang ekonomis. Oleh sebab itu, Gyproc Indonesia berkomitmen untuk terus mengedukasi masyarakat mengenai pemanfaatan gypsum bagi sistem lapisan dinding pada berbagai sektor bangunan di Indonesia.

BANGUN RUMAH DENGAN PAPAN GYPSUM? SIAPA TAKUT!

Dinding merupakan salah satu bagian penting pada sebuah rumah. Kokoh atau tidaknya suatu bangunan sangat bergantung pada kualitas material pada dinding.Mayoritas keluarga Indonesia memilih untuk menggunakan batu bata pada dinding rumah dengan anggapan bahwa batu bata merupakan material yang paling tepat. Tapi nyatanya, pola pikir ini tidak 100% benar.

Floating Structures: a better, more environmentally responsible practice for developer in building on water vs land reclamation

The heated debate around Benoa Bay (Teluk Benoa) in Bali has been ongoing for many months, in which a lot of efforts and cost have been incurred on both sides of the fence. Both sides have compelling reasons for their stance. The developers see Benoa Bay as very strategic to extend Bali Island’s tourism industry growth, due to its very close proximity to the airport, Nusa Dua, area, the sea, and Denpasar itself. Those opposed to it cite environmental issues – that the area’s mangrove forest will be destroyed, that aquatic life and the water current pattern will forever be altered. They are right – the moment a body of water is reclaimed, i.ie, buried with soil and sand, the aquatic biota of the area ends.So is there a viable compromise to this situation? Making the development floating over water is possibly one of them. b-foam floating structure solution is EPS foam based platform, which offer very long and maintenance-free service life (warranty is 30 years for buoyancy capacity), exceptional safety factor (virtually unsinkable because there is no hollow air cavity inside the pontoon module), and high load capacity. b-foam floating structures has been successfully employed to build many floating facilities at the popular Lembang Floating Market, a 2 story floating restaurant on Kahayan River, Palangkaraya (Central Borneo), and transport floating platform to carry solid concrete tetrapods (1.2 tons each).

4 Mistakes in House Renovation that Cause It to Be Overbudget

This New Year many people may have a plan to renovate their house to make it more beautiful and livable. Budget is an important issue when it comes to house renovation. You would not want the renovation to become overbudget before it is finished or during the process. To avoid such a problem, you had better avoid making these mistakes. 1. Lack of Planning: Beginning the renovation without carefully planning it before can lead to increased cost unexpectedly. For example, if you have no plan in advance and you keep changing the plan as the renovation goes, the cost will increase endlessly. Or, if you buy materials before planning, you may have bought more than necessary or those that are not to be used for the renovation. 2. Lack of Consultation with Experts: Some types of renovation may affect the structure of the house such as kitchen enlargement or mezzanine extension. If the existing structure is not strong enough to bear additional weight, the house may subside or crack which will cost you even more for the maintenance. So, it is important to consult with experts before the renovation begins to make sure that everything can go as planned. 3. Being Uncareful about Contractor: Unqualified contractors can delay the renovation or make it understandard, causing you to spend more money on maintenance later. Plus, paying the contractor fully before the renovation is begun or inappropriate tranches of payment may allow them to abandon their work and thus cause you to lose money and time to find a new one. 4. Being Unnecessarily Economical: Some people may want to save cost by selecting material with low prices without considering their quality, but these materials can be broken easily which will cost even more for maintenance in the long term. Other people may try to renovate the house by themselves to save cost, but since renovation actually requires skilled people, the renovation may not be successful, unsafe, or understandard. They may have to spend more later on hiring experts to mend the wrongly renovated parts.

4 Main Factors to Consider When Selecting Flooring Materials

Floors are an important part of the house since they usually exposed to intensive and different kinds of usage, so we have to be meticulous when choosing flooring materials. Unsuitable materials can result in floor deterioration sooner than usual or they can affect the livelihood in the house. To avoid such problems, you should carefully consider these factors when selecting flooring materials.1. Area: Different areas in the house require different types of flooring materials.- For interior floors that are exposed to intensive usage or water such as those in bedrooms, living rooms or bathrooms, any type of materials would do. It can be a laminated floor, or covered with parquet, SHERA Floor Plank, tiles, marble or even carpet.- For areas that often become wet and easily stained such as kitchens or bathrooms, the material should be resistant to water and moisture, and easy to clean such as tiles and granito. They should also be the kind that is not slippery when wet to minimize risks of accident.- For exterior floors, which are often exposed to sunlight and rain such as those in the garden, balcony, patio, or rooftop, the material should be strong and durable against weather conditions without shrinking or stretching such as SHERA Floor Plank.- If the floors are to be in areas exposed to intensive usage, or areas that have to look beautiful, you should use "SHERA Color Through" which is produced with nano technology that paints the material both inside and outside, so the color remains throughout the whole material. SHERA Color Through is also extremely durable against weather conditions and so can remain beautiful even after intensive usage.2. Appearance: The flooring material should look beautiful and blend in with other parts of the house. For example, a modern style house matches tiles and granito which look modern, or marble if you want the house to look luxurious. If you want your house to look natural and warm, you may use wood or wood substitute such as SHERA Floor Plank.3. Family Members: The flooring material should go along with the lifestyles of the family members. For instance, if you do not have much time to maintain and clean your house, the material should be low-maintenance and easy to clean such as tiles or SHERA Floor Plank.Plus, health-related conditions should also be considered. If you have allergies, you should not lay the floor with carpet because it can hold a lot of dust and bacteria which can worsen your symptom.4. Cost: Different types of materials have different prices. You should select flooring materials based on your budget, but focusing on the cheap price alone without considering the quality can result in poor-quality material. Some materials that have cheap prices are under standard and not durable enough, causing you to waste time and money fixing them often, which is not worth it in the long term.

Urgent Call to Builders: Get Rid of All the Bricks

Do you remember the story of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty? Knowing that the your Princess Aurora had been cursed to get stung by the needle on a spinning wheel, her royal parents ordered all the spinning wheel in the country to be burned, but they forgot one at the attic in the castle’s tower. And so, with the spell of the evil queen, Princess Aurora was led upstairs to use the spinning wheel, and there she got stung by the needle, and fell into the coma planned by the evil queen.In our homes, we always have these cursed spinning wheel around, deadly time bombs that will readily harm the residents of the home during severe earthquake. They are the bricks. Mostly loose, unsupported and unreinforced, and merely rely on the plaster to keep them together. It amazing to think that in 2015, we human still resort to non-reinforced brick masonry, even in the most earthquake-prone regions, and even in the upscale development, where both the income level and the sophistication of the residence should be looking for a more advanced, safer alternative.What about lightweight bricks? Lightweight masonry, so long as they are not reinforced, would be just as dangerous. Although lighter than concrete or conventional red bricks, these large sized lightweight bricks falling down from a story worth of height, can easily maim and kill building occupants.By employing b-panel (as well as similar Structural Insulated Panels/SIPs), the concern of falling brick debris during earthquake is completely solved, as there is no loose bricks in the structure of the building. All wall surface is reinforced with densely spaced steel wire matrix, which makes the wall in effect a structural shear wall (and a thermally and acoustically insulated one at that). In a b-panel building, the walls are one extremely rigid, monolithic structural unit. Even in the most severe earthquake, the failure characteristics of b-panel wall is not catastrophic. The plaster will cracks and loosen, but not in a big, heavy chunks that can be lethal if hitting humans as in the case of bricks.But old habits die hard. Even in recent b-panel projects, it was found that some contractor still use bricks to cover areas that was not covered by b-panel (mostly due to estimation error), such as triangular area under the roof ridge. (“Ampig” in Indonesian). This is the lone yarn machine in the Sleeping Beauty story. The b-panel wall will stay safely intact during earthquake, but the home occupant might still get hurt by the sudden falling bricks from beyond the ceiling. There is no Prince Charming to give the wake up kiss to the fallen victims of bricks. Another example is loose bricks used for mosque architectural details – it is ironic if a place of worship become a dangerous place during natural disaster instead of a place of shelter it was intended to be.The practice of using unsupported masonry, especially for public service facilities, such as schools, hospitals/clinics, place of worships, government buildings, and communication shelters, must be eradicated. If this is still done because of cultural and behavior inertia, more effort to educate the market needs to be done. However, it is deeply unethical, if the architect, owner, or contractor still build this way even if the potential danger of unsupported masonry is already known.

b-foam Ultralight Facade – Reducing Structural Loads of Building and Improving Earthquake Safety

Todays avant-garde exterior building designs present challenges to architects and developers alike. Aside from increased costs, the additional weight of these exterior architectural design elements increases the structural reinforcement needs for the building. Moreover, in the earthquake-prone areas, architectural façade elements can be deadly falling debris if they get detached during the quake.So why these elements has to be made with heavy, solid concrete? They are not load bearing, and thus there is no real reasons for making them as such (typical good quality precast element is made of at least 300 MPa concrete). Through their constant innovation pursuits, PT BE Putra develops b-foam Ultra-Light (UL) architectural façades.
