Regarding 'Guess which Building Material/ Product is this!'

[This post is in continuation of yesterday's post-- "Guess which Building Material/ Product is this!"]

Congratulations Punam B. for correctly making out what this building product was this. As a policy of this blog, a gift/ coffee voucher shall be on your way should you desire to share your whereabouts and contact details with Bricksnmortar Edesk.

The building product shown in the teaser picture in yesterday's post was indeed an architectural product called 'Cement Jaali' (Mortar Architectural Mesh) that usually finds abundant usage in one or more of the following fields:
  • gardens, lawns, soil slope protection, etc. (in light & thin forms)
  • drainage covers (in heavier & thicker forms
  • architectural masonry units, especially where glass is not to be used and natural ventilation/ air circulation is desired (like in verticals of stair wells, garages, verandahs, court yards, etc.)
Such products are made in large scale in mid sized bulk factories, small scale industries, and including the cottage industry (also known as road-side nomadic industry). Since these products are made and used for non-structural applications only, they usually find usage as architectural and aesthetic elements.

Other similar products that are made in similar fashion and for similar usage are:
  • paving blocks
  • railings, balusters
  • garden pots (flower pots)
  • covers for smaller sized trenches, pits, kitchen drain traps, etc., etc.
Hereunder is a brief slideshow of the pictures the said associate of ours clicked at this particular road-side cottage industry located somewhere in Delhi NCR. And yes, thanks for sending your comments, mail replies and feedburner feedback on this post. Your active involvement motivates BnM team members :-)
