So we in India are 2 years and 2 covid restrictions old... The this time life just came to a HALT!!!
The 2nd wave, we were moving in a struggle to finish projects and meet deadlines, in most cases without LABOR &/or MANPOWER .
So due to travel restrictions the replacement LABOR FORCE &/or MANPOWER from the source's(villages etc) did not move in to fill the gap left by the out going LABOR FORCE (from the cities).
Any way , my focus and this blog deals with electrical earth pits / Ground access wells . NOT the labor &/or MANPOWER supply conditions.
STILL :- it is clear ALL PROJECTS INCLUDING LIGHTNING PROTECTION AND EARTHING projects are stalled and no movement can be expected in labor &/OR MAN POWER imbalances.
The LABOR / MAN POWER needed to install the polymer earth inspection housing is so MUCH LESS!! Makes it easy to complete projects in a general atmosphere of labor shortage.
AND THIS IS WHERE THE ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF POLYMER EARTH INSPECTION HOUSINGS come shining and a WINNER v/s Concrete pre-cast OR BRICK WALL similar's.
A properly made polymer earth inspection housing will comply to
(1) load tests,
(2) Dimensional stability,
(3) UV Tolerance (4) Weather stability (5) Protection of earthing assets and connections (6) Inspectability of earthing assets and connections
(7) Visual identification
What more can be asked for AND it is every thing a concrete or Cast Iron Lid & earth inspection housing / Ground inspection housing can deliver with much MORE ease of installation and use. Much LESS of environmental impact.
The average concrete prefabricated earth pit of 300 x 300 x 190 mm is 30 Kg any bigger and the weight goes up to even 100 kg. The handling and transpiration cost ARE EXORBITANT.
Add to that the man power to handle.
THIS LABOR/MANPOWER SUPPLY CONDITION is a long term trend , It is clear that will always be more costly AND less available (DOUBLE WHAMMY) as we go forward.
So the SHINE in favor of POLYMER EARTH INSPECTION/GROUND INSPECTION HOUSING is they are more "LESS LABOR FRIENDLY" due to ease of installation and handling.
TILL, FUTURE FACTS BRING OUT ANY OTHER THOUGHT PROCESS....long live polymer earth inspection housings.... Quick easy and useful
