More often than not, there is a lynch pin to keep them all together, both in life and in every other aspect. For a married couple it could be their love child, and for two pieces of wood, it is the nail. When one thinks of a construction or refurbishment project, there are multiple instances, where such coming together or bringing together can be seen: which is indeed a necessity. Fixing that window pane into the frame, fixing the door on its hinges, fixing the that mosaic tile o to the floor, attaching the water beaker into the pipe, etc: all of these need the right equipment, tool or the material in order to realize that ‘attachment’.
It is important that we stress on the word ‘right’ here. The more important the project gets, the graver the concerns of public safety get, resorting to substitutes and cheap tools may not be an option. As a civil engineer, as an architect, as a quantity surveyor, or even as a regular mason-hand, you need to be cautious and try not to compromise. You must acquire a certain amount of confidence and patience, so that you can plan out your work step by step and be mindful of the nature, the type, and the overall cost of the material you need. This is healthy, relatively risk free way to go ahead with your work.

Glass ones are all the rage these days, not just for office spaces, but also for modern homes. It is up to you, with the assistance of the overseer, to decide which one of the above fits the bill. You need to be more creative here, rather than be pedantic and practical.

As a specialist or professional, or as a veteran of a hundred construction projects, even you must find yourself to be challenged when faced with such a task, since these fasteners are categorized and catalogued (e.g.:- according to the maximum weight they can bear). It will test your experience and skills. Thankfully, there are people to assist you. The service providers are most of the time more than capable of enlightening you.
