a. Description:

Page 15 of 21

Razor wire barbed tape concertina coil is a wire spiral of 50 turn having core wire of high carbon
spring steel of high tensile strength and a carbon steel strip of 21mm width , 0.5mm thick having
razor sharp barbs punched along the length on both sides of strip at regular intervals. The
punched tape and core wire are hot dip galvanized to prevent corrosion in outdoor exposure.
The punched tape is cold clenched to more then 230 deg over the core wire then formed into
coils. At various parts on the circumference of the coil the spirals of the coil are connected to
each other with STAINLESS STEEL SS304 clips to form the concertina coil so that it can be
opened up like an accordion. Two handles are provided on both sides to ensure ease of
handling. The length of the obstacle when opened up is 6 meters.
The Razor wire barbed tape concertina coil consists of various components like:
1) Punched Tape
2) Spring steel core wire
3) Clip

8.0 PAINTING OF COMPOUND WALL:


The job includes external painting of Compound wall (from inside as well as outside) in white
WATERPROOF cement paint.
The specifications and method of application is as follows:
8.1. Material:
8.1.1. Cement Paint:
Cement Paint shall comply with IS: 5410-1992 and shall be of approved brand like Snowcem
India Ltd.only. The shade shall be approved by the Engineer before its application.
8.2.Application:
8.2.1. General:
Wherever scaffolding is required / necessary, it shall be erected on double support tied together
by horizontal pieces, over which the scaffolding planks shall be fixed. No part of it shall rest on
or touch the surface which is being washed /painted. Where ladders are used , pieces of old
gunny bags shall be tied on their tops to avaoid damage or scratches to walls. The surface on
which wash is to be applied shall be thoroughly brushed free from mortar droppings and foreign
matter.
8.2.2. Cement Primer Coat:
The surface shall be thoroughly cleaned of dust, mortar, droppings etc. and shall be allowed to
dry for at least 48 hours. It shall then be rubbed thoroughly by sand paper to give a smooth and
even surface. Any unevenness shall be made good by applying putty, made of POP (Plaster of
Paris) mixed with water on the entire surface including filling up the undulation and then sand
papering the same after it is dry. The cement primer shall preferably be applied by brushing and
not by spraying. Horizontal strokes shall be given first and vertical strokes shall be applied
immediately, afterwards. This entire operation will constitute one coat. The surface shall be
finished as smooth as possible, leaving no brush marks.
8.2.3. Water proof Cement Paint:
The prepared surface shall be thoroughly wetted with cleaned water before waterproof cement
is applied. The paint shall be prepared strictly as per manufactures specifications, in the
absence of which it shall be mixed in two stages. The first stage shall comprise of 2 parts of
water- proof cement paint and one part of water stirred thoroughly and allowed to stand for 5

Page 18 of 21

minutes. Care shall be taken to add the paint gradually to the water and not vice-versa. The
second stage shall comprise of adding further one part of water to the mix and stirring
thoroughly to obtain a liquid of workable and uniform consistency. The paint shall be mixed in
such quantities as can be used up within an hour of its mixing.
The paint shall be applied with brushes or spraying machine. The solution can be kept well
stirred during the period of application. It shall be applied as far as possible on the surface,
which is on the shady side of the building so that direct heat of the sun on the surface is
avoided. Painted surface shall be sprinkled with water 2 or 3 times a day. This shall be done
between coats and for at least 2 days following the final coat. The curing shall be started as
soon as paint has hardened so as not to damage by sprinkling of water say about 12 hours after
the application. A uniform shade should be obtained after application of paint. Cement paint
shall not be applied on surfaces already treated with white wash, color wash, distemper, varnish
paint etc. and on gypsum, wood and metal surfaces.
8.3 COLOR CODING:
1. Compound wall: Compound wall shall be painted white with grey color patta on top / columns.

TESTING OF BUILDING MATERIALS

The contractor shall carry out the following tests, unless otherwise mentioned and as directed by
the engineer in charge at his own expense. The Engineer in charge reserves the right to ask
the contractor to carry out any further tests on the materials which is being used in the project.
For particle size test, it is recommended that the set of sieves and weighing machines be
arranged by the contractor at site. Necessary manpower for carrying the tests shall be arranged
by the contractor.
For crushing strength of concrete, it is recommended that the contractor arrange the
compression testing machine at the site along with the calibration certificate for gauge.
In case, if any of the machine comes to repairs and tests could not be carried out at the site,
contractor shall arrange to transport the material to an approved laboratory to carry out the
tests. All transports and labour costs also are to borne by contractor.
