Home makers and designers use varied materials to protect home from outside elements such as wind, rainfall and sun heat. These materials are affixed on the external walls of the homes and are thus known as wall cladding. The materials used for cladding ranges from natural stone, manufactured stone and marble. Cladding not only protects the home, but also makes the house look stylish and elegant. Thus wall cladding is both, functional as well as a design element. There are various materials that can be used for wall cladding; Stone: Natural stone is a great option for every home. They look royal and add a charm to the house. In case you reside in a rural property, using stone wall cladding is a great option. Using stone maybe a good idea but is an expensive option, in such a case rather than using stone wall cladding throughout, you can opt to add elements of stone cladding in various areas of the house such as the garden porch, garage or a side of the home. This not only beautifies the house, but also helps in keeping vital areas safe from natural elements. Stone claddings are very durable and long lasting, thus are a sensible investment. Business properties make extensive use of stone claddings as they look regal and make the property stand out. Marble: Marble is an elegant stone which when added in homes makes the house look beautiful and has a sophistication look to it. Pure calcite marbles are white in color making them look very elegant and when used as cladding, they can completely transform the look of...

Total Quality Management: Organizational DNA

Total quality management is a well known concept of putting in organizational efforts to create high quality products and services to customers. This approach was bent towards installing a permanent quality mindset and supportive environment across the organization to achieve the quality targets. As opposed to modern day concepts of lean manufacturing, six sigma, or ISO 900, Total quality management is a deep reaching system. In the modern day scenario while activities like six sigma, and ISO 9000 are seen as campaigns, or certification programs, the end results of which are merely an advertising point, total quality management is instilling a sense of responsibility, accountability, and empowering the workforce with a top down approach, and aligning with the true goal of constant improvement and visible results. This is possible only if the management, top, and middle, make efforts to educate, and involve the workforce in quality management. I use the word quality management and not control because the workforce is involved in lifting the benchmark quality indices, and pushing the boundaries. The same is possible, only when the workforce willingly takes part in managing quality. This might have to the grass roots, and micro management might be required even for the finest of details, and smallest tasks to achieve the end result. For example, in the manufacture of diamond tools for stone polishing, our machine operators and engineers are involved in more than a hundred different processes. If the tasks are broken down, the quality management should start from the time raw materials are received. questions which have to be answered(by tasks) can range from How to unload the...

Black Galaxy Granite: Know Your Granite

Black galaxy granite, as the name suggests, is a type of black granite. The appearance of metallic granulations or specks make it glitter on polishing. Just like the stars in the galaxy, hence the name. It is an extremely popular type of granite. It is preferred for flooring, counter tops, wall cladding among other uses. It is found in abundance in the city of Ongole, in Andhra Pradesh state of India. Incidentally Ongole is also the world’s largest exporter of black galaxy granite. The city is bustling with activity and a majority of the factories are spread across Ongole, and Chimakurthy nearby. The demand for black galaxy granite within India, and globally has been increasing year on year, and this has spurred the growth of the economy of the city. The number of factories processing the stone is ever increasing. The stone is robust and is commercially used for flooring and tiling. It has also found place in awesome table tops and vanity articles. Black galaxy mainly finds its application in commercial establishments and shops, or public spaces, mainly due to the glitter of the surface. In homes it may not be suitable for flooring, mainly due to the dark colour of the stone. It may give the room a dark appearance. The beauty of the stone stands out under bright lighting and hence you may have to modify the lighting of your room. Disclaimer: Mark Corporation does NOT deal with granite stones or tiles. Mark Corporation is a manufacturer of abrasives for grinding and polishing of a wide variety of granite, and other natural stone. The know your...
