Metro Maker

Tata BlueScope Steel's LYSAGHT® have been used in prominent projects such as DMRC, Chennai Metro, Hyderabad Metro, Kochi Metro, and Bangalore Metro, among others.

Tata BlueScope Steel (TBSL) has supplied more than 1,600 MT of colour coated steel in the form of roofing and building products for most of the metro projects in India. LYSAGHT®, a leading brand of TBSL, has executed more than 3 lakh sq m of roofing for prominent metro projects across the country. The brand's profiles such as KLIPLOK® 700 and TRIMDEK® 1015 have been used in projects such as DMRC, Chennai Metro, Hyderabad Metro, Kochi Metro, and Bangalore Metro, among others. LYSAGHT® has established itself as a preferred choice for roofing applications in this segment.

Precision guaranteed!
TRIMDEK® 1015 roofing sheets have been installed at over 120 stations in the eastern part of our country alone. Design requirements such as curved roofs, whether convex or concave can be achieved easily with TRIMDEK® 1015's crimp curved sheets that ensure strength with aesthetics.

This modern ribbed roof and wall cladding profile with subtle fluting in the pans, provide strength and long spanning capabilities. The brand is associated with the Indian Railways since 2008 and has supplied more than 4 lakh sq m roofing till date. LYSAGHT® was an obvious choice for the supply of roofing and decking profiles for the Mumbai Monorail project. The project has been successfully completed with LYSAGHT KLIPLOK® 770, a concealed fixed roofing system and LYSAGHT SMARTDEK® 51, an innovative and precision engineered decking system. LYSAGHT® range of products was chosen due to its high durability, aesthetics and cost effectiveness. The profiles are also compatible with specially designed clamps that help solar panels mounting easy on roof tops.

Additionally, LYSAGHT® also supplied 24,000 sq m of KLIPLOK® 700 for the roofing of Kolkata Metro. The uniqueness of this project lies in LYSAGHT®'s onsite crimping facility that not only ensured faster project completion with immediate installation and cost-effective solution, but also prevented profiles from damage or stress cracks.

Safety with performance
While LYSAGHT® profiles cater to varied segments and offer cost efficiency (due to optimised steel solutions), shorter lead time, high strength (with design flexibility), superior quality paint and coating system (with long lasting aesthetics); the brand promotes best safety practices in construction and manufacturing. TBSL safety standards and 'zero harm policy' guarantees utmost safety.

LYSAGHT® profiles are made from high strength, corrosion-resistant and tried and tested raw materials such as COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel; they are especially crafted for harsh weather conditions. Performance with aesthetics is what COLORBOND® steel offers where a monotonous structure transforms into an architecturally appealing piece of work.

Colourful steel roofing
After using galvanised steel for the first three stations, DMRC opted for zinc and aluminium alloy based COLORBOND® steel, solely on the merit of its benefits. COLORBOND® steel in colours surfmist, pale eucalypt, sky blue and torres blue were used to suit the specific ambient requirements of each station. This was the first colourful steel roofing being used for an infrastructure project like railways. COLORBOND® steel with its 100 per cent lead free paint technology is environment-friendly compared to other construction materials. COLORBOND® comes with THERMATECH™ solar reflectance technology that ensures lower temperature by absorbing less heat from the sun, making it thermally efficient, and therefore, ideal for infrastructure projects.

Tata BlueScope Steel is fully committed to enable India to create a world-class MRT system.
