Newly launched Steel Building Solutions (SBS) by APL Apollo

As part of their endeavour to offer the latest innovations, APL Apollo has recently launched the next-generation steel building solutions that should revolutionize the construction industry. Building materials that are of excellent quality, offer value for money, improve project execution time and remain environmentally friendly would greatly benefit the construction industry. Tubular structural steel construction solutions help the industry to build faster and better.

Tubes are currently used only in 10-15% of the structure to make the truss, bracing, joist, column and facade. The reasons for low utilisation are the lack of availability of larger sizes, limited size range, wastage, large MoQ and the lead time. APL Apollo, with its new range, is set to disrupt the status quo. With sizes ranging from 12x12mm to 500x500mm, and 1000x1000mm to be launched soon, APL Apollo is the largest producer and supplier of structural steel tubes in India with about 55% of the market share.

Over 6000 tons of ERW tubes per day are manufactured at plants of APL Apollo. The tubes are cut into the desired length (of 4-12m) in the CTL Line to minimise wastage and the cut-to-length tubes are transferred to the fabricator’s workshop. The tubes are sandblasted and then connected using connectors. The connected structures are painted and the structure parts are transferred to the construction site. The civil foundation is laid and the anchor bolts are arranged at the site to install tube columns. The entire construction is completed with zero on-site fabrication resulting in quick and efficient project completion with minimum wastage.

Tubular construction solutions are perfect for hospitals,housing, schools,courts,high-rise buildings,hotels,malls,offices,warehouses,cold storage,food parks,factory buildings,process structures,oxygen plants,aviation hangers, data centres and more.

If you compare the steel structure to the standard RCC structure from a cost-benefit analysis point of view, you will find that the steel structure is extremely cost-effective and saves a significant amount of time as well. It takes 8 days per slab for steel structure while it is around 24 days per slab for RCC structure.

If you look at the revenue analysis, tubular steel structures offer 2% additional carpet area with advanced revenue/cash flows and reduced construction time. The superstructure is ready 65% faster offering financial cost savings and early commencement of the project.

Using an RCC structure will push up the project cost by 5% i.e. around Rs 250-300 per sq.ft. Overall using the steel structure will push project IRR up by 1.5% while offering 2% additional area.

Moreover, tubular steel solutions are environmentally friendly causing no air pollution and aiding in water conservation. Steel is recyclable, has superior strength, is earthquake resistant and offers extra clear height up to 6%.

The construction of buildings contributes to 30% of indirect and indirect CO2 emissions.  Structural steel is preferred for buildings because steel can be recycled multiple times.Studies have shown that the replacement of RCC with steel structures can reduce emission by 60%. The tubular steel solutions offered by APL Apollo are expected to usher in a revolution in the construction industry with far-reaching benefits to all stakeholders and a positive impact on the environment.

How to select the right steel doors that match your interior design!

You must have often heard the expression,” You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.” Your main door is the first impression that you create when you have visitors and it gives them a fair idea of what lies inside. The main door is critical when it comes to safety and security apart from aesthetics and it is essential that you apply your mind before finalising this important aspect of your home. Interior doors are equally important but they need not be as strong as the main door for obvious reasons.

Wood and steel are the main options available for doors. In today’s times when people are becoming more aware of the environment and the need to conserve the same, leading to a conscious shift to steel doors that combine strength and aesthetics while saving trees leading to a win-win proposition for all concerned

Steel doors have an edge over traditional wooden doors because of their strength and durability and with modern cutting-edge technology, they have incorporated an element of aesthetics and elegance to create a piece that can accentuate the beauty of your home.

Broadly you would need three types of doors

  • Main Door
  • Interior Doors
  • Bathroom Doors

You will need to make sure that the doors are aligned with your interior design to enhance the ambience of your home. The location and size of the doors are important considerations that will help you choose the right steel doors for your home. Remember the main door needs to be extra strong and durable while the interior doors need to be functional. So the strength of the steel gauge can vary depending on the purpose for which you choose it.

Beautiful Homes with APL Apollo have a mobile app called Aalishaan that can help you select the best door designs that can blend perfectly with the interior design of your home. They can offer you an inspiration to select the right designs from their wide range of doors to enhance the beauty of your residence. Apollo Chaukhat and Apollo Wondoor combine to create complete door solutions that combine aesthetics and durability to create timeless pieces that are in synchronization with your layout.

You can use the Aalishaan app to contact the fabricators directly and get them to assemble the doors as per your requirements. The weight calculator will help you estimate the amount of steel required for the doors and work out the cost.

Steel doors with a wooden paint finish are the trending choice for modern homes as they combine elegance with strength and provide a green solution that is environmentally friendly. Being long-lasting and providing recyclability, Apollo steel doors and chaukhat are fast replacing wood as the choice of the modern environment-conscious generation.

How coloured structural steel products are trending

The construction industry is always on the lookout for innovations and colour-coated structural steel sheets have become an important material for building projects. Prepainted steel sheets are being increasingly used in a wide range of applications including industrial roofs, cladding, warehouses[1] , sheds, automobile bodies, solar panels, atriums, malls, and so on. The manufacturing process of colour-coated steel involves using liquid paint to coat the coiled steel. This gives it a strong, uniform colour coating that gives the steel anti-corrosive properties and makes it more durable.

Steel is literally the backbone of a growing economy and it is used in an array of diverse industries. Whether it is a humble safety pin or a surgical instrument or an automobile or a building, steel has a role to play. Over a period of time, due to atmosphere corrosion, steel tends to be affected and requires replacement. Colour-coated steel has a protective coating that helps prevent corrosion and offers a longer life combined with aesthetic looks, recyclability etc. Replacing normal steel with colour-coated steel products in various industries will lead to faster project completion, better looks and lower costs in the long run. The plethora of applications where colour-coated steel offers an attractive replacement option makes it a popular choice.

Colour-coated steel is lightweight and strong making it perfect for industrial use. It offers a variety of alternatives for architects and designers to choose from. Being prepainted saves them a lot of time and costs without compromising on the look and finish. Moreover, it is eco-friendly keeping in mind the challenges of climate change and the problems associated with it.
