Tata BlueScope Steel why preferred choice for cladding in metro and railway?

Tata BlueScope Steel has constantly evolved and launched some of the most innovative and leading solutions in steel roofing, cladding and decking over the years
 Tata BlueScope Steel, a joint venture between Tata Steel and BlueScope Steel (Australia), has marked its presence on the Indian metro and railway, significantly. Over the years, its brands like COLORBOND and LYSAGHT have grown to become the preferred choice for steel roofing and wall cladding.
The company has supplied more than 5-lakh square metres of LYSAGHT roof and wall-cladding profiles made from premium quality COLORBOND XRW steel for railway and metro projects across the major cities including Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru and Mumbai.
The Indian Railways along with RVNL selected steel roofing for the various stations not only because of the longer life, better spanning capability and aesthetically pleasing appearance of steel but also due to the minimal maintenance required. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was impressed with the advantages that COLORBOND steel offered over its competition due to the high-corrosion resistance metallic coating of the ZINCALUME steel base and the super durable polyester XRW quality paint system. The paint system has stable super durable polyester resin and 100 per cent inorganic pigments with IR reflective (Thermatech) technology, offering better thermal efficiency and high colour durability. Also, COLORBOND steel is more environment friendly as compared to other construction materials, making it an ideal choice for infrastructure projects such as the MRTS.
The LYSAGHT brand has been associated with almost all major railway stations in the eastern and southern part of the country as well as all major metro and monorail projects. LYSAGHT KLIPLOK, a concealed fixed roofing system and SMARTDEK 51, an innovative and precision engineered structural decking system were supplied for the stations of the first-of-its-kind Mumbai Monorail project. LYSAGHT KLIP-LOK profile is compatible for roof-top solar solutions. The range of products was chosen due to the higher durability, unique design and long-lasting aesthetics that they offer as compared to competitor products.
