LYSAGHT® brand added another feather in its cap when it was chosen to supply roofing and decking profiles to first-of-its-kind Mumbai Monorail Project. LYSAGHT® range of products were chosen due to their high durability, aesthetics and cost effectiveness. The project has been successfully carried out with LYSAGHT KLIPLOK® 770, a concealed fixed roofing system and LYSAGHT SMARTDEK® 51, an innovative and precision engineered decking system.

Today the LYSAGHT® brand has executed more than 3 lakh square meter of roofing area in some of the most prominent METRO projects across the country.

LYSAGHT® brand has established itself as a preferred choice for roofing applications in this segment.

Some of the common challenges that Tata BlueScope Steel has successfully overcome while working on projects for the railways/ METROS include:

Some proposed station buildings were typically curved (both convex & concave) Considering this specific requirement of curved profiles, LYSAGHT® offered an innovative product, LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® 1015 CRIMP CURVED SHEETS and ‘Z’ PURLINS.
Requirement of best quality material with adequate strength to endure high levels of stress and strain in case of contingencies like heavy rains, high uplift wind load and vibrational loads etc. LYSAGHT® offered high strength, corrosion resistant and tested profile made from raw materials such as COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel
Requirement of shorter delivery time and to cover multiple stations simultaneously Pertinent planning was carried out across engineering, SCM & PPC to meet the strict project completion deadlines and counter the production output requirements
Requirement of Solar Panel Mounting arrangement over roof tops Use of LYSAGHT KLIPLOK® 700 profile with specially designed clamps to fix PV panel on roof tops was offered as standard solution.
Safe working over height and on curved shaped structure was major threat to the execution team Tata BlueScope Steel’s safety standards and “ZERO Harm” policy guaranteed the completion of work with utmost safety
