Apollo Column comes out as a game changer in the construction industry

Amid a shift towards high-performance materials in structural engineering, Apollo Column has assumed greater significance due to its high weight-bearing capacity and enhanced construction speed.

 New Delhi (India), November 01: Apollo Column, India’s largest range of hollow steel sections (HSS), has emerged as the perfect choice for every type of construction. Especially in the Pre-Engineered Buildings segment, it has become an essential feature due to its high weight-bearing capacity and enhanced construction speed. Apollo Column offers hollow steel sections up to 300x300mm in size.

APL Apollo Tubes Limited (APL Apollo), one of the leading branded steel tubes manufactures, has transformed the future of building and construction with this exclusive product range. Apollo Column is known as the heart of Pre-Engineered Building (PEB) due to its superior quality, sturdiness, and ease of bending, punching and drilling.

Mr. Sanjay Gupta, CMD, APL Apollo, said, “The popularity of HSS in construction has increased considerably over the years as engineers have become aware of the advantages of steel tubes. While the HSS are very efficient sections, the closed shape and relatively large moment of inertia about the weak axis make Apollo Column highly resistant against the torsional effects. Apart from their engineering properties, a wide range of benefits are inherent in their shape. Moreover, the architects and engineers can also take advantage of the modern and aesthetically pleasing appearance of Apollo Column.”

Apollo Columns are used extensively in multi-storey buildings, industrial buildings, commercial centres, warehouses, foot overbridges, parking shelters and fuel stations, just to name a few. While the PEB has already seen tremendous growth in the last decade over the conventional building, Apollo Columnenjoys a distinct competitive advantage as the game changer in construction, especially in the PEB construction segment.

Apollo Column is also 10-20% cheaper than conventional PEB; hence it also reduces the overall cost of PEB construction significantly in addition to bringing considerable reduction in weight which further brings down the cost of transportation. Apart from all these benefits, these hollow sections have a lower surface area; hence in those applications where paint is required, it results in using less material and reducing application time, both of which reduces costs. Furthermore, the smooth corners in HSS structures reduce susceptibility to corrosion which lessens the life cycle cost.
