Tata Steel launches nation's first wire mesh Sm@rtFAB
Kolkata: Tata Steel, the flagship company of the Tata Group, recently launched Sm@rtFAB, a new construction reinforcement solution. This is India's first branded welded wire fabric, commonly known as wire mesh.
The prefabricated reinforcement solution, which was unveiled at a function held in Dubai on March 22, 2018, aims to bring speed, value and convenience to construction projects.
Sm@rtFAB was formally unveiled by Tata Steel CEO & MD T V Narendran and Tata Steel TQM & Steel Business President Anand Sen at the inaugural Construction Conclave that was organised by the Industrial Products, Projects and Exports (IPPE)) department of Tata Steel in Dubai.
Sm@rtFAB is made of cold worked and ribbed wire rods which are fused together using electrical resistance fusion welding giving the fabricated sheet the desirable strength to be used as reinforcement.
It is available in diameters ranging from 5 mm to 12 mm in an interval of 1 mm and is completely customised as per the project's design requirement. Tata Steel produces a wide range of reinforcement products which serve major construction companies across India.
Speaking on the launch of the brand, Narendran said, "Tata Steel has always tried to capture the market requirements and develop products and solutions suitable for each market. Introduction of Sm@rtFAB to the range of construction solutions offered to customers is a continuation of this journey."
