In Today’s scenario of rising cost of steel, it is most essential to use such products that provide optimum utilization such as least possible weight without compromising on the strength and custom lengths and punches for faster application and installation. Cold Roll Formed sections are the perfect replacement for the heavy, unviable traditionally formed sections. Cold-formed sections hold a superior edge in comparison to other traditionally produced sections.

The following advantages are offered by cold-formed sections :

      • Better strength to weight ratio.
      • High rigidity due to use of High Tensile Steel saves weight and hence, cost.
      • Flexibility in thickness and custom lengths can be offered.
      • Complex geometrical shapes can be produced.
      • Closer tolerances of the produced sections.
      • Better consistency and accuracy are achieved.
      • Smoother and Better surface finish.
      • Sections directly from Galvanized or Color Coated coils can be formed.
      • On-line cutting and custom punching increases production speed and cost.
      • Better and consistent chemical and mechanical properties achieved.



 A Case for Roll Formed Sectiond vis-a-vis convential Hot Rolled Sections
 Hot Rolled Sections  Cold Rolled Sections
Low Strength-to-weight ratio Very high strenght-to-weight ratio
Available without any surface finish Sections provided with painted, powder-coated, galvanized or polyurethane-coated surface finish depanding on customer's requirements.
Sections require frequent maintance Sections are maintance free owing to application of proper surface finish
Self-weight requires heavier sectiond for the structures and its supports there by ioad on foundation Light section reduce dead load and consequently lighter sections for structures and supports. Thus, the load on fundation is bare minimum
High wastage since sectiond are available only in standard lengths and shapes Sections are factory-finished to avoid wastage
Insallation time high since sections need to be cut length nad fabricated to site Factory-finished sections drastically reduce installation time
Only standard sections are available Optimum sections to meet exacting design specifactions: no over design possible
Factory of safety sections available Additional factory of saftey due to increase in yield strength by cold forming





oday, due to its superior nature, cold rolled sections have replaced the traditionally formed sections in many modern and conventional industry. These sections are now a lead choice of designers, architects and builders. Some applications of these sections are mentioned as under:



Automobile Industry:

Several different type of sections are used in making of chassis, bus body, body and framework of tippers and trolleys, goods carriers and other private and commercial vehicles.

Civil Construction:

Pre-Engineered buildings all now apply C and Z purlins for shed construction. Decking profile is used for flooring purpose. Shutter profile is used in rolling shutters.

Solar Mounting Structures:

Cold roll formed sections provide the perfect structural support for solar mounting structures. They trigger significant reductions in overall weight of the structure and increase strength. Plain and Lipped C channels are used as longitudinal supports, cross members and Purlins. Mounting rails and Hat Section are also used as purlin alternatives.

Strut Support System:

Strut profile support system provides flexible and economical support solution for mechanical and electrical services such as in cable tray application.

Storage System:

Strut sections, Lipped Channels, Plain C Channel are used for preparing several types of storage racks.

Furniture and Office Equipment:

Various types of sections are used in furnitures for asthetic appeal and durability. Used in modular seating and partitions etc.
