WHAT IS THE
BUILDMAX ADVANTAGE


The GBR BuildMax Advantage is the culmination of years of expertise distilled into a single product. The product development focussed on ensuring that we can deliver the Maximum Strength, Maximum Savings and Maximum Quality to the end customer and the building of their dreams.

A customer oriented thought process enabled us to focus on details and bring about innovations such as standardised and sealed packaging. This combined with a state of the art facility and laboratories and a commitment to adhere to the highest standards is what gives GBR TMT the BuildMax Advantage.




Fe- 550 GRADE


GBR TMT undergoes a PLC controlled on line thermo mechanical treatment which ensures strength and consistency. This allows us to maintain the following:

• 0.2% proof stress values higher than 550 N/mm2
• Tensile strength values higher than 585 N/mm2




SAVINGS ON STEEL CONSUMPTION


Use of GBR TMT Fe-550 can lead up to 10% savings on steel consumption at site as compared to general Fe-500 grade TMT Bars. *

STANDARDIZED AND SEALED PACKAGING


Each of our lots come packaged with tamper proof strapping for your convenience. The strapping ensures better inventory management and easier cross verification of stock on site.

STANDARDIZED PIECES PER BUNDLE


8mm 10 bars 16mm 3 bars
10mm 7 bars 20mm 2 bars
12mm 5 bars 25mm 1 bar
(Straight material is packaged in 2 M.T. bundles).




STRICT ADHERENCE TO BIS NORMS


Our state-of-the-art laboratories and a team trained professionals ensure a process of continuous testing to maintain consistency in adherence to the norms specified in IS 1786:2008. Additionally, each dispatch is accompanied by our test certificate and details the lots chemical and physical properties.

PRECISE RIB PATTERN


GBR TMT bars have precise rib patterns that match industry leaders and are in strict adherence to prescribed norms for deformation and surface characteristics in the IS 1786:2008 code. This results in excellent bond with the concrete.

COVERED STORAGE


Our entire inventory is stored in a covered shed in uniform lots. This helps in minimizing the oxidation on the surface of the bar.



40 FEET LENGTH


We maintain the length of our bars at 40 feet lengths or 12.192 metres in conjunction with national and international norms.



SUPERIOR SERVICE & COVERAGE


Our experienced dispatch team and a vast network of dealers across Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh will ensure ready availability and on time delivery for your site.
