The Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs & Trademarks has recently granted six registrations to the innovative products of APL Apollo Tubes Limited. With these fresh registrations, the overall portfolio for APL Apollo Tubes has risen to 16. APL Apollo Tubes said “This is an affirmation of our innovative aspiration to create new market for structural steel tubes and redefine how infrastructure development is planned in India. These products will be used in various building material applications and would replace existing conventional construction products like wood, aluminum, concrete and steel angles and channels.”The structural steel tubes provide the ability to design with flexibility, without compromising on the durability and strength of the structure. In addition to this, construction with Tubular Steel Structures is faster with better seismic resistance and the resultant structure has higher carpet area, all at substantially lesser costs than conventional construction models, including RCC structures. Moreover, Tubular constructions are more sustainable and environment friendly, without any water or air pollution emanating due to the construction process, thus aligning well with the Ministry of Steel's rallying call of #SteelForGreen.
