Advantages Of Kirby Products

Steel exhibits desirable physical properties that make it one of the most versatile structural materials. Some of its properties such as strength, uniformity, light weight, ease of use, etc., make it an ideal choice for construction of bridges, high rises, heavy industrial and power plants, oil & gas, and other structures.

The following advantages may be credited to steel as a structural design material:

  • Optimal & Aesthetic Designs Steel has a high strength/weight ratio. Thus, the dead weight of steel structures is relatively small. Steel can aid in innovative designs compared to concrete.
  • Enhanced Speed Of Construction Steel is highly suitable for prefabrication and mass production Steel structures can be erected quite rapidly, resulting in quicker economic payoff.
  • Earthquake Resistant Properly designed steel structures can have high ductility, which is an important characteristic for resisting shock loading, such as blasts or earthquakes.
  • Durability & Flexibility In Expansion In contrast to reinforced concrete, steel properties do not change considerably with time. Steel buildings can be easily expanded by adding new bays or wings.
  • Quality Of Construction & Ease In Maintenance Steel structures can be built with high-quality workmanship and narrow tolerances. Steel structures in general can be repaired quickly and easily.
  • Salvage Value Through Repetitive Use Steel can be reused after a structure is dismantled.
  • Site Constraints Steel is easily transportable and thus can be fabricated in a workshop, which reduces the construction time at site.

Other Product & Services

Kirby's structural steel products are custom-designed and workshop fabricated, hot rolled and welded steel structures for applications such as heavy industries, power plants, oil & gas, petrochemical industry, high-rise/commercial buildings, airports and other specialized structures. We are one of the most innovative steel structure fabricators and are always looking to enhance our range of products and services, including project execution.

Structural steel has traditionally been fabricated on-site, mainly due to lack of infrastructure for transporting heavy sections from an off-site workshop to a project site. Moreover, there is often insufficient space at a site to set up a fabrication workshop and skilled labor is available at a premium. These issues can always be mitigated by workshop-made steel structures which are proving to be more efficient in terms of quality and timelines. This helps to reduce the time and cost of execution, and is expected to fuel the demand for steel structures in future. The speed of execution is a critical factor for any large industrial or infrastructure project and is a driver for a shift towards the factory- made fabrication. The projects that took longer periods to complete a few years ago are now being executed in a shorter amount of time, resulting in a considerable amount of cost savings. Faster construction will propel the industry towards factory-made steel structures, owners and consultants will realize the advantages in terms of uniformity of finish and better quality, as asteel producers align their rolling sections as per the design needs.

Storage Solutions

Kirby is the right choice for the responsible and busy supply chain manager who believes in safety, reliability, cost effectiveness solution and optimum space utilization.

Kirby Storage Solutions Services

  • Design of racking systems
  • Supply of various racking systems with powder coating finish
  • Installation and commissioning supervision
  • Consultancy of storage solutions (material handling equipment, pallet etc.) for increased throughput

Kirby Storage Solutions Engineering & Manufacturing Standards

Kirby storage solutions uses prime quality high tensile steel from reputed steel mills as raw material which ensures guaranteed strength and rigidity of the system. The minimum yield strength of these plates is 345 Mpa. Every batch of material used is tested in our in-house quality testing lab. Products are manufactured within narrow tolerances and with automatic welding to ensure constant high quality. The surface finish can be powder coating, painting or galvanizing, as per requirements.

A safe structure is the most important aspect of any storage system. A failure during pallet handling is a real possibility in a manually-operated warehouse. At Kirby, safety is the hallmark of every stage of project execution. Kirby designs and products are based on European FEM norms which provide maximum stability to the structure, minimizing the chances of collapse. Load-bearing capacity is further ensured by Kirby's in-house functionality and load -testing facility.

Kirby Storage Solutions Advantage

As one of the premier manufacturers of storage systems, Kirby strives to provide unparalleled expertise and personalized service to our clients while providing the most competitive pricing. We specialize in Warehousing, Distribution, Archive & Records Storage, Grocery & Beverage Distribution, Retail, Pharmaceutical and Manufacturing.

Cold Roll Formed Building

Cold-formed steel structural members are shapes commonly manufactured from steel plate, sheet or strip material. The manufacturing process involves forming the material by either press-braking or cold roll-forming to achieve the desired shape. No heat is required to form the shapes (unlike hot-rolled steel), and thus the name cold- formed steel. Cold- formed steel members and other products are thinner, lighter, and easier to produce, and typically cost less than their hot-rolled steel members.

Cold-formed steel offers versatility in building because of its light weight and ease of handling and use. Cold-formed steel structures framing provides builders and consumers flexibility in design options which cannot be economically accommodated using traditional framing materials (i.e., larger open space, longer spans, and doorways).

Light Weight Steel members weigh as much as 40% less than conventional lumber, reducing total building and seismic loads.

Accessories

In addition to the main building components, Kirby provides a wide range of building accessories.

Application

Sliding Doors Sliding doors are used in hangars, warehouses, etc., where a larger opening into the building is required. They are not hinged but rather rollers are provided on top of the doors and this roller is placed on brackets allowing a sliding movement. These are either single leaf or double leaf.

Aluminum Windows These windows are placed on the walls of a building and are double slide. They are moved by a sliding action controlled by guide ways and the jab fins. Multiple windows can be formed by joining the jamb fins together. Standard size of an aluminum window is 1 m x 1m. It is also provided with a half insect screen.

Insulation These are panels made from high pressure injected polyurethane foam and are meant for insulating a building. They are CFC-free, self-extinguishing, can withstand intense heat, contain extreme low temperatures and offer very low rates of water absorption and vapor transmission. The panels also provide excellent adhesion to the panel's sheeting.

Louvers A louver is a frame containing adjustable overlapping blades which allow air flow and also block sunlight entry. The standard size available is 1m x 1m, which also incorporates insect screen, hand crank and blade adjustment lever.

Fasteners Fasteners are of self-drilling screws No. 14, made of steel wire and EPDM bonded washers. The fasteners are either plain carbon or stainless steel type.

Power Ventilators Kirby C whirlwind low silhouette extract ventilator with spun aluminum non-return shutter and one piece base and throat. Provides ventilation when there is no wind and is placed on top of the roof panels.

Skylights & Wall Lights Made of translucent GRP to match Kirby rib and wall panels, with an estimated light transmitting capacity of 60 %.

Ridge Ventilators This is a gravity-type ventilator which is provided with a bird screen and mechanical controlled damper. Allows natural ventilation of the building. Roof Jacks

Roof Jacks These are enclosures for pipes or stacks projecting from the roof. They allow for safe working on the roof.

Roof Curbs These are enclosures for ducts or other roof projections made up of reinforced plastic fitting Kirby rib roof panels.

Sand Trap Louvers This louver consists of different form of flashings arrangement in a predetermined manner in order to create a sand trap. The dual advantages of the sand trap louver is not only to help with natural ventilation but also to act as a sand trap.
