TARA GreenCast Channels

Business Highlight

The TARA GreenCast is a highly profitable business for small building material producers and construction companies. A total capital investment of Rs. 7,80,000/- is required for a mechanized production system to produce 360 square metres of roofing product in the form of ferrocement roofing channels per month with an annual turnover of Rs. 35 Lacs.

The TARA GreenCast package for roofing uses state-of-the-art design principles to manufacture reinforced shells, commonly called channels. They are produced on specially designed TARA vibrating tables and profiled moulds. The production system is uniquely tailored to provide special end details, consistent shape and thickness; all crucial for high performance. The channels made with an optimised proportion of cement, sand and water, have a very high density, are impervious to penetration of water and provide high structural strength. Ferrocement roofing technology offers a viable alternative to conventional flat roofing systems such as reinforced cement concrete, reinforced brick cement, sand stone, etc. in both rural and urban areas of the country. Compared to RCC roofing, the ferrocement roofing channels offer savings in steel (30%) and cement (35%).

Service Package

  • TARA supplies the complete set of production equipment consisting of vibrating table, moulds, lifting frame and accessories
  • TARA provides the technology package with production layout, design mix and comprehensive documentation
