Transrail Lighting has just completed installation of the largest signage gantry of India.
Transrail Lighting has just completed installation of the largest signage gantry of India. This 110m long gantry has been installed on the toll-plaza at Achad on the Maharashtra-Gujarat border. Thischallengingturnkeydesign,supply,installationorderis one of the 22-nos signage gantry order that was placed on Transrail Lighting by Maharashtra Border Checkpost Network Limited covering tolled- exit points from the state of Maharashtra. Transrail Lighting has designed these gantries as prefabricated, flange-bolted, octagonal engineered sections which are pre-galvanised before being shipped to site, completely eliminating the necessity of welding and painting at site. Traditionally, signage gantries have been made from pipesections which have to partially be welded at site. Weather protection is done by application of paint, typically at site. A stringent maintenance schedule of derusting exercise and repainting has to be done atleast annually to prevent rusting. Lack of this preventive maintenance results in rust stain and marks appearing on the outer surface marring the beauty of what is essentially a very prominent street architecture. Eventually, the rust drastically. effects and compromises the life of the gantry structure. In contrast, galvanized structures, such as this Achad gantry, are protected on both surfaces with zinc and have a designed life of upto 25 years. Being completely prefabricated, assembling is done just by bolting at site. Manufacturers like us have been explaining to users and specifiers the benefits of galvanization and pre-fabricated octagonal section structures over the traditional painted pipe structures. Hopefully, with more such installations, enlightened users and specifiers will go in for this newer technology and get maintenance free gantry installations which will look aesthetic for years to come. Type XI retroreflective sheets sourced from Avery Dennison has been used for the signage boards

I take great pride in sharing with you that our massive efforts at the Subroto Roy Sahara International Cricket Stadium, Pune have paid off. This stadium was inaugurated by ICC president and Union Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar on April 01, 2012 Sunday. This Godzilla amongst lighting masts has awoken. Against tough completion, based on our technical competency and presentation, the prime contractor M/S Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd. awarded to us this prestigious contract on a Design, Manufacture, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning basis. This engineering marvel of +48m height weighing over 50MT with a massive cantilevered platform of +22m was engineered based on the architectural concepts of the world renowned Sir Michael Hopkins (principal architect) and AKT(structural architects) both of UK whose mandate was a unique structure in synch with the stadium and completely different from anything else in the world. It was based on the concept of “two giant hands holding up a platter of light”. Major challenges for this one-of-a-kind double pyloned structure with multi-leveled interconnections included very low allowed tolerances, non-preassembled installation, erection from a rapidly declining window and erection done from a crane effectively 70m away from the foundation. Advanced designing and simulation techniques, never ever used in “standard” stadium-masts and software were used in this project. Structural vetting was done by IIT, Mumbai. A last-moment additional challenge was thrown at us when the final customer (MCA) insisted that the video-LED panel mounting-structure be also designed, supplied and installed by us. The video system had 54 video subpanels which required high-precision, zero-tolerance fabrication. With this stadium project also a resounding success, in this short span of around year we now have 9 stadium installations in India. We are fully geared up for even greater challenges.
