Ramco Institute of Technology is located at the foot hills of Western Ghats, 85 KM south of Madurai. The institute provides a serene and healthy environment for the students. The institute provides state-of-the-art infrastructure such as well-equipped labs, spacious class rooms, hi-tech teaching aids, auditorium and a well-stocked library.
Ramco Institute of Technology is situated in Rajapalayam, where the climate is semi-arid and the temperature range is 20 °C to 37 °C. It has a high mean temperature. The Mess Hall is a large independent building with a seating capacity for hundreds of students. Regular students make use of the facility during lunch recess and the Hostel wards make use of it during their meal times. The Institute opted for Greencor Non-Asbestos roofing sheets because metal roofing sheets raise the ambient temperature inside the hall to uncomfortable levels moreover, they corrode easily exposing the students to the elements.
The Mess Hall required roofing sheets that are durable, long lasting and provide a comfortable dining experience for the students.
Ramco Greencor – Non-asbestos Fibre Roofing Sheets
Made of high quality non-asbestos fibre & cement, Ramco Greencor is the new age roofing sheet. Unlike metal roofing sheets, it is not affected by pollution or marine environments. It stays strong and provides a perfect working condition for years.
|Sl.No||Properties||GI Metal Sheets||Greencor Sheet||Inference|
|1||Material||Galvanised Iron||Cement, Fly Ash, Synthetic Fibre (Polyvinyl Alcohol Fibre)||Zero maintenance, Resistance to natural weathering / corrosion|
|2||Sound||High Noise Pollution||Zero Noise Pollution||Greencor ensures calm and quiet environment|
|3||Heat Difference (deg C)||Absorbs heat, hence warmer than the outer temperature||Keeps the interior 4-5 deg. C cooler in summer and warmer in winter||Greencor reduces the temperature from exteriors and maintains the internal temperature comfortable|
|4||Lightning and Power||Conducts & Affects||Does not conduct and aﬀect||Greencor is unaffected by Lightning and Power hence ensures a safe environment for the inmates.|
|5||Thermal Conductivity (λ) (W/mK)||20||0.113||Greencor is unaffected by Lightning and Power hence ensures a safe environment for the inmates.|
|6||Load Bearing Strength N/m||Not Available||3920||Greencor Load Bearing Strength is good|
|7||Non- combustibility||Poor||Excellent||Greencor is Non-combustible / Fire resistance|
|9||Life||8 Years||40 Years||Greencor stays longer when compared to all metal sheets.|
|10||Chemical Resistance||Poor||Excellent||Excellent chemical resistance|
|11||Vapour Permeability||Poor||Good||Condensation is controlled because of its breathing property|
|12||Deform Stability||Satisfactory||Good||Aesthetics - Dimensional stability good|
