Timesofummah.com – PT Krakatau Steel (Persero) Tbk together with PT Tata Metal Lestari (Tatalogam Group) developed the KRASHome product, namely a residential building made from modern steel construction with the Light Pre-Engineered Building (Light PEB) concept. With this technology, building construction will be faster.
The cooperation started after the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two parties. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the Director of Business Development of Krakatau Steel, Purwono Widodo and Vice President of PT Tata Metal Lestari, Stephanus Koeswandi.
“This KRASHome is the result of a combination of Cold-Form Galvalume Steel structural design with the use of high-quality materials. The Light Pre-Engineered Building concept means that the construction is light and easy to assemble,” explained Purwono in a written statement, Sunday (3/4/2022).
Raw Material for KRASHome Technology
The raw material for Cold-Form Galvalume Steel used by PT Tata Metal Lestari is a product of Cold Rolled Coil (CRC) Krakatau Steel with full hard SPCC 1D CRC specifications.
Purwono added that an effective and efficient KRASHome installation system resulted in a strong and fast building construction. The use of purlin steel or high strength (hi-ten) galvanized coated steel for the entire main structure of aluminum-zinc coated steel, makes the building’s service life longer and economical.
“All Purlin steel components are produced with a cut to length system (as needed) so that no material is wasted. Bolt holes are also made automatically and are integrated with Purlin steel production so as to produce more precise products,” Purwono continued.
Vice President of Tata Metal Lestari, Stephanus Koeswandi said, Tata Metal Lestari had already innovated by making light steel construction-based housing aimed at housing, both commercial housing and temporary housing and permanent housing in disaster-affected locations.
“The distinctive feature of PT Tata Metal Lestari’s steel-based housing is that the assembly process is easy and relatively fast, because that is what is needed in disaster-affected areas. From there, we initiated similar things aimed at building employee mess facilities such as KRASHome. The difference with our previous products, KrasHome is designed for a larger capacity. It can be built on 2 or 3 floors that can be occupied by hundreds of people safely and comfortably, “said Stephanus.
