Builders’ First Choice
Are you a builder? Be part of the growing list of professional builders who have made TIGER TMT iron rods, the best iron rods in Nigeria, their first choice.
Importance of Iron Rods in Construction Process
Iron rods are a major input in the construction process. Either in residential building, institutional and commercial building, specialized industrial building, or infrastructure and heavy construction, reinforced concrete is intertwined with iron rods to strengthen and hold the concrete in the tension.
Though concrete on its own is strong in compression, it is relatively weak in tension. Hence, iron rods are important to compensate for such deficiency. Casting iron rods into concrete, it is able to carry tensile loads. This also increases the overall strength of the concrete.
The Best Iron Rod for Construction
There are different types of iron rods but the best are Thermo-Mechanically-Treated (TMT) iron rod. In the manufacturing process of TMT iron rods, hot steel billets are passed through quenching process. This makes the surface hard and keeps the core warmer and softer. This is the reason why TMT iron rods are ductile, corrosion-resistant and have perfect weldability, compared to local iron rods.
TMT iron rods have less residual stresses and are used in construction to protect against earthquake and other natural disasters.
Make TIGER TMT your first choice
As a professional builder, you should not choose any TMT brand without considering its quality; make TIGER TMT iron rods your first choice. TIGER TMT iron rods are high quality iron rods for superior bonding with concrete. They are produced with unmatchable yield strength.
Application of TIGER TMT iron rods
TIGER TMT iron rods are used in:
- general purpose concrete reinforcement structures;
- thermal and hydel power plants;
- houses; and
- other critical structures.
Why you should make TIGER TMT your first choice
TIGER TMT iron rods are produced with the most advanced 3D laser technology which ensures proper bonding with cement and concrete.
High Temperature and Fire Resistance
TIGER TMT iron rods contain accurate chemistry and physical properties that make them withstand extreme temperature. They also have thermal stability that ensures the safety of the structure during fire outbreak.
High Yield Strength
TIGER TMT iron rods are produced with high yield strength. This makes them ideal for commercial construction projects such as dams, bridges, high rises, corporate or individual buildings, industrial construction, heavy civil construction and other construction types that require high yield strength.
Perfect ductility and Malleability
TIGER TMT iron rods pass through automated quenching process that gives them perfect ductility. This enables the iron rods to withstand earthquakes and other natural disasters. More so, TIGER TMT iron rods can be bent without breaking or cracking because they have gone through fatigue test that gives them perfect elongation.
TIGER TMT iron rods also have excellent weldability without loss of strength at welded joints.
Greater Corrosion Resistance
TIGER TMT iron rods contain low carbon content that gives them greater corrosion resistance. This makes them superior in quality compared to other brands.

Build House for Generations
Having the desire to build a house is very good. However, you should not just be interested in building a house but one that many generations after you will cherish and call home. Your house should be able to stand the test of time and outlive you.
- But how would you achieve this great feat?
- What would the house look like?
- What location would you prefer?
- How would you get a professional architect that can and will bring your dream design to life?
- What kind of building materials would you use?
Though all the questions above are important and must be answered accurately, the most important of all is the one on building materials. This is true because a house that is built for generations will fulfil certain conditions. The quality of the materials used will determine if the house will:
- be able to survive with or without people living there;
- be able to survive the worst of natural disasters;
- not deteriorate, crack or spall;
- not be razed down by fire, no matter how raging the fire is;
- not affected by (even) the harshest weather; and
- not crumble as a result of climate change.
A modern house that will fulfil the conditions above must be built with concrete reinforced with high quality iron rods because such a house requires high capital outlay and quality implications. A reinforced concrete structure with corrosion-resistance will last long.
Build with Thermo-Mechanically-Treated Iron Rods
If you are interested in building a house that will benefit generations, you must insist on high quality TMT iron rods. TMT iron rods give buildings high yield strength as they have a soft inner core wrapped in a hardened outer surface. They contain the right chemistry and go through automated cooling process. They also possess combination of tensile strength and ductility.
They are used in construction for enhanced protection against natural disasters, fire outbreak, moisture, corrosion and extreme temperature.

Building Your Dreams
One of the dreams cherished by everybody is to be a homeowner. Shelter is the basic need of man after food. But the dream of some very ambitious people does not stop at just building a home. They have the desire to embark on other large building projects such as office spaces, plazas, malls, or shops to rent or lease out.
Whichever one you are interested in, there are crucial steps you have to take to make your building/construction project a reality. You have to engage in thorough planning in order not to encounter hitches that may lead to abandonment. Here are some ideas for you.
Let your dream be bigger than you
Having a dream that is bigger than you means that you should not just dream of embarking on a building project. Dream of building/construction project that will be a source of pride, not only to you but also to your family and everyone who beholds it right from the foundation level to the completion stage. To achieve this, you have to:
- come up with accurate budget/costing;
- work with a team of building experts; and
- purchase only high quality building materials.
Get accurate budget and costs
You have saved up or gathered money for your dream house or that big project. Your planning should not stop there. You have to make a list of everything you need. Ensure you do not miss any important detail. This will enable you to know if the money you have is enough or you need to source for more funds.
Your budget should cover:
- the cost of land in your preferred location;
- architectural designs;
- payment for necessary approvals;
- cost of building materials from start to completion stage;
- and cost for the general construction.
Gather and work with a team of building experts
In order to build a solid structure that will be long-lasting, you need the services of professional architect, builder, dealer, suppliers, exterior and interior designers. The architect will help with a quality design just the way you have always pictured it. The builder will ensure that your building meets all safety standards. The dealer’s duty will be to liaise with the suppliers to ensure that only quality building materials are acquired and supplied.
You will not get the building/construction project of your dream by patronising roadside or self-acclaimed building designers and contractors.
Buy only genuine building materials
Your journey to building a solid structure will be consolidated by patronising professionals and buying genuine materials. One of the decisions you will have to make is the choice of iron rods to use. This is because iron rods, combined with concrete are the major components that will give your building a long lifespan.
