Gulf Extrusions (Gulfex) has launched the Middle East’s first fully tested fire rated aluminium door
According to the company, the Fire-X87 has been “proven to significantly reduce fire risk and promote higher levels of safety and security”, withstanding temperatures in excess of 900 degrees Celsius for an hour and a half during testing.
“The integral element of Fire-X87 is its breakthrough design,” said Gulf Extrusions commercial director Ihab Mouallem. “We carefully studied the effect of fire and smoke on aluminium and glass to help us develop the right system that can withstand fire for 90 minutes, with an end goal of reducing risks and protecting people.”
The Emirati firm, which specialises in the manufacture of extruded aluminium products, said the door was tested in accordance with all relevant international fire regulations and standards at the Thomas Bell Wright Fire Testing facilities in Dubai.
“The successful fire test demonstrated that our efforts have been paying off,” Mouallem continued. “Rest assured that we will continue with our commitment to provide top-notch products to the industry.
“Needless to say, we are proud to introduce our first fully tested fire rated aluminium door to the market, which is the first in the Middle East region and reflects true Emirati standard of excellence.”
