Dubai: The second edition of the Windows Doors & Facades (WDF) exhibition will present innovative and globally leading solutions to address new requirements announced by the Buildings Department at the Dubai Municipality.

The new directive prohibits the use of flammable materials and components that hinder fire resistance in facades.

The announcement is part of the Municipality’s ongoing efforts to develop construction practices through the application of the highest international standards that guarantee security and safety of Dubai’s high-rise residents. The new measures come to play following a number of global and regional blazes which revamped debate on the implementation of fire safety regulations in high-rise towers.

“Windows, Doors & Facades 2017 is the ideal opportunity for local developers and contractors to benchmark against global best practice when it comes to fire safety and security solutions,” said Muhammed Kazi, Exhibition Director of Windows, Doors & Facades 2017.

“The event will host experts that are dedicated to the development of innovative solutions made to support the industry to adapt and comply with the updated requirements of the Dubai building code,” he added.

The industry’s only dedicated platform in the region will host educational seminars to raise awareness around fire risks, in addition to the nature and characteristics of associated combustible products. Industry experts will conduct workshops covering the anticipation of behaviour of materials and structure, including how fires originate, spread and how it can be controlled and extinguished.

The showcased solutions at Windows Doors & Facades 2017 address fire safety from a “whole building” perspective. The recommended engineering approach to fire safety and security analyse and assess designs using modern tools, methodologies and performance criteria, that are in line with the goals and objectives set by Dubai’s building code.

Umur Duymaz, General Manager at Orgadata Middle East, said: “The application of fire safety engineering to the building design requires qualitative and quantitative analysis, followed by the assessment against the requirements presented in Dubai’s updated building code.
