DUBAI: The new fire safety codes to make buildings in the country safer for the residents are being studying and will be implemented within a month. The UAE has always been at the forefront of ensuring proactive safety regulations in the Middle East.

This was disclosed by Civil Defence officials at a workshop held at Grand Hyatt hotel in Dubai on Sunday.

The workshop on fire rated facades, understanding of new UAE fire codes, approved aluminium claddings and full assembly system was organised by Dubai-based Alubond USA and attended by architects, engineers, contractors, Civil Defence officials, Dubai Municipality and others. During the workshop, the organisers have also unveiled Alubond A2 panel, a high grade composite panel and also the highest fire rated metal composite panel in the world.

Shajiul Mulk from Alubond USA, in his opening remarks, pointed that it came as no surprise that the recent fire incidents had only strengthened the resolve of the nation to prevent any such incidents and work towards a comprehensive fire and life safety code. At the general headquarters of Civil Defence — UAE, its team of fire safety experts drafted the new code of practice, and already started its implementation for exterior cladding application, at a brisk pace.

“Alubond USA has taken the lead in the resolve for building fire safety, and introduced the first A2 fire resistant aluminum composite panels in the United Arab Emirates. This makes Alubond the only aluminium composite panel, fully compliant with the UAE life and fire safety code for exterior cladding applications. As a market leader in aluminium composite wall systems, Alubond has once again led the initiative, ahead of the new code enforcement, as the only aluminium composite panel brand in the UAE to introduce A2 fire rated cladding and comply with all the requirements of the new UAE fire and life safety code of practice,” he added.
