Mulk Holdings and Alubond has introduced new A2 fire rated cladding, in compliance with all the requirements of the new UAE fire and life safety code of practice.

Chairman and founder of Mulk Holdings that owns the brand Alubond U.S.A Fire Rated Panel Systems, Nawab Shaji Ul Mulk, said: “We would like to set a precedent in the UAE market that when it comes to fire safety, there is no compromise. Alubond will offer the safest cladding solutions as per global standards to the UAE market.”

He stated, “We are committed to the fire safe awareness programme and will be conducting a series of seminars for fire consultants, fabricators, property owners and architects. The new regulations have amply covered the future and under construction buildings. However, we also want to close the safety requirements for existing buildings. We are still determined to propose solutions to the regulatory authorities and consultants for existing buildings and hope to see further amendments in the UAE fire code.”

UAE Civil Defence and its team of fire safety experts has drafted the new code of practice, and has already started its implementation for exterior cladding application.

Alubond U.S.A is the first aluminium composite panel in the UAE market, to have tested successfully for the complete aluminium composite wall systems, according to the American test standards for NFPA 285, recognised by the UAE civil defence.
