Vetrotech, the world's leading manufacturer of fire-resistant glass and specialist providers of multifunctional specialised glass solutions, has strengthened its presence in the Middle Eastern market.
Contractors, specifiers and installers within the Middle East can now access Vetrotech’s range of fire-resistant & high-security glass. The company is in the process of establishing a long-term base in the region.
Vetrotech is currently undertaking its largest project in the region to-date, at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Vetrotech’s Contraflam EI 60, 90 & 120 products have been specified throughout the brand new 700,000m2 Midland Terminal construction, which is due for completion in December 2017.
Once complete, the terminal will include a number of Vetrotech’s fire-resistant glass solutions providing resistance against conducted, converted and radiant-heat which will help safeguard the welfare of passengers.
The Abu Dhabi Airport project is part of a series of briefs that Vetrotech has undertaken in the Middle East, with several other prominent airports and public buildings across Bahrain, Doha, Dubai, Kuwait and Riyadh also completed in recent months.
