Dubai Properties has partnered with Emirates Gas (EMGAS) to provide residents in its communities access to safer cooking-gas by deploying customised LPG composite cylinders.

EMGAS, as the main supplier of theses LPG composite cylinders, will also responsible for all the related installation across Dubai Properties’ communities.  

Dubai Properties is implementing the system in support of Dubai Civil Defence’s ‘Home Safety Package’ launched in October 2016. Al Khail Gate will be the first community to benefit from this initiative which is expected to enhance safety and reduce risks.

The new lightweight composite cylinders are considerably safer than the traditional metal cylinders and comprise helically-woven fibres, combined with resin, making them especially secure. Labelled as ‘explosion-proof’, the cylinders can withstand a pressure burst two times the intensity over regular metal cylinders.

“The upgrade will include an LPG leak detection system connected to a new fire alarm technology and create an infrastructure that prevents mishaps. The LPG piping network installed is automated, environmentally friendly and cost-effective,” said Arif Mubarak, CEO, Dubai Properties—Asset Management.

“As part of our commitment to environment, health and safety standards, we are pleased to collaborate with Dubai Properties and the Dubai Civil Defence to ensure the safety of our communities,” remarked Saif Humaid Al Falasi, CEO, ENOC Group.
