Cleveland, Ohio-headquartered and New York Stock Exchange-listed Fortune 500 paint and coating manufacturing firm Sherwin-Williams has been contracted to deliver fire protection technology for Dubai’s Museum of the Future, located on the city's busy Sheikh Zayed Road close to the Emirates Towers.

According to a company statement, Sherwin-Williams will use Phoenix 370-120H water-based intumescent coating for the museum’s structure, which has a fire rating of 120 minutes.

One of the major challenges for fire protection experts from Sherwin-Williams was the museum’s design, which is a joint-free assembly of 890 stainless steel- and fibreglass-fused panels that were fabricated using methods typically seen in the aviation industry.

Malaysia’s Eversendai fabricated the structure of Museum of the Future.

Sherwin-Williams' market director for Firetex in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India (EMEAI), and Asia Pacific, Roger Williams described Museum of the Future as a “game-changing [project] for specifiers, architects, developers, and applicators". 

“Our comprehensive range of products and the substantial advances we have made in intumescent coating technology are delivering significant protection and operational benefits and options to our customers,” added Williams.

Sherwin-Williams acquired Dubai- and Hong Kong- based Phoenix Fire Protection Group this March, which the firm said expanded its reach across the EMEAI and Asia Pacific regions.
