In addition, Gulfex has unveiled a new software for the optimization of estimated time of completion and structural calculation. The new solution will help in reducing production and estimation time by 50 per cent as well as preparing structural and u-value calculations. Lastly, it will also showcase solutions that meet and even exceed performance criteria for fire safety and acoustics in building envelopes. While noise reduction is an increasing priority for buildings, fire safety solutions ensure a safer built environment.

Modar Al Mekdad, CEO of the Metals Industries and GM of Gulf Extrusions said: “The Big 5 is one of the Middle East’s biggest and most established exhibitions for building and construction and a perfect platform for new launches. Gulfex has introduced a new powder coating range – safaa, a software solution, and fire safety and acoustic solutions. These products are specially designed for the Middle East’s harsh environment characterized by high temperatures and humidity and have been receiving tremendous response from trade visitors. Moreover, we will provide live demos so that interested clients can have a better understanding of the products, enabling them to make quick decision.”

In addition, Gulfex conducted a Continuing Professional Development (CPD)-certified workshop on ‘Fire Safety in Facades’. It also organized a live demonstration of the best practices in façade installation – accessory and firefighting equipment during its participation at the show.
