According to Al Muqarram Group spokesperson, there’s an urgent need for stakeholders in the construction sector to ensure that their buildings and tenants are protected against fires, most of which occur during the summer season.
“The recent spate of fires in the region, if not brought under control, could reverse the gains made in the real estate sector. It is, therefore, crucial that players in the construction and real estate sectors embrace technologies that will protect buildings against fires,” said Safdar Badami, managing director, Al Muqarram Group.
Although there has been a slight reduction in the number of fires in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and especially in the emirate of Dubai from a high of 486 incidents in 2016 to 420 in 2017, stringent fire safety measures are still needed to protect lives and property.
As the region, led by the UAE, continues to undertake mega construction projects, focus has now shifted towards the hundreds of high-rise buildings being constructed using a variety of flammable materials generating concern in relation to fire safety.
“It is encouraging to see that the relevant authorities are enforcing tighter regulations and guidelines to protect buildings and the people living and working in them. On our part, we are also investing in research and development to produce highly-effective products that help to insulate buildings against fire hazard,” added Mr. Badami.
