Dubai – MENA Herald: With quality at the forefront, Unigulf Group a prominent player in the HVAC industry in the Middle East continues its efforts in providing its customers with best-in-class products. As a leading distributor for Arabian Fiberglass Insulation Company (AFICO), a part of Zamil Industrial Company in Saudi Arabia, Unigulf announces the successful Dubai Civil Defense (DCD) approval for AFICO’s complete range of fiberglass products. They are now in accordance to the strict fire safety standards set by the DCD.
Dubai regulatory authorities have been making strong efforts to raise the safety standards to protect lives and property. New regulations ensure that there is a greater weightage for superior quality products being used in building constructions that will help in curtailing mishaps.
The DCD certification process includes a range of quality control tests and inspections of the manufacturing units as well as consistent testing of products to ensure that they are in line with the set expectations of the authorities. The process also includes reputed external third party laboratories conducting detailed technical product tests. Their own inspection teams also assess factory safety procedures and conduct tests to evaluate the knowledge and skills of the technicians involved in the manufacturing process.
“Unigulf worked closely with AFICO towards acquiring the DCD certificate for its entire range of insulation and acoustic products. At a time when the DCD is tightening the fire safety guidelines in the Emirate, the approval reinforces the need to conform with rules and regulations. It also highlights the high priority set by Unigulf to ensure that we partner with like-minded organizations that are focused on consistently delivering superior products,” said Prakash Chablani, Managing Director, Unigulf Group.

“The Dubai Civil Defence certification for our comprehensive range of products is one of our greatest achievements in 2016. This would not be possible without the assistance from Unigulf who ensured that we completed the approval process. It helps us further the opportunities we envisage in the building insulation market, especially with a run up to the major projects that are underway working towards EXPO 2020 where we expect the market to be at its peak from 2017 – 2019,” said Sreekumar V.P., Sales Manager GCC for Arabian Fiberglass Insulation Company.
The DCD certification received by AFICO now enables them be available to a wider range of contractors involved in applications such as pre-fabrication, ceiling, partitions, raised floorings, etc.
