We supplied approximately 30,000m2 of Profoil 861 to Arabian Profiles for Phase 1 of the Dubai Tram project. Completed on 1st November 2014, the first phase is from Al Sufouh to the Marina.
Profoil 861 is a heavyweight reinforced vapour barrier with an aluminium foil core to give a high water vapour resistance. The woven extruded polypropylene multifilament scrim reinforcement gives good resistance to tears and punctures. The aluminium foil is protected on both faces by polyethylene making it ideal for corrosive situations, such as chlorine in swimming pools.
The Dubai Tram (previously the Al Sufouh Tram) system was designed to form an integral part of the Dubai transport network, linking the Dubai Metro and the Palm Monorail.
For any building to have an energy efficient, healthy, moisture free building envelope there is a clear need to manage the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture movement (HAMM) throughout the building’s life cycle from design, construction, completion and use.
