Al Khail Gate residents first to benefit from new and improved cooking-gas facilities
Dubai-UAE: 07 June, 2017 - Dubai Properties, a leading Dubai-based real estate master developer and asset manager known for renowned destinations across the emirate, has partnered with Emirates Gas (EMGAS) to provide residents in its communities access to safer cooking-gas by deploying state-of-the-art LPG composite cylinders. Al Khail Gate will be the first community to benefit from this initiative, which is expected to enhance safety and reduce risks.
The new lightweight composite cylinders are considerably safer than the traditional metal cylinders and comprise helically-woven fibres, combined with resin, making them uniquely secure. Labelled as ‘explosion-proof', the cylinders can withstand a pressure burst two times over regular metal cylinders.
Arif Mubarak, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Properties' asset management arm, said: “Dubai Properties is firmly committed to the safety and security of residents and tenants across its portfolio of communities. The upgrade will include an LPG leak detection system connected to a new fire alarm technology and create a resilient infrastructure that prevents mishaps. An LPG piping network will further enhance the pioneering system that is automated, environmentally friendly and cost-effective.”
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Chief Executive Officer, ENOC Group, said: “We place the utmost importance on environment, health and safety standards, especially when it comes to our customers. As a government owned entity, we strive to apply international best practices to ensure the safety of individuals, communities and the environment. Our products and services are tailored to the requirements of the various industries that propel Dubai's economic growth. We are pleased with our recent collaboration with Dubai Properties and the Dubai Civil Defence that will ensure the safety of our communities.”
EMGAS as the main supplier of the LPG composite cylinders, is also responsible for all the related installation across Dubai Properties' communities.
Dubai Properties is implementing the system in support of Dubai Civil Defence's ‘Home Safety Package' launched in October last year.
