Trading begins for Jewers at Dubai World Trade Centre

Original doors in 2015

Dubai World Trade Centre has played a pivotal role in the growth of Dubai’s business tourism and trade since its inauguration in 1979. 

With over 1.3 million square feet of covered exhibition and events space, comprising 21 halls and over 40 meeting rooms across 3 floors, the Trade Centre hosts over 500 events annually.

In 2015 Jewers supplied and installed 4 sets of our 40 metre wide multi-leaf Osprey Sliding/Folding doors to act as flexible access corridors linking Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) with the new Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre (DICEC) - see top image.

It was due to the success of this project that Jewers’ Middle East were directly approached by DWTC to remove two existing sliding doors on Sheikh Rashid Hall and replace with Kingfisher straight sliding doors.

Ben Pritchard, Regional Sales Manager of our Dubai office said:
"The loading bays are one of the busiest areas of Sheikh Rashid Hall where they experience heavy vehicle traffic for both exhibition build-up and removal.
"Our client chose the Kingfisher straight sliding door as it fully met the demanding specification needed for this vital area".
Each door is in a single top-hung leaf, hanging from Jewers own pendant hangar and top track system, surface mounted anti-trip torpedo guides are used to stabilise the door at ground level and remove the need for bottom tracks.

Each door has 4 double glazed vision panels and a wicket door to allow authorised personnel access into the building when the main doors are closed. Weighing in at 900 kgs each, they are 4.5 metres x 4.5 metres in size and are finished in Sargasso Blue Plastisol on the outside and White Plastisol inside.

A digital drive motor with built in inverter is fitted to each door allowing it to operate smoothly for up to 40 cycles per hour.

The Kingfisher door is one of a trio of insulated sliding and folding door products available from the Phoenix range of doors from Jewers Doors.

All doors can be customised to suit a client’s individual needs with options such as solid insulated panels, partial or full-glazing, wicket doors, full height pass doors, electric or manual operation and a multitude of finish options.
