COMBISAFE provides a lesson in safety at Dubai mixed use development

COMBISAFE is helping to deliver exceptional standards of health and safety at a new development in Dubai with the specification of a fall safety system for The Onyx, a US$500 million mixed used development with stunning views over the Arabian Gulf.   

The COMBISAFE engineering team worked with main contractor Al Shafar General Contracting LLC (ASGC) at the earliest stage of the construction process which led to the specification of 107 Safety Net Fans to cover the entire circumference of each of three towers to protect public and workers below from any materials, tools or debris which may fall from the building.

An additional 13 units of the Safety Net Fan Maxi were also specified for use on the slab off the main podium building as it offered an increased level of protection and containment against falling debris.

“We have specified the Combisafe Safety Net Fan on previous projects and once again we found this versatile and highly adaptable safety solution was able to meet our strict safety requirements,” said Elia Makar of Al Shafar General Contracting LLC.
