Domopan hosts key industry symposium
Doha, March 23, 2013
Domopan Qatar, one of Qatar’s leading comprehensive engineering companies, hosted a workshop at La Cigale last week to acquaint guests with their fiber gypsum panels, DomoGypsum.
Scores of designers, architects, engineers, and developers attended the one-day symposium to learn the technical details of the panels.
“A result of our collaboration with international partners is DomoGypsum, a state-of-the art modular panel composed of a measured mixture of gypsum and fibrous materials,” remarked FoudHamdan, Domopan’s CEO in his opening remarks to the participants.
“Although conceptualized and designed with international help, we like to consider DomoGypsum a break-through in material technology for Qatar itself. It’s the first product of its kind produced right here in the country, and it would be hard pressed to find any material with the same characteristics manufactured anywhere in the region,” he added.
With last year’s rewarding from the Loss Prevention Ceritification Board (LPCB) – a global benchmark for industrial standards – the panels are authorized to be sold in European regional markets.
In addition, DomoGypsum is also approved by Qatar’s General Administration of Civil Defense at the Ministry of Interior and the Qatar Civil Defense Department’s approval for two-hour fire resistivity – an important element considering last year’s high-profile fires.
Attention to detail and meeting international standards have proven DomoGypsum to be very popular, as Hamdan explained.
“DomoGypsum has been a success since the day the first panel it first left our factory in 2008,” stated Hamdan.
“We are proud that iconic Qatari landmarks, just as the Museum of Modern Arab Art, the RasGas headquarters, Souk Waqif Hotel, and the PortoArabia complex at the Pearl, all have DomoGypsum paneling installed in them. I believe that this alone is testament to the durability, effectiveness, and convenience of DomoGypsum,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
