Veda France to unveil firestop systems at Big 5

DUBAI, November 22, 2017

Veda France (GV2), a leading designer, manufacturer and seller of a comprehensive range of firestop systems, will be back this year at The Big 5 expo in Dubai for a second time.

The move is aimed at boosting its presence in the UAE, Asia, Africa and beyond.

The top European company also manufactures joints for the construction industry: expansion joints, control joints, joint covers, firestop systems and stair nosings.

"Our solutions are suitable for all types of buildings (shopping malls, hospitals, schools, industrial buildings and airports) for both standard and seismic joints," said a company spokesman.

"As a specialist manufacturer of building joints, our savoir-faire is widely recognized by all the professionals: architects, engineering firms, general contractors and sub-contractors" he stated.

"We are committed to developing reliable innovative products, which has enabled us to become a world leader in firestop systems for horizontal and vertical expansion joints, heads of walls, curtain walls and facade panels for applications in seismic zones (or not)," he added.

The French group's key firestop solutions include:

Vedafeu C: They are the best available firestop solution for joint gaps up to 120 mm and have a firestop rating of four hours.

Vedafeu M mattresses: These are ideal for joint gaps up to 450 mm. They have a firestop rating of two hours and have been developed to resist seismic movements.

Vedafeu N blankets: These are the ideal solution for very large joint gaps up to 840 mm. They have a firestop rating of four hours.

Lineafeu filler board: It is a true all-in-one product: formwork, fire barrier and thermal/acoustic insulation. They are suitable for joint gaps up to 100 mm and have a firestop rating of 4 hours.

Vedafeu PU foam: These are the simplest and quickest solutions for passive fire protection and has a firestop rating of 4 hours for joint gaps up to 40 mm.

Veda France (GV2) said its range of passive fire protection products (ropes, mattresses, blankets, filler boards and foam) were internationally recognised: (EN) European Norms, (UL) Underwriters Laboratories US, (BS) British Standard.

These international certifications are issued by world-renowned official independent laboratories (Efectis, CSTB, TÜV Singapore, Exova, etc.), said the spokesman.

"Our presence in the Middle East region has grown considerably thanks to the certification of our products and systems by the local authorities (UAE Civil Defence, Qatar Civil Defence, Kuwait Fire Department, etc.) and our participation in the 2016 Big 5 Dubai exhibition," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
