Following on the heels of the opening of the Elbphilharmonie concert venue in Germany, earlier in the year, for which TROX supplied fire protection and ventilation systems. Matthias Kasprowicz, Regional Managing Director of TROX, spoke extensively on the company’s portfolio of cultural projects in the GCC region. He highlighted how the company has provided air-distribution technology to the Dubai Opera House. The venue, he said, contains 1,900 seats. Under each seat, he added, is a floor diffuser; additionally TROX has supplied jet nozzles and displacement diffusers, he said.

The company, he shared, has also been involved in a number of other venues, such as the Opera Muscat; the National Museum Doha; the Museum of Islamic Art, also in Doha; the Ittihad Museum in Dubai and the Louvre in Abu Dhabi.

Commenting on the peculiarities of working on such developments, given the sensitive nature of concert events, the large crowds such sites are expected to hold and the expectations of the end-users, Kasprowicz said: “For us, the participation in such ultra-modern projects is an honour, a challenge and an incentive, at the same time. It confirms the reputation that TROX carries in the market, as the provider of highest quality.” He added that participating in the design of such buildings also serves as motivation and affirmation in the move to spur the development of new products.
