Dubai, UAE, 19 August 2018: The new manufacturing plant of KAD Air Conditioning and Delta Duct Air Conditioning, both part of the Bin Dasmal Group, is now operational, Javed Tejani, General Manager, KAD Air Conditioning, said. The plant, spanning 100,000 square feet and located in Dubai Industrial Park, is equipped with new machinery and will boost the manufacturing capacity of both companies, he added. KAD Air Conditioning and Delta Duct are both currently supplying to Oman and Kuwait and have a prominent presence in Saudi Arabia, a market that is picking up and offering new opportunities, Tejani said.
Providing an update on projects in the pipeline, Tejani spoke of plans to launch a semi-rigid duct and duct connector by the end of the year. “The semi-rigid flexible duct will be manufactured with heavy gauge aluminum foil, with quality second to none in the MENA market,” he said. “It will comply with leakage class 0, which will be the highest as per the UL 181 classification.”
Tejani added that the companies aim to provide the best quality material at the least possible price in the MENA region. “For example, we supply our fire-rated duct, coated or non-coated, with minimum thickness of steel at 1.20 mm,” he said, “compared to other manufacturers, offering products at the same price but at 0.80 mm [steel thickness].” Tejani also stressed that KAD Air Conditioning and Delta Duct products are tested and certified by various international laboratories and certifying bodies, such as UL, Applus and BSRIA. “In line with our efforts to promote locally manufactured products with the highest international standard,” Tejani said, “we continuously test and certify our fire-rated ducts, fire dampers, motorised fire/smoke dampers and flexible ducts.”
