The challenge

There were many critical points that had to be taken care of. The approvals was the starting point. Being an ARAMCO project, the standards were very high and it required great technical expertise to not only chose the right product but also professional application. Additonal attributes were one of the requirements as per specs like absortion, highly smoke, gas and water resistant and with international approvals. Hilti provided valuable services to El Seif in the project. Hilti’s engineering department in Jeddah realized technical studies, designs and mock-up’s for the firestop material and its application. Afterwards Hilti personnel conducted several user trainings and presentations in the job site.
