Trinity Qatar, the contracting arm of Dubai based engineering conglomerate Trinity Holdings, showcased its range of products and services related to building safety and maintenance on the sideline of Safety Design in Buildings conference held on Monday, Feb. 18, at Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel, in Qatar.
Speaking at the conference, Mr. Allan Comello, an Executive Director at Trinity, emphasized the importance of adherence to building standards and design criteria with particular reference to safe paths of egress. He highlighted the importance of having stairwells protected with certified fire resistant doors and well designed stair pressurization, exit lighting and egress illumination installed in buildings. "HVAC system for the buildings should be adequately fitted with smoke detectors to shut off fresh air intakes thus obstructing the flow of oxygen to the affected area. The penetrations for all services within stairwells and fire compartments should be adequately protected with fire-stop systems," Mr. Allan added.
