ASC Products Help Construct the World's Tallest Building

ASC helps impart quality and trust to record breaking Burj Khalifa

Hardhat icon The Challenge

For the construction of the 160-story Burj Khalifa, the highest quality components were an absolute necessity. Rising more than 2,700 feet (828 meters) above Dubai’s desert, the Burj Khalifa is a wonder of modern architecture and engineering. Its soaring tower houses more than 1,000 residences, hundreds of hotel rooms, dozens of offices and countless luxury amenities in a superstructure uniquely designed to be both efficient and robust. The tower features a spiraling “Y” design that helps reduce wind forces, while a buttressed core provides torsional resistance. The result is a tower that is extremely stiff laterally and torsionally, with an efficient gravity load resisting system. Every detail, every product utilized by ETA / Voltas / Hitachi (the mechanical contractor joint venture for the project) had to meet rigid international standards of quality - especially the fire protection system - to bring a such a complex structure to life.

ASC distributor Araij Trading is a long-time supplier to ETA and Voltas, both highly regarded mechanical contractors in Europe and the Middle East. So when discussions turned to the construction of the Burj Khalifa, the Sharjah, UAE, agent knew it could meet the project’s needs with ASC products. For starters, several of our products are 100% American-made, a requirement for the tower’s builders. And Araij knew that our complete line of Gruvlok® grooved fittings, our pipe hangers and fittings, and our struts and valves offered the latest technology and most current fire protection ratings available. ASC's performance and manufacturing experience would easily meet the high quality standards established for super-tall skyscrapers like the Burj Khalifa.

Products used in the Burj Khalifa project include:
