A few days ago the highest building in the world was opened, with a spectacular ceremony in Dubai : the Burj Khalifa.
Dallmer's floor drains are installed throughout the building. Burj Khalifa is a building that can only be spoken about in superlatives. At the same time it is a giant space for living and working: 828 m high, 189 floors of which 160 are used for luxury apartments, the Armani Hotel with 320 suites, high specification offices and several ultra chic restaurants. This "vertical village" provides space for 12,000 inhabitants. At its maximum occupancy up to 35000 people can be there at the same time making it a "tower town".
The super-tower was one of Dallmer's biggest individual projects in number of units sold. The company supplied several thousand high-quality stainless steel gratings for floor drains, including over 1300 "Quadra" covers and nearly 3,500 other 'Design' gratings, always in stainless steel. Drainage technology in a building on this scale needed to combine established technology with leading-edge design. Dallmer have been major players in this region for many years, and Burj Khalifa emphasized their ability in bringing products "Made in Germany" to a discerning and highly competitive market.
