Dubai Tram Project

The A. Proctor Group have supplied approximately 30,000 sq m of Profoil 861 to Arabian Profiles for phase 1 of the Dubai Tram project. Due for completion on 1st November 2014, the first phase is from Al Sufouh to the Marina.

Profoil 861 is a heavyweight reinforced vapour control layer with an aluminium foil core to give a high water vapour resistance. The woven extruded polypropylene multifilament scrim reinforcement gives good resistance to tears and punctures.The aluminium foil is protected on both faces by polyethylene for corrosive situations, such as chlorine in swimming pools.

The Dubai Tram (previously the Al Sufouh Tram) system was designed to form an integral part of the Dubai transport network, linking the Dubai Metro and the Palm Monorail.
