The sky's the limit

Reaching more than half a kilometre into the sky, the £500m Burj Dubai Tower is not only the World’s tallest tower it is currently the first Dubai development to specify Prysmian FP Plus Flex enhanced fire performance cable in accordance with UK standard requirements of BS5839-1:2002. The cable is being used to power the fire alarm and emergency lighting systems, with Prysmian FP400 cable entrusted to power essential circuits and power supplies to the building as part of the £1.8 million contract. The length of cable being installed is over 1300 times the height of the Tower as it currently stands and is fitted with in excess of 700,000 fire resistant clips and glands. Continuing to break new ground Burj Dubai Tower is the only Gulf based project to specify and use new harmonised core colours.

When it is completed in late 2008, Burj Dubai Tower will be the tallest man-made structure in the world with over 160 floors, however the projected final height of the building is being kept a strict secret until its completion.
