Dubai International Airport, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
Elastoseal Basement Tanking System
The waterproofing for the extension at Dubai International Airport was supplied by SealEco. The deciding factors for choosing the Elastoseal membrane were the longevity of the membrane, the speed of installation and the safety that the Thermobond system components provide. A veritable international hub between East and West, Dubai International is the world’s fastest growing airport in terms of passenger traffic, with a growth rate of 19.31% and over 34 million passengers in 2007. The airport’s long-awaited $4.5 bn expansion with Concourse 3, a huge vault-like structure 600 m long and 250 m wide, stays watertight thanks to some 500,000 m² of Elastoseal EPDM membrane.
