CYRIL CISINSKI, managing director, Wacker Chemicals* Middle East and Africa, emphasises the importance of choosing the right façade material to keep a building sustainable. MANY countries in the GCC are actively working to raise the standards of buildings and make them more environment-friendly.

TREMCO Commercial Sealants and Waterproofing has introducedExoAir 111, a high-performance, versatile, impermeable air and vapour barrier membrane that can be used in wall assemblies across a wide variety of climates and temperatures.

IN view of the increased focus on sustainability, aluminium systems provider Reynaers Middle East sees great demand for its energy-efficient solutions such as the CW 65-EF and CW 65-EF-SG for curtain-walling and element façades on high-rise buildings, thanks to their slim profile design and improved thermal insulation.
