A1S Group Fire Shutters beat off strong global competition.
Building on A1S Group Flameshield Fire Curtains or Flameshield Fire Shutters being installed in the iconic Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (we were ahead of schedule), Wembley Stadium, Twickenham, Manchester’s Etihad, and the London Olympic Stadium, we have now secured the fire and industrial shutter package for the World Cup 2022 semi-final hosting Al Bayt Stadium.
Working alongside longstanding Middle Eastern partners Al Thuraya, A1S Group have secured the package for manufacture of 52 Flameshield Industrial Fire Shutters and 6 Industrial Roller Shutters. Mark Dougill export manager said, “It was our ability to manufacture fully compliant and accredited shutters up to 9.2 metres wide coupled with our project experience with Al Thuraya on the Doha Metro where we manufactured in excess of 100 insulated roller shutters that secured the package. Al Thuraya and the Qatari Aspire organisation were impressed with our heritage of manufacturing and installing in some of the world’s most iconic stadiums.”
Head of Sales and Marketing, Paul Caldwell-Jones said, “The Al Bayt Stadium contract represents another win for the A1S Group in 2019 on the back of contracts with Goldmann Sachs’s London Headquarters, the Royal College of Music and a raft of Manchester developments.”
And after the last semi final world cup disappointment, A1S Group are hoping to go one stage further than England did and get to the 2022 World Cup Final Lusail stadium in Doha with a brilliantly engineered fire shutter package. We’ll keep you posted.
