Gyproc on the Palm

Gyproc lightweight systems have been chosen to provide high levels of fire protection for the latest multi-storey residential development on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island.

Set on the Palm’s eastern crescent, Muraba Residences has been designed to make the most of its exclusive location, with every one of its 46 apartments and 4 penthouses carefully aligned to offer amazing seafront views across to the stunning Dubai skyline.


Laid-out over 10-storeys, with basement parking below, the luxury apartments have been designed to offer residents an exceptional living environment, with high standards of fire safety and acoustics throughout.


The Gyproc systems were selected because of their ability to meet the client’s requirement for a demanding 120 minutes’ fire performance to provide maximum protection for the structure and allow exit time for residents in the case of fire.


A combination of Gyproc systems, including GypWall CLASSIC partitions, GypLyner UNIVERSAL wall linings and Gyproc MF ceilings, lined with fire -resistant plasterboard, will be used to meet the fire performance standards throughout the apartments and corridor areas, as well as providing high levels of acoustic performance to maintain a calm and sophisticated internal environment for the residents.


To maintain the same standard in the buildings’ unusual 30-metre high stairwell, contractors are installing linings of Gyproc ShaftWall, a lining system developed specifically to provide a fire-resistant non-loadbearing lining for shafts and risers in multi-storey buildings, and which is constructed from one side only, providing real benefits for concrete frame buildings and other applications where normal access is limited.


Chosen in preference to the more traditional masonry alternatives, the Gyproc systems offer significant savings in installation time, simplified logistics and handling on site, and have Gyproc’s unique SpecSure® backing, warranting not only fire safety but other key areas of performance throughout the building life.
