We’ve just heard that Dura Composites has been shortlisted in the Building Façade category for this year’s GAIA Awards. We entered our innovative Dura Pegola range earlier this year and we’re absolutely thrilled that we’re in the running for the award.
Although the awards will be presented during The Big 5 Exhibition, in Dubai from 5th to 8th October, award entries were not limited to exhibitors; any product distributed in the MENA region could’ve been entered. The awards were launched in 2008 with the aim of showcasing best practice and recognising sustainable construction equipment and products. The MENA construction industry is placing more and more importance on environmental awareness and builders are tasked with meeting green building standards.
Dura Pergolas are absolutely perfect for this award because they are made from 87% recycled materials and are even available as 100% FSC Certified. They look and feel like timber, are UV stable and their unique composition offers an expected lifespan of 50 years without warping or rotting. We’ll be showcasing Dura Pergolas, along with our other composite decking, flooring and cladding products, on our stand (2A81) at The Big 5 so customers can come and see for themselves.
