Dubai, UAE: A new forecast of the world’s personal protective equipment (PPE) market has identified sector growth potential in the Middle East over the next three years.
Research and consulting group Grand View Research says the moderate sector growth through to 2022 will follow increasing regulation of workplace safety, an uptick in workforce safety awareness and expansion within the region’s oil & gas sector. And the report says the market will take a major leap forward in the type of PPE being adopted with wearable technology making significant inroads.
Workplace safety is no longer confined to filter masks, hard hats and reinforced boots and gloves – it’s now going hi-tech. Such is the spread of the technological advancements in PPE that the sector has been given its own product ranking in the Safety & Health sector of next year’s Intersec show in Dubai. Intersec, which runs at the Dubai World Trade Centre from January 19-21, is the region’s exhibition and conference for security, safety and fire protection.
“The Middle East market for security, safety, and fire protection is on track for double digit growth over the next four years, as regional governments and the private sector look for improved technologies to better protect assets, people, businesses, and borders. PPE will be in the vanguard of improved workforce protection and will be a key factor in the overall segment’s development,” said Andreas Rex, Intersec’s Show Director.

Cristanini Spa, international leader in the production of waterjetting systems, takes a leap forward in the construction of anti-fire equipment with two advanced systems of first attack on fire in open or confined areas.
According to industry statistics, almost 80% of the Fire fighters interventions take place for small fires and the new systems have therefore been designed to ensure rapid, effective and safe interventions using modest quantities of water before the fire becomes uncontrollable.
The speed is obtained by containing dimensions and weights in order to utilize light and manageable road vehicles, while the effectiveness and the modest quantities of water are the result of the use of the water mist technique that turns a jet of water into a very fine mist (1 liter of water at 350bar produces 2 bilions of drops with a drop diameter of 9 ÷ 30 µ and a heat exchange surface of 50m2) able to dilute the O2 of the air by cooling and suffocating the fire as well as creating a thermal barrier on the hot spots.
Furthermore, the use of modest quantities of water is of particular importance, not only because it involves less weight to be transported, but also because it reduces the damages of the intervention which are sometimes greater than those of the fire itself.
Finally, safety is guaranteed by the fact that the Cristanini systems, unlike competitive groups, are perfectly compliant with the Machinery Directive (2006/42/CE All.1).
This equipment is characterized by reduced overall dimensions for installation on small vehicles and it presents particular versatility thanks to the use of a lance-nozzle system with 4 functions: High Pressure, Low Pressure, Water Mist, Water + Foam.
The WJFE-300 system ( Water Jet Fire Estinguisher) instead is a new generation Cutting Extinguisher with simple and intuitive use, which fully complies with Machinery Directive, for the first fire attack in confined spaces where it is needed to access and quell the fire without creating dangerous backfires.
In fact, the use of a special lance, equipped with an abrasive tank, creates in a few seconds on any wall a hole. Through this hole a jet of Water Mist, in the form of very fine mist, is injected by a special nozzle with ruby insert; the Water Mist jet suffocetes the fire, cools the environment and does not damage people or things.
Viz Reflectives are revolutionising the way people are seen by introducing a new element of visibility for Firefighters, phosphorescence. VizLite DT is currently incorporated on firefighters’ uniforms in Turkey, Germany, Spain, UK and Mexico. Phosphorescent technology works by absorbing UV light which is then re emitted as an afterglow.
This innovative technology can be incorporated into a garment design and does not have to rely on any external power supply such as heavy battery pack. When the light levels drop below a certain level, the phosphorescent pigments start to release the stored UV energy making the tape glow and the wearer visible. This was demonstrated by testing carried out at the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue centre in the UK. A video of which can be viewed at the Viz Reflectives Vimeo page https://vimeo.com/236386348
Fully charged by UV light in five minutes with an afterglow lasting up to 8 hours, VizLite DT can be seen at a distance of up to 200 metres. Nick Rowbottom, MD at Viz Reflectives, worked for many years formulating the phosphorescent pigment recipe to achieve fast absorption of UV light coupled together with an extended afterglow.
“It was decided we would develop products specifically with the Fire market in mind” said Nick, “We believe that there are many advantages for firefighters and the rescue services to wear VizLite DT as they face so many demanding situations in varied locations.”
Viz Reflectives have produced VizLite DT FRC, a Proban treated version for domestic wash and VizLite DT FRA, an Aramid version that can be industrially washed up to 30 cycles. Both tapes have had extensive testing and certification along with independent wash testing.
We are now working on a heat applied FR version and, on a brand, new triple trim product that will offer even higher levels of visibility. Viz Reflectives will be exhibiting at Intersec 2020 in Dubai in the British Pavilion where we will be inviting people to Join the Safety Revolution.

The manufacture and storage of flammable and combustible liquids presents an ever present and dangerous risk of spill or fire. With hundreds if not thousands of pure and blended materials classified as flammable or combustible liquids, NFPA 30 Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code groups these liquids into six classification categories based on a materials flashpoint. Additionally, other physical properties of the ignitable liquid must be considered as part of any risk assessment, these include reactivity and heat release rates.
Types and sizes of packaging containers are based on end-use requirements and are produced from a variety of materials ranging from steel, plastic and composites to fiberboard and glass. Storage of these materials typically falls under one of three categories: manufacturing facilities, distribution/warehouse centers and commercial retail outlets. The quantity of material in each of these property settings can vary from millions of gallons down to a few hundred of gallons.
Companies that produce or store flammable and combustible liquids must comply with national, state and local fire codes, in addition to applicable insurance underwriting requirements. Documents that provide guidance on foam-water systems for this risk include: NFPA 11; NFPA 16; NFPA 30 and FM Global Property Loss Prevention Datasheets (7-29, 4-12).
While final general requirements for the protection of manufacturing and storage of ignitable liquids depend on many variables the minimum design criteria for foam-water sprinklers identified in these documents are based on application rate, hazard area, duration time and foam concentrate type.
SOLBERG® balanced pressure proportioning systems meet today’s ever-changing environments associated with protecting the manufacture and storage of ignitable liquids. SOLBERG C6 based ARCTIC™ AFFF, AR-AFFF foam and RE-HEALING™ Fluorine-free foam concentrates are uniquely designed and certified for use in foam-water systems providing maximum fire control, extinguishment, and burn-back resistance.
