With the Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island, the emirate erected an architectural masterpiece for this purpose, with its charisma reaching beyond continental borders. fischer fixing systems were used for MEP applications (Seismic and Thermal expansion/contraction supports).

In order to safely attach power lines and pipes for plumbing and HVAC facilities, the clients opted for fischer fixings. The fischer FZE (fischer Fixings Middle East) sales and technical team were in constant contact with the client’s engineers and purchasers to provide advice and deliveries. Numerous extraction tests and training sessions were carried out. The fischer application technicians also implemented earthquake simulations and stress analyses. To a large extent, the DSI-HLSpeacon engineers required tests on deformation behaviour and seismic tests on the mounts within a very short space of time. The fischer team succeeded in carrying out all tasks in approximately four months.
