FORMAX gears up for growth in multiaxials


FORMAX worked with Premier Composite Technologies to create the hands for the clock of the Dokaae Tower in Mecca,
the world's largest clock tower.The clock hands are 22 m and 17 m in length and are made out of carbon prepreg.They weigh 6 tonnes each.
28 April 2011

Diverse applications

Wessely points out the diverse range of applications the company has been involved in. These range from developing quadaxial fabrics for use in Lamborghini's new carbon composite supercar, to supplying materials for the Dokaae Tower in Mecca – the work's largest clock tower.

On the Dokaae Tower project FORMAX worked with Premier Composite Technologies (PCT) of Dubai to produce the clock hands using carbon prepreg. The clock hands had to be be hollow to allow access to the 2000 LEDS embedded into their surface. They were therefore designed as sandwich structures, featuring an outer layer of prepregged glass cloth, a structural laminate of unidirectional (UD) carbon prepreg and secondary reinforcements using FORMAX carbon biaxial fabrics.

FORMAX materials will also be used in the tower's hilal (cresent moon) structure which will measure 23 m. Working with PCT and Gurit UK, FORMAX developed a custom hybrid quadraxial fabric for this, which uses a blend of carbon and glass fibres.

Premier Composite Technologies celebrates 5th anniversary


PCT is currently constructing the 23 m composite hilal (crescent moon),
which will be placed on the top of the Dokaae Tower in Mecca – the largest clock tower in the world.
29 April 2011

Dubai based composite structures supplier Premier Composite Technologies (PCT) is celebrating five years in business.

PCT was founded in 2006 by a team of three people, including managing director Hannes Waimer, to serve the architectural and marine markets in the Middle East.

Today, the company has grown to over 670 people. It works a number of European architects, including SL Rasch, Snohetta and Foster + Partners, and has evolved into the building of production race boats, including the FARR 400.

PCT is currently involving in the construction of the Dokaae Tower in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

This the largest clock tower in the world and PCT has supplied the upper 370 m of the 601 m tower, a construction that involves over 60 000 m2 of composite cladding. This includes the four glass fibre epoxy clock faces, two of which measure 43 m in diameter, as well as the 23 m carbon clock hands and the 23 m self-supporting carbon hilal.

O Makkawi, you should know better than to post those pictures in original size, you know most of us poor people does not have an HD display like you do :P :P
