The tip of Burj Khalifa sweeps about 2 m in a heavy storm, as I can remember.
But this is OK.
Expect a similar value for KT, maybe little more, like 2,5 m.



Concerning the sand itself: I expect that hardened glass should be used for windows in these environments.
On our Dutch/European beaches, standard glass can get ruined (= become matte) due to sand in 1-2 years.

Somebody from SA or UAE can tell more about th the glass qualities used in a sandy environment?
