When paired with fabric, fiberglass can be an ally at the moment of erecting tenso-structures such as shades in public spaces or exterior facade skins.
Composites is lighter thank concrete, so therefore it requires less, if any structure. The product can be built in factory, transported and assembled on site, rather than working in-situ.
Defense systems has reached a higher level of effectiveness due to the increased strength, light weight, low cycle fatigue and corrosion resistance that composites provide.
Composite materials are resistant to a lot of chemical products such as acids, hydroxides, crude oils.
The introduction of composites has definitely changed the face of motor sports in driver safety, comfort and overall performance.
The use of carbon fibre creates a much lighter vessel overall, which maximizes speed and reduces fuel consumption.

“CLIMAGULF was invited to design and execute an Industrial Clean Room conditions for the Production area. The first thing that impressed us was the level of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) awareness of the client and the concern for the working staff which really motivated us to develop a System-based cooling solution. The working conditions onsite and HSE compliance parameters during execution stage were found to be impressive and fairly above the industry standards. It was really a pleasure working with AFI team”…
