Wrightstyle’s technical director, Lee Coates, claims that the MENA contracts are of “real significance” to the company

Wrightstyle’s contract in Saudi Arabia is for what is considered to be one of the biggest high-level security projects ever specified.

As part of this important contract, the company is to supply around 2,000 square metres of its ballistic systems to Saudi Arabia’s capital of Riyadh.

The systems are being used as external protection for the VIP areas of the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre.

The centre, which opened in 1975, is a 936-bed tertiary care facility, which accommodates almost 7,000 members of staff as well as patients.

It is currently being extended to include a Royal wing, a National Biotechnology Centre and facilities for liver disease and cancer.

Protection for the Middle East

Wrightstyle is also supplying its fire-rated door sets to the Afghan National Security Forces, which houses around 350,000 police, soldiers and air force personnel.

In addition to this, the company has provided its systems to several hotel and infrastructure projects in Qatar and a retail development in the Lebanon.

It has provided its products to projects across the UAE and Egypt and acted as a supplier to the Dubai Metro.

Wrightstyle’s range of integrated steel and glass systems have been tested against car and lorry bomb attacks.

Designed to provide protection against ballistic and blast threats – as well as smoke, fire and toxic gases – the systems are able to provide up to 120 minutes of insulation.
