In conversation with Cathy Di Savino, Marketing Manager, Intermetal

Can you give us a brief overview about your company?
We manufacture a large selection of interior doors that are available in a wide range of styles, colors and finishes. Our factory is equipped with the latest technology, allowing us to produce consistent interior doors that are specified due to their performance and durability.

What are the latest products that your company is offering?
We offer Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified Doors that are sourced from forests that are managed responsibly and doors that can assist our clients in achieving credits towards their Green Building Rating Systems as well as Fire-Rated Doors that are available in 60, 90 and 120 minute ratings. With Green Building Ratings and Safety being paramount, we are seeing a rise in FSC Certified and Fire Rated Doors.

What are the latest trends that you have observed in this space?
There is an increase in demand for contemporary door designs manufactured in synthetic and real wood veneers and doors with mouldings. The sliding door is sparking a lot of interest in the market as it is offering more usable space to developers.

What kind of growth have you seen in the demand for your products?
The UAE market looks “upbeat” as mega projects are on the rise and with EXPO 2020 expecting to attract more than 20 million visitors, we are witnessing an increased demand for our doors.
