AL Nafea Trading Establishment, a Saudi pioneer in office partitions and interior decor, continues to expand its range of products and has added four new lines to its portfolio this year.
The company is currently introducing Buflon vinyl floor-coverings on the market. This follows the launch of contract carpet tiles last month.
"We introduced the Buflon vinyl tiles two years ago in the size 30 by 30 cm," says Khaled Othman, sales manager for the Riyadh-based company, "and now we are adding the vinyl roll-type floor-covering which is antibacterial and highly hygienic. Offered in two thicknesses of 2.7 mm and 3.2 mm, these floor-coverings are suitable for hospitals, day-care centres, schools, gymnasiums, residences and other facilities where safety and durability is important.
"We have also introduced last month Proteus contract carpet tiles in the 50 by 50 cm size. These are made of 100 per cent nylon and are antistatic and colourfast,'' he adds.
Other products added to the company's portfolio are Corail 13 mm-thick toilet partitions, which are totally waterproof and backed by a two-year guarantee, and accessories for glass installations and glass blocks. These products are available to customers ex-stock.
Al Nafea Trading introduced these products in response to increasing demands from its clients for an even larger choice of products, according to Othman.
"Office partitions is a growing line of business in Saudi Arabia," says Othman. "Al Nafea Trading Establishment has recently carried out several major projects, where the requirements of the customers have been met with the best finish at the requested time schedule.
"Our partition systems have been modified to suit various requirements. We have executed projects using our Firewall demountable system, gypsum, MDF (medium-density fibreboard), glass, and steel-covered partitions, X-ray and studio rooms, and many other requirements.
Some of the company's recent projects involving office partitions include the main entrance lobby at Saudi Electric Company's head office, National Instalments' new head office in Riyadh, and the Ministry of Finance (Dewan Al Mathalem - 13 floors).
Other projects include toilet partitions for Saudi German Hospital (Madinah branch), Arafat General Hospital (Makkah), Dajen Restaurants (Riyadh) and the National Guard (Riyadh).
"We are committed to development and to satisfying our customers at all times," he
