Dubai Airport

Dubai Airport

Dubai Airport is the main airport in the United Arab Emirates. The famous airport, located a few kilometer north of Dubai city, is home of the famous Emirates airline. Dubai International Airport is the #1 airport in the world in term of international passengers traffic.

Dextra Middle-East, also located in Dubai, has been involved on numerous packages of Dubai Airport construction, especially around the years 2003 to 2005, for the construction of Terminal 3 and associated concourses.

For Dubai Internal Project, Dextra has supplied its popular Bartec coupler solution, #1 rebar coupler solution in the UAE. 1.5 million couplers have been used on Dubai International Airport.


Bartec couplers provided a technical solution to allow the reconnection of second phase reinforcement between columns and beams, and between walls and beams.

Rebar couplers were also used to create temporary openings in the reinforcement, allowing passage of man and equipment.


Bartec couplers were used for the foundation piles. For that application, the couplers became part of a very integrated and automated cage manufacturing process, allowing to connect together large diameter rebar in a minimum time and maximizing cage production output.

As a complement to the Bartec rebar coupler solution, Dextra Sonitec tubes were used to ensure swift installation and reconnection of the sonic tubes all along the cages length. Sonitec tubes are especially easy to install, thanks to their Push-Fit rubber mouth, and easy to set up in the cage thanks to their welded heads. More than 1,800,000 meters of Sonitec tubes have been installed on Dubai International Airport over the years!
