Al Arabia For Safety & Security L.L.C, a member of the Juma Al Majid Holding Group is proud to announce the completion of key milestones related to the Dubai CommerCity project awarded back in 1st Quarter 2020, and that the overall delivery for this project is right on schedule.
Al Arabia’s scope involves the supply, testing, commissioning, and maintenance of the all-new EST4 – the premier Integrated Fire Detection, Voice Evacuation & Fire Fighter Telephone System from EDWARDS Systems Technology across Dubai CommerCity’s assets: 6 Buildings in the Business Cluster, 64 Warehouses in the Logistics Cluster, Social Cluster Building, Customs Building, and a Central Utility Centre (CUC). This project was awarded to Al Arabia For Safety & Security L.L.C in a bidding process that involved many Fire and Safety contractors, and it marked the first major installation of this new and advanced technology of the EDWARDS EST4 system in the world outside of the USA. The EDWARDS EST4 features a whole new network architecture which makes fire alarm, mass notification, and building integration easy to implement, quick to service, and secure.
The first two milestones that have already been completed in the first half of year 2021 involved the setting up the new EDWARDS EST4 system in the Customs Building, Social Cluster, Business Building, and several warehouses in the Logistics Cluster.
The development project for Dubai CommerCity is being run by two state-owned enterprises – M/s. DAFZA and M/s. WASL. Al-Arabia will be providing DAFZA with an adequate civil defense certification duly attested by the Dubai Civil Defense along with a 2-year warranty period post-delivery.

We have played a pioneering role in setting up the first of its kind fire alarm system using the new and advanced EDWARDS EST 4 system.

We are happy with the progress of the work and are right on schedule in terms of the defined milestones.”
Sofian Ghanayem, Director of Agencies, Contracting & Services Sector of Juma Al Majid Holding Group also stated, “I have no doubt that this project and the new technology being applied will now set the standards in terms of Fire Detection & Security, and I am extremely pleased and proud that Al Arabia is leading the way in this regard.”
