TECNALCO – Aluminium Technical Engineering Factory was established in 1981, and has made its name since amongst discerning customers as a supplier of high quality air distribution devices and duct accessories.

Located in the northern emirate of Umm Al Quwain, United Arab Emirates, TECNALCO’s manufacturing facility is one of the largest and oldest in its field.
Comprising of over two hundred employees, and with more than two decades of experience, we are well equipped to handle all manner of customer requests and queries.
Our product offerings include: grilles & registers, linear bar grilles, square diffusers, slot diffusers, round diffusers, perforated diffusers, air louvers, exhaust valves, door grilles, non return dampers, sand trap louvers, jet diffusers, volume control dampers, fire dampers, sound attenuators, plenum boxes and access doors.
The majority of our products are manufactured from aluminum extruded sections, in polyester/ epoxy powder coated surface finish.


Tecnalco ‘Aluminium Technical Engineering Company’ first commenced operations towards the end of 1981.
In those early days the company, a partnership set up by Mr. Ibrahim Saeed Alghas and Mr. Adul Salam Mohammed Al Zoorooni, two enterprising and hardworking young U.A.E locals from the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain set about the task of fabricating doors, windows, kitchen cabinets and fixed partitions etc, to supply the growing demand arising from construction. Tecnalco was one of the first companies in the U.A.E to manufacture these products and though enjoying some success in this segment, the decision was made in 1984 to switch operations to the fabrication of central A/C grilles, diffusers and door grilles etc.

The product list grew along with the company’s expertise to include many new items which were then grouped into the nine chapters of our product catalogue.
The company has continued to grow and flourish with the expanding market of the U.A.E for almost three decades, ever increasing its technical knowhow. Tecnalco’s product range has grown to the now 17 chapters its catalogue makes up, including products such as: volume control dampers, sound attenuators, fire dampers, jet diffusers, air louvers, exhaust valves and perforated diffusers.

In June 1999 the company was bought out fully by Mr. Ibrahim Alghas after Mr. Abdul Salam decided to pursue other business interests. Tecnalco has continued to be successful under the sole leadership of Mr. Ibrahim, reinforcing its name as a market leader in the industry.

In 2008 the decision was made to change the title from company to factory reiterating the fact that we are indeed manufactures and not only traders in the industry. In 2009 Mr. Ibrahim appointed his son Mr. Ahmed Alghas, a graduate of Kingston University in the U.K, to take over future development of Tecnalco, who immediately began a systematic updation of processes, removing any outdated systems or practices while building on Tecnalco’s strengths. A website was created along with many other technological improvements that help smooth day to day operations, offering more information, quicker response times and allowing Tecnalco to better meet the needs of its customers.

Today Tecnalco is just one of Mr. Ibrahim Alghas group of successful businesses, each of which is a leader in its respective field and including: Arabian Extrusions Factory, Al Falaj Water, A1 Plast, and Emirates Plastics.


TECNALCO is headed by Managing Director, Chairman and Owner – Mr. Ibrahim Al Ghas.

Also the owner of Arabian Extrusions Factory, Al Falaj Pure drinking water, Emirates Plastics and A1 PLAST, Mr. Ibrahim has devoted a great amount of time and effort to achieving success in the market, and his keen business skills have helped to give his companies a competitive edge. Always ready to invest the resources needed to develop and improve the company; his strong participation reinforces confidence in our brand and product.

Sound Attenuators

To combat noise problems

The sound attenuators are designed by TECNALCO to combat noise problems. All fans/impellers used in air conditioning system produce noise, relevant to the amount of work they do to move the air, much of the noise is generated by the fluctuations of radiated pressure and these pressure waves are distributed approximately equally in all directions, causing “duct born noise “and break out”.


Non Return Dampers

self closing dampers, black pressure dampers, gravity dampers, pressure relief dampers
