Great Mosque of Algiers

Djamaa el Djazaïr, also known as the Great Mosque of Algiers, is home to the world’s tallest minaret (265m high) and is the third largest mosque in the world after the Great Mosque in Mecca and Al-Masjid an-Nabawi in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

The mosque is located on a site covering 400,000 m² and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Construction of the mosque began in August 2012 and was completed in April 2019. The design was carried out by German architects KSP Juergen Engel Architekten and engineers Krebs und Kiefer International

The challenge

The proximity of the building to the sea required the provision of fire rated steel doors and burglar resistant swing doors with a sea resistant paint finish. All doors must be installed in accordance with the factory’s specifications

Key figures

More than 300 doors

The Heinen solution

Heinen’s pivot-mounted two-way doors have a 60-minute fire rating and the same durability as the rest of the Heinen range. In addition, they come with a 15-year warranty. The company SAFET managed the logistics to the painting company and to the site and our partner CPI Technologies provided installation assistance to the general contractor.
