Exova to demonstrate live passive fire protection product installation at FIREX

Posted on 24/04/2017

Leading international testing organisation Exova Warringtonfire, together with certification body Exova BM TRADA, will be providing expert guidance and a series of live demonstrations at FIREX International 2017 in London, 20-22 June.
 
Each day, Q-Mark and Certifire approved contractor London Fire Solutions will demonstrate best practice passive fire protection product installation on Exova’s 80 square metre stand C100.
 
The first session which commences at 12 noon, will involve the installation of a double doorset into a full-scale mock-up of a typical corridor. The installation will be filmed and relayed live to a seated audience on the stand, with expert commentary provided by Senior Product Assessor Simon Bailey.
 
At 2pm, London Fire Solutions will complete the installation of the remaining passive fire protection measures, including service pipes and protective collars alongside cables, cable trays and a fire bat. Again, the installation will be filmed, with Ross Newman, Principal Technical Officer at Exova BM TRADA providing detailed expert commentary to the audience.
 
Both sessions will include a question and answer session with the audience and an opportunity to examine the installation work close-up. 
 
In addition to the full-scale simulated cross-corridor set-up, the stand will feature a number of displays including a burnt fire door, three types of burnt fire resistant glazing, burnt structural steel and a burnt service pipe and collar.
 
Visitors to the stand will also be able to test their knowledge of fire doors by examining two seemingly identical specimens to determine which has been installed correctly and which has not.
 
The installation demonstrations will be one of the key highlights of the ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone.
