BM TRADA will be offering visitors to FIREX International the opportunity to attend a free half-day seminar, Fire Doors Explained – Understanding the essentials.
The event, which takes place from 9.15am–12.45pm in ExCel London’s South Gallery on Tuesday 16 June, will provide delegates with an excellent overview of fire door design, manufacture, testing, installation and certification.
The short seminars will cover a range of topics, including: Anatomy of fire resistant doorsets; Testing and Assessment; Reality of site installation and maintenance; and third party certification.
Aimed at anyone with a responsibility for the manufacture, installation, maintenance or inspection of fire doors, the seminar will provide all those attending with an in-depth understanding of the structure and each of the components that make up a fire-resisting doorset, fire test requirements and the role of third party certification.
Delegates will also get an overview on correct installation and how to identify issues which will determine whether or not a doorset will achieve the required performance.
Following the seminar, delegates will be invited to join a guided tour of BM TRADA’s Passive Fire Protection Demonstration Zone on stand C165 which will feature a full-size corridor and suspended ceiling simulation. The interactive exhibit will demonstrate best practice specification and installation of passive fire protection measures including fire doors, service pipes, cables, light switches and downlighters.
The tour will then take visitors to full size display models of a charred fire door and a glazing system, as well as burnt pipes and cables, all of which will clearly demonstrate how passive fire protection measures work to prevent the spread of fire. A series of short time-lapse films of a fire resistance test on a pair of doors, a glazing system and pipes and cables, will clearly demonstrate the importance of good installation and the difference in performance of correctly and incorrectly specified and installed door, glass and fire stopping components.
A further live seminar will be held in the Expertise & Guidance Theatre during the afternoon, when BM TRADA will be broadcasting a live 30 minute fire door test from its fire testing facility in High Wycombe.
Entry to the seminar is free to Firex International visitors who book in advance. To reserve your place visit www.bmtrada.com/en-gb/training/passive-fire-protection-training/fire-doors-explained-understanding-the-essentials
