We are delighted to have Alan Brinson, Executive Director of the European Fire Sprinkler Network writing the IFP Comment – titled ‘Sprinklers are a core fire safety measure’. Alan looks at how despite building activity in Europe being below its 2008 peak, sprinkler markets are booming.
This issue is packed full of in-depth and interesting editorial, from the latest industry news and product announcements as well as technical fire safety feature articles, this issue will not disappoint.
James McNay provides us with ‘The essential guide to flame retardant timber’; Michael Daub and Torsten Weiz look at ‘Improvement of preventive fire protection in a tank farm’ and Ran Meyrav explores ‘Communicating the danger to those with hearing loss’.
With further twelve fantastic articles, the ASFP Comment, NFPA Vision, as well as three profiles, two case studies, five pages of news and an Exhibitor Showcase for the International Water Mist Conference in Berlin, you can look forward to a magazine designed to teach, inform and entertain.
We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to bringing you the next issue of IFP in December which will feature a preview of Intersec taking place in Dubai from January 19th – 21st 2020.
