Third party certification takes centre stage for Warringtonfire at FIREX
10 May 2022
THIRD PARTY certification will be the central theme for Warringtonfire at FIREX International 2022, with the company running a series of live demonstrations, interactive exhibits, Continuing Professional Development-accredited training sessions and seminars when the show takes place at London’s ExCeL between 17 and 19 May.
Visitors to Warringtonfire’s Stand FI1430 will be able to interact with a series of exhibits on an 84 m2 passive fire protection demonstration zone featuring a full-size corridor and suspended ceiling simulation designed to showcase Best Practice in passive fire protection.
The stand will also feature display models of fire doors, glazing systems, pipes and cables, all of which have been subjected to a fire resistance test, in order to demonstrate effective passive fire protection in action.
In addition to the exhibits, Warringtonfire will also be carrying out live demonstrations on its stand each day. These include how to correctly install a fire door and the fire stopping measures for the many service pipes and cables that run through compartment lines above a suspended ceiling.
As well as installation guidance, Warringtonfire’s technical experts will be on hand to discuss the principles of third party product and personnel certification and the important role played by its own Certifire and BM TRADA Q-Mark certification schemes.
In the Expertise and Guidance Theatre on Tuesday 17 May at 2.00 pm, technical manager Peter Barker will show edited highlights from two 30-minute fire resistance tests. The seminar is going to demonstrate in dramatic fashion the importance of the correct specification and installation of passive fire protection products.
Leigh Hill, division director at Warringtonfire, said: “We are delighted that third party certification is the central theme at FIREX International 2022. We will be reinforcing its importance in the built environment through a series of live demonstrations, seminars, training and interactive exhibits across the three days of the exhibition.”
