The Future of Fire Safety in Construction

12:15 - 13:00

In the wake of the tragedy of Grenfell and with the Government bringing forward changes to Building Regulations, what are the implications for architects, specifiers, contractors and installers? The crucial key is a better understanding of the composition, testing protocols and certifications regarding flame retardant and flame-proof products. Equally important is the knowledge to evaluate new products coming to market, and re-evaluate existing products,  to determine suitability for specific projects.

During this session you will learn:

1. Receive a detailed guide to understanding what “FR” means in the context of building membranes
2. Learn how to make more informed decisions when specifying and using FR products in construction
3. Have input into and recommendations for new products to be developed by manufacturers
4. Receive detailed technical briefing handouts on FR standards for building membranes and temporary containment materials
