“Time to talk about fire protection” say manufacturers

Published:  02 November, 2018

An industry lunch was held recently to highlight the importance of fire protection and third-party accredited products and installers.

Insulation and interior building products distributor CCF hosted the event in conjunction with the Association for Specialist Fire Protection, Promat, Rockwool and Tradeline. Building professionals received one-on-one time with fire protection suppliers, as well as technical guidance and product showcases.

Part of the session reflected on Dame Judith Hackett’s review, which included recommendations for the construction industry following the Grenfell Tower fire, in particular the potential introduction of a “more rigorous and transparent product testing regime”, that she suggested. Delegates also discussed how the review will likely impact the products and materials specified, installed and maintained.

Paul Grundy, Technical Director at CCF, said: “We are proud to have held a second event inviting building professionals to consider how third party accredited products and installations can benefit them and their customers.

As a responsible supplier, committed to offering quality products, great service and trusted advice, it is important for us to be talking about fire protection and the different compliant and added-value options, such as third party accreditation.”

Ron Payne, Managing Director of Complete Wall Solutions, said: “It is important for my business to stay informed, so I was more than happy to attend CCF’s lunch and learn event.

“It was a good opportunity to hear more about third party accredited products and systems, and the added reassurance it can give when used in the specification and installation process."
