Passive Fire Conference

 

New for 2023, The Fire Safey Event has partnered with ASFP to bring a new conference theatre covering passive fire protection topics and various fire safety measures in the built environment. With themed topics on each day, hear from the experts and get the essential advice from specification, installation, inspection and maintenance.

Themed topics

Golden thread

Day 1 will focus on how to introduce the requirements for the golden thread of information. We will deep dive into the information and management systems you need to put in place for anyone responsible for a building – making sure individuals and organisations can easily access reliable, accurate and up-to-date information.

Passive Fire Protection (PFP)

The vital component of a fire safety strategy,  day 2 will focus on Passive Fire Protection (PFP). Hear from organisations and case studies on how to protect the structure of a building to safeguard people’s lives and limit the financial impact of damage to buildings and their contents.

Competency

Day 3 will identify the knowledge, skills, abilities, and mindset, evaluated through demonstrated behaviours, which directly and positively contribute to the success of installing, manufacturing, distributing and designing.

    Like any other site activity, passive fire protection installations require early planning and client engagement to take place. This ensures projects run smoothly, safely, in a timely manner, and massively assists in achieving compliance.

    Each organisation should have a process in place to ensure all the information needed is collected prior to project kick off, and the client is fully aware of activities that will take place on site.

    A method to record and keep track of all installs carried out on site should be implemented within the process of installing passive fire protection measures. Living in a digital world, the easiest and most cost-effective method is to use computer software and mobile apps to record installs and produce reports. This comes hand in hand with keeping in line with third party accreditations and regulation 38.

    Designers now understand that drylined walls should be specified as a system and not a series of components brought together to be able to demonstrate compliance for a Fire rated wall forming a compartment.

    But what happens when we use these systems in the real world and perforate the wall with doors, pipes, sockets etc., and further how is compliance demonstrated when the wall interfaces with the building and other elements?

    The session will explore the testing landscape and the long-term risks to the designer/specifier/ contractor in not aligning the detail, though the concept of the Fire Wall.

    Joe Cilia is the technical director at the body representing the Finishes and Interior Sector (FIS)
