Rebuilding Trust: Ensuring Fire Safety & Competency Post-Grenfell

06 Oct 2020
Regeneration Hub

Since the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in the summer of 2017, fire safety has become a major industry focus. Service penetrations in fire-separating elements are in part a minor element of a compartment wall or floor, yet in truth they are one of the most important elements when it comes to ensuring the performance of any compartment wall or floor is maintained.

This importance drove the ASFP, BESA, BSRIA, GPDA and FIS to hold a series of industry-facing workshops to understand why issues keep occurring and what barriers have hindered a collaborative and responsible approach to the design, specification and installation of service penetrations in fire-separating elements. This presentation is the result of a collaborative review from stakeholders in the industry, including manufacturers, designers, contractors, and specialist fire companies. Delegates will be provided with a free guide on publication.
