International testing organisation Exova Warringtonfire and certification body Exova BM TRADA will be providing expert guidance and live demonstrations at FIREX International 2017 in London, 20-22 June.

Q-Mark and Certifire approved contractor London Fire Solutions will be demonstrating best practice passive fire protection product installation on Exova’s stand C100.

The first session is set to start at 12 noon and will see the installation of a double doorset into a full-scale mock-up of a typical corridor, filmed and relayed live to a seated audience on the stand, with commentary from Senior Product Assessor Simon Bailey.

London Fire Solutions will complete the installation of the remaining passive fire protection measures at 2pm, including service pipes and protective collars alongside cables, cable trays and a fire bat.

The audience will get the opportunity to ask any questions at the sessions, in addition to the chance to examine the installation work close-up, and test their knowledge of fire doors by examining two seemingly identical specimens to determine which has been installed correctly and which has not.

A number of displays including a burnt fire door, three types of burnt fire resistant glazing, burnt structural steel and a burnt service pipe and collar will also feature at the stand.

The installation demonstrations will be one of the key highlights of the ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone.
