FIREX International took place at London’s Excel (June 19-21), bringing professionals today to reflect on where the sector is and where it needs to go to ensure people and properties are safe and secure in the event of a fire.

The GGF exhibited at FIREX to raise the profile of fire resistant glazing and the work the GGF’s Fire Resistant Glazing Group has undertaken to educate, guide and highlight the importance of fire resistant glazed systems to the broader fire safety sector.

GGF presented its online video, “Fire Resistant Glazing – Getting It Right vs. Getting It Wrong”, available on the GGF website.

The video demonstrates the effects of why Fire Resistant Glazing should be used and just as importantly why it should be installed correctly.

Richard Kells, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the Fire Resistant Glazing Group was available on the GGF stand to answer any technical questions regarding the performance of fire resistant glazing systems.

The GGF also promoted the GGF Guide to Best Practice in the Specification and Use of Fire-Resistant Glazed Systems which can be downloaded here.
