The recent FIREX International exhibition proved a great success for the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), with the glass industry’s leading trade body being inundated with enquiries on fire resistant glazing.
The GGF had its biggest ever platform at the show, with a 30m² stand that included three full size product exhibits showing the various stages of the fire-resistant glazing process, as well as glass performance before and after the effects of smoke and fire.
It certainly was an attention grabber, as the stand enjoyed a constant stream of visitors from local councils, emergency services, training, health and safety companies, construction companies, media, architects, specifiers and building managers.
Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the Fire Resistant Glazing Group (pictured above), commented: “It was a great show and really raised the profile of the GGF and Fire Resistant Glazing. I was delighted with the full attendance at my seminar on the Importance of Fire Resistant Glazing. I am sure this will lead to many future opportunities for the Federation.”
Steve Bond, Chair of the Fire Resistant Glazing Group (pictured below), added: “I was pleased to see the GGF have a much enhanced presence at this year’s FIREX. The live exhibits showing the effects of fire and smoke captured the imagination of visitors and the GGF video showing fire resistant glazing in action also attracted interest.
“With so many enquiries, it has clearly been a worthwhile show and one I hope the GGF can repeat next year. I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to educate all those responsible for fire safety in buildings, on the correct specification, installation and performance of Fire Resistant Glazing.”
