The GGF Fire Resistant Glazing Group (FRGG) is raising its profile with an increased presence at the FIREX show that’s taking place on 19th to 21st June 2018 at London Excel on stand A475.
At FIREX the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) will be highlighting to the Construction Industry the importance of Fire Resistant Glazing and why building contractors, designers, architects and specifiers should ensure they are using trusted qualified companies such as, GGF Members to carry out the supply and installation of fire resistant glazing. The GGF technical team will be on hand to answer technical questions regarding the performance of fire resistant glazing systems.
Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer and Secretary of the FRGG commented, “Over the last twelve months, the subject of fire-resistance within construction has been very much in the spotlight. The Guide to Best Practice in the Specification and Use of Fire-Resistant Glazed Systems offers assistance as to how glass can play its part in a building’s fire strategy; and we are pleased that the updated guide will be published in June with a launch planned at FIREX.”
At the show, GGF will have a video presentation which shows how fire resistant glazing installed correctly can provide valuable time in event of a fire.
The GGF will also deliver a presentation on “Fire-rated Glazing – Getting It Right, Getting it Wrong” which discusses the importance of how glass plays its part in the fire strategy of a building.
The GGF will also be giving away a free hard copy of the newly launched Fire Resistant Glazing Guide (RRP £150) to the first 20 visitors to the GGF stand A475 at the show.
With the recent tragic events of Grenfell Tower, fire safety is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and is a priority in the national agenda – and the focus on the construction industry. The FRGG remains committed to providing the best industry guidance to protect people from fire and the effects of fire. Specifically this relates to the safety of building occupants, while allowing unhindered access for rescue crews. Fire-resistant glazing physically separates people and valuable objects from flames, smoke, heat and other products of combustion, which is critical for safe egress.
FIREX runs from 19 to 21 June at London’s Excel.
