FIREFLY Spreading the Word on Compliant Compartmentation

Changes to the fire regulations across the UK and the challenge of showing compliance with them, is motivating a growing number of construction professionals to book a place on FIREFLY®’s highly informative CPD seminar.

Entitled “The Design and Understanding of Passive Fire Protection and Compartmentation”, the 60 minute presentation provides an introduction to the behaviour of fire and the distinctions between active and passive protection measures, before moving on to explain the various ways in which fully compliant compartmentation can be achieved to prevent the spread of fire within a building.

Daniel Gordon, the Specification Sales Manager for Scotland and Ireland, comments: “Architects and fire assessors are joining to us to learn more about compartmentation and flexible fire barriers in particular and generally wanting us to update their conceptual knowledge of the subject as standards, compliance requirements and indeed solutions available all continue to evolve. As a result, myself and my colleagues in the technical sales team are delivering the training module – both online and direct to architects in their offices – on a weekly basis.

Our webinars are hugely popular, but I particularly enjoy the in-practice sessions where it can be easier to get under the skin of a topic or question with a smaller group. Either route, the attendees gain the accredited CPD time, but moreover get a real insight into how compartmentation barriers – in combination with elements such as fire doors or intumescent paints – can all combine together. We also stress the quality of the installation and adherence to manufacturer tested details is as important as the products in isolation, which are of course all still tested in accordance with relevant standards at UKAS accredited facilities.”

Amongst the consultancies that Daniel has delivered the module to in recent times is Keppie Design in Glasgow, a practice responsible for creating some of Scotland’s most prestigious projects, including Aberdeen’s iconic Exhibition and Conference Centre, constructed close to the city’s airport.

FIREFLY® manufactures and supplies a range of fully tested fire barriers which are suitable for protecting all types of new-build construction as well as being widely used in retrofit situations.
