FIREX 2017: ASFP Passive Protection Zone to include live installations

FIREX 2017 Exova Warringtonfire and Exova BM TRADA have alighted on the theme achieving best practice passive fire protection for this year s ASFP Passive Protection Zone at FIREX International (20-22 June 2017, Excel London). For the first time ever, passive protection measures will be installed live during the show. Each day at the three-day event Q-Mark and Certifire-approved contractor London Fire Solutions will demonstrate best practice passive fire protection product installation on Exova s 80 square metre stand C100.

The first session, which starts at 12 noon, will involve the installation of a double doorset into a full-scale mock-up of a typical corridor. The installation will be filmed and relayed live to a seated audience on the stand, with expert commentary provided by senior product assessor Simon Bailey. At 2pm, London Fire Solutions will complete the installation of the remaining passive fire protection measures, including service pipes and protective collars alongside cables, cable trays and a fire bat. Again, the installation will be filmed, with Ross Newman, Principal Technical Officer at Exova BM TRADA providing detailed expert commentary to the audience. Both sessions will include a question and answer session with the audience and an opportunity to examine the installation work close-up. In addition to the full-scale simulated cross-corridor set-up, the stand will feature 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. Visitors to the stand will also be able to test their knowledge of fire doors by examining two seemingly identical specimens to determine which has been installed correctly and which has not. The installation demonstrations will be one of the key highlights of the ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone.

Professor Brian Cox to headline IFSEC and FIREX 2017

Professor Brian Cox OBE, Dame Kelly Holmes and Simon Weston CBE have been confirmed as keynote speakers for IFSEC and FIREX International 2017. Securing the services of Professor Cox is quite a coup for the P&M (Protection & Management) Series, which co-locates IFSEC, FIREX, the Safety & Health Show, Field Service Management Expo, Facilities Show and Professional Clothing Show. The eminent physicist, presenter of the BBC s The Wonders Of series and prolific scientific writer topped a recent poll of preferred keynote speakers among the P&M audience by a wide margin.

As well as presenting numerous TV and radio programmes (like Radio 4 s Infinite Monkey Cage) Cox is professor of particle physics at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester. He is also the author of bestsellers Why Does E=mc ? and The Quantum Universe, while 950 scientific publications bear his name. Challenging any perception that physicists as socially awkward, badly dressed nerds, he was, somewhat incongruously, also a keyboard player for bands D:Ream and Dare in the 1990s and has become something of a pin-up. IFSEC International takes place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. Get your free badge now. Dame Kelly Holmes won Gold for Great Britain (No team GB in those days) in the 800 metres and 1500 metres at the 2004 Athens Olympics. She still holds the British records for the 600, 800 and 1000 metre distances. Holmes, who for several years combined athletics with being a Sergeant Class 1 PTI in the army, has admitted to suffering from depression.

In 2008, Holmes founded the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, to support and develop athletes beyond sport, who then deliver on every single one of their transformational mentoring programmes for young people facing disadvantage. Simon Weston CBE is a British army veteran who rose to prominence after suffering severe burn injuries in 1982 during the Falklands War. Weston, who survived an attack on the warship on which he was stationed with 46% burns, has undergone countless operations in the years since. Weston was awarded an OBE in 1992 in recognition of charity work, notably in founding The Weston Spirit , a Liverpool-based young people s charity. He was also listed as one of the top 100 Welsh Heroes in 2004 and in 2014 was voted top of the UK`s Heroes Index. IFSEC International takes place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL.
