On the first day of FIREX International BM TRADA will conduct a live fire door test from their fire testing facility in High Wycombe that will be streamed directly to the FIREX Expertise & Guidance Theatre, this powerful demonstration will show two identical doors subjected to a prolonged period of fire, one of the doors will have been correctly specified and installed, while the other will demonstrate many of the common mistakes made.
Additionally, the BM TRADA stand will host a passive fire protection demonstration zone featuring a full-size corridor and suspended ceiling simulation.
Gerry Dunphy, Event Director- FIREX International states: “This year at FIREX International we wanted to make sure there was a real mixture of thought-leadership, case-studies and debate from the experts within the industry sitting alongside the practical hands-on experiences that we know our audience love. There will be plenty for visitors to get involved with this year and we look forward to hosting the entire fire safety industry this June at London ExCeL.”
