Facade Fire Mitigation Webinar Series

Recurring event see all

August 10, 2020 @ 3:00 pm August 31, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Façade fires continue to occur in the GCC and globally, leaving engineering experts and legislators on their toes to control complex risk scenarios for the protection of humans and property. As organisations providing industry standards such as ASTM, EN, BS and NFPA are updating their guidelines, it is essential for the building and fire safety industry to stay abreast of best practice implementation and improve collaboration.

The Safety Design in Buildings Campaign invites leading international experts for a public and interactive best practice virtual series, reviewing façade fire mitigation and remediation strategies.

The strategies are presented in support of professional development education in a series of four essential modules. The modules are designed to logically address façade fire mitigation. The first module will address fire resistance, and the second reaction to fire. These modules tackle the two basic principles of fire characterisation and how they affect facades.

The third module puts these together and looks more holistically at façade fire propagation. The last module reviews consultancy processes and inspections.

Participation certificates are extended to attendees following each module.
