High-rise protection opportunity during Firex

Published:  19 May, 2016

The speakers for the Tall Building Fire Safety Network meeting taking place 22 June during the Firex exhibition in Excel, London have been announced.

High-rise facade fires have featured heavily in the news headlines recently so it is no surprise that facades will take centre stage at the Tall Building Fire Safety Network meeting. Other areas that will be covered during the one-day conference are evacuation strategy and technology; passive fire protection and fire systems.

The event will conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A session.
