RES were recently given expert product training in the Quelfire range of fire stopping products by Fire Containment Specialist Malcolm Williams from Quelfire. The aim of the training is to give installation experts the guidance and know-how on typical applications for fire stopping products.
Malcolm Williams, Fire Containment Specialist, Quelfire
Quelfire is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of Specialist Firestopping Products for buildings and is a well-trusted brand that’s renowned for its long-standing commitment to high-quality, certified products, including fire containment systems for pipe, duct and electrical service penetrations.
The RES passive team were provided with an in-depth presentation and demonstration covering the rigorous testing that takes place on the Quelfire products, industry legislation, why passive fire protection is so critical, how the products work and detailed installation guidance.
Fire stopping prevents the spread of fire (heat, flames, fumes) and increases the opportunity for safe egress from a building.
It is therefore essential that any Fire Stopping product is correctly installed as per the manufacturers guidance.
The Quelfire Fire Stopping System
Quelfire provide a Fire Stopping System comprising a range of high quality individual products that are tested as a complete system. Their products are tested to current BS and BS EN Standards and are CE Marked as per the Under The Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
Following on from the training, RES will continue to work closely with Quelfire on all our Fire Stopping projects.
