The Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA) and the ASTM International UAE Chapter have teamed up with key industry leaders from the International Code Council (ICC), and more for the FCIA-ASTM Virtual Fire-Resistance-Rated and Smoke-Resistant Assemblies & Existing Buildings Event, the first-ever joint event to heighten awareness of fire and life safety in existing buildings.
Building owners invest in proper design, installation, and inspection during new construction. Many routine building operations focus on maintaining the visible active fire protection. But, passive fire protection systems in existing buildings, like fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assembles, are often overlooked when maintenance plans and budgets are developed. These critical life safety systems must also receive the same annual attention as other important safety elements.
This abridged program, a preview for a full-length seminar in 2021 designed for building owners and managers, municipality officials, Civil Defence, architects, specifiers, and designers, focuses on the reviews required by key fire codes for existing building. Through education and a collective commitment to maintaining fire-resistance-rated assemblies in existing buildings, we can improve installed fire and life safety systems in buildings to keep people safe.
