Shelforce Manager to speak on fire door compliance at London Build

Business Manager at leading Birmingham window and door manufacturer Shelforce, Howard Trotter, will join a stellar panel at London Build on Wednesday, November 16 to discuss fire door compliance.

The Golden Thread for Fire Doors seminar will focus on the key stages within the life cycle of a fire doorset and what is required to ensure compliance.

For the last two years, Shelforce has manufactured and supplied its fully compliant Fireshel 30-minure fire, smoke, and security resistant door to Local Authorities and Howard will discuss the manufacture of fire doorsets with 3rd Party accreditation and the importance of compliance from a council and responsible persons perspective.

Howard said: “When it comes to specifying a fire door solution, Local Authorities must understand fire doors and their components, including the testing and certification that must be supplied, and the standards and regulations that must be met.

 “It’s important to raise awareness of the product manufacture, quality, installation, and maintenance of fire doorsets to ensure they perform as intended and save lives, and I’m looking forward to taking part on the panel.”

The seminar, which will be hosted by Winkhaus Strategy Manager Andrew Wilkins, will also put the spotlight on design and testing, Secured by Design and the new PAS24 and part Q updates, and maintenance and the storage of data to maintain the golden thread.

London Build, the UK’s biggest festival of construction, takes place at Olympia London’s Grand Hall from November 16-17 and features 500+ speakers across eight stages and 350+ exhibitors across the two days.
