Rockwool sponsors Tall Building Conference

Rockwool has been announced as headline sponsor of this year’s International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference, taking place on 18–20 June 2019 at Excel, London alongside the FIREX International Exhibition.

This will be the sixth Tall Building Fire Safety Conference and the aim of the event is to consider how procedures and equipment used for tall building fire safety and firefighting should evolve.

“We are delighted to be the headline sponsor of the Tall Building Fire Safety Conference alongside this year’s FIREX event,” comments Tim Vincent, Head of Technical at Rockwool. “Fire safety in high-rise and high-risk buildings remains a critically important issue, and we look forward to discussing what more needs to be done and hearing from experts on best practice in ensuring public safety.”

Tim Vincent will be taking to the stage on Tuesday 18th June at 2pm to present a keynote discussion.

Welcoming Rockwool’s support for the event, Conference director Russ Timpson stated: “We are thrilled that Rockwool has agreed to sponsor this important event. The conference brings together leading speakers from across the world to discuss key issues that impact fire safety in high rise buildings. Arranged across three days we will consider new technology and best practice in fire engineering, fire safety management and firefighting procedures.

“Rockwool’s support will enable us to further develop the programme and bring together the highest calibre speakers. It also allows us to offer a significant discount to serving firefighters, enabling them to attend to learn about the latest advances in firefighting operations.”

Rockwool is also exhibiting at FIREX and will be bringing an HVAC focus to its stand.  Three new rigs will demonstrate stone wool’s non-combustible nature in different applications, highlighting the importance of non-combustibility for fire-stopping in pipes, ducts and ventilation systems as well as the building envelope.
