Insulation and interior building products distributor CCF recently held an industry lunch and learn event to highlight the importance of fire protection and third-party accredited products and installers.

The event, in conjunction with the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (AFSP), Promat, Rockwool and Tradeline, was the second of its kind to take place. Building professionals benefited from one-on-one time with leading fire protection suppliers, technical guidance and product showcases.

Part of the session reflected on content covered in the Dame Judith Hackitt review, in particular the potential introduction of a “more rigorous and transparent product testing regime”, along with how the review will likely impact the products and materials specified, installed and maintained.

Paul Grundy, CCF’s technical director, said: “We are proud to have held a second event inviting building professionals to consider how third-party accredited products and installations can benefit them and their customers.

“As a responsible supplier, committed to offering quality products, great service and trusted advice, it is important for us to be talking about fire protection and the different compliant and added-value options, such as third-party accreditation.”

Ron Payne, managing director of Complete Wall Solutions, who attended the event, commented: “It is important for my business to stay informed, so I was more than happy to attend CCF’s lunch and learn event.

“It was a good opportunity to hear more about third-party accredited products and systems, and the added reassurance it can give when used in the specification and installation process.”
