If you work in, or want to know more about, the Firestopping and Effective Compartmentation industry in Canada, then the FCIA Firestop & Effective Compartmentation 'DIIM' Symposium Canada in Toronto, ON is where you need to be this September 21. Catch sessions like: • Firestopping, Specifications and Existing Buildings with Kaz Kanani (Quadrangle Architects) and Paul Gerber (Archispectural Consulting, Inc.) on specifications and firestopping and the features of fire separations - fire dampers, fire-rated doors, fire-rated glazing - all critical to fire- and life-safety. • Test Standards Application in the Real World with Don Falconer, P.Eng. (Falconer Engineering at Testing) unravels the mystery of fire test standards through case studies in actual buildings. Test standards, engineering judgements and more are covered. • Tall Wood Cross Laminated Timber Structures & Fire Testing with Dr. Joseph Su (National Research Council of Canada) will address the NRC's research on the use of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) for high-rise structures. Dr. Su provides insight into this relatively new technology. • The National Building Code of Canada Development Process - Don't miss this session on proposals to the National Building Code of Canada Code Development Process, resulting in 2020's National Building Code of Canada. • and More!

Interesting article about the similarities between the recent Torch Building fire in Dubai and the Grenfell building fire in the UK. The article cites refurbishments to the Grenfell building as having caused rapid fire spread. Firestopping is not the only solution to make buildings safe, but it's still important. With the proper ‘DIIM’ of Firestopping – Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance/Management – along with other key systems, including the rest of the compartmentation features (fire doors, fire dampers, fire-resistance-rated glazing, fire-resistance-rated walls and floors), fire and smoke detection systems, fire suppression systems and egress paths, FCIA believes that devastating events like these can be minimzed. Insist on FCIA member, FM 4991 Approved or UL Qualified Contractors, IAS AC 291 Accredited inspection agencies and FCIA Manufacturers to get the job done right the first time...and maintained all the time. http://www.theweek.co.uk/87531/dubai-tower-block-fire-draws-grenfell-comparison To find an FCIA Member Contractor, FM 4991 Approved or UL/ULC Qualified Contractor, IAS AC 291 Accredited Inspection Agency or FCIA Manufacturer member near you, visit http://fcia.org/memberlists.php?select=alpha.
Safety-conscious design sees all residents escape Dubai tower block fire, leaving more questions about what went wrong at Grenfell Tower

Maintaining Fire-Resistance-Rated and Smoke-Resistant Assemblies...Yes, It's Critical. With the rash of fires the past year in structures around the world, there has been a call to ‘do something’. The Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA) recommends that all parts of Total Fire Protection be constantly, and continuously, maintained. Sprinkler Systems and Alarm Systems are systems that are routinely maintained, but what about the fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant barriers in buildings? These barriers protect people from fire and smoke spread in buildings. They need maintenance too. Below are 5 suggested steps to take to keep these barriers safe: 5 steps to maintain fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assemblies. 1. Conduct a Visual Survey 2. Inventory the fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assemblies 3. Inventory the features of fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assemblies 4. Repair barriers and the features as needed 5. Inventory the Repairs Firestopping is a big part of keeping the continuity of the fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assembly intact. Breaches, openings and voids are made to allow plumbing, electrical, HVAC, cabling and other service items to serve remote parts of buildings. Those openings are best protected with firestop systems to maintain the fire-resistance. Without protected openings, what these openings have in essence created is a superhighway for fire and smoke to travel through, thereby facilitating the spread of fire and smoke and endangering building occupants. But, firestopping alone is not the solution. Read the complete article at FCIA's 'News You Can Use' blog. http://www.fcia.org/News_You_Can_Use.htm
