The ‘Big Smoke’
For our first outing as one “family” of brands Profab Access, Bilco UK and Howe Green will be heading to the ‘Big Smoke’ for London Build. Presented as the leading and largest construction show for London the expo takes place from the 23rd – 24th October at Olympia. With over 200 conference and workshop sessions, 260 exhibitors and in excess of 20,000 pre-registered attendees it looks set to be a very busy couple of days. Our team will be on Stand V20. You can register for a free ticket for the event on the London Build website.
The ‘City of Gold’
After the excitement of London, we will head off to another iconic city – Dubai. Known as the ‘City of Gold’, due to its staggering growth within one generation, Dubai plays host to the Big 5. The largest construction event in the Middle East is taking place at the World Trade Center from 26th – 29th November. The event will play host to over 2,600 exhibitors and an expected 64,000 visitors!
We will be joining some of the biggest names in the global construction industry and are looking forward to speaking to building services professionals from across the globe. If you are making the trip to Dubai for the Big 5 make sure you find your way to Hall 7 Stand: 7C289. Our Managing Director, James Fisher, and Jamie Smith, Senior UK & Overseas Project Manager, have drawn the short straw to man our stand at the Big 5! Register for free tickets.
Fire rated access solutions
We are all really excited to be on the same stand talking about our fire rated access solutions. Preparing for these events has brought it home to everyone just what an amazing proposition we now have to offer architects, specifiers and contractors!
Profab Access is the only access product manufacturer to provide third-party fire certification guarantees across their range of riser doors, steel doors, access panels and loft hatches. Given the attention and emphasis on fire safety in commercial buildings post-Grenfell this fire certification guarantee is a compelling reason to specify Profab’s access solutions.
When it comes to fire safety Bilco UK has a longstanding reputation for supplying accredited and certified Natural Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilators (NSHEVs), also known as smoke vents. When installed in the roof area smoke vents can provide essential ventilation in the event of a fire. Opening by sensors or remote control the smoke vents will exhaust smoke and noxious fumes. By installing smoke vents the risk of smoke inhalation, damage, horizontal fire spread and secondary ignitions is reduced and helps to save lives and protect property.
Howe Green manufacture a range of stainless steel and aluminium floor access covers with optional fire ratings. Depending on the type of cover a 1, 2 or 3-hour fire rating is available. The fire rated floor access covers are ideal for installation in busy public areas such as underground stations and airports where the rapid spread of a fire would have catastrophic consequences.
