IFSEC and FIREX, Excel London - 20-22 June 2017

IFSEC and FIREX ran side by side on 20-22 June, and were both very successful in terms of the number of visitors and the interest shown in LPCB listed fire and security products and services. The LPCB Attack Zone at IFSEC, in which physical security attach tests were carried out on a range of products by BRE security experts, was a new feature and a highlight of this year's event.

Four companies - all LPCB security clients - supported LPCB’s demonstration zone. CLD Fencing, Morgan Marine, Technocover and Gilgen Doors each provided equipment to be attack tested and helped with the set-up and operations throughout the show. Interviews about their experiences can be seen at:

CLD Fencing - Stewart Plant

Morgan Marine - Dai Jones

Technocover - Jerry Dawson

Gilgen Doors - Peter Massey

The Attack Team of Richard Flint, Tommy Trybus, Phil Mason and Paul Dillon are pictured above. The attack tests were viewed by hundreds of show visitors over the three days of the event. The show organiser, UBM, used a specialist ‘secret shopper’ styled company to evaluate the show and the LPCB Attack Zone came out as the top new area of interest. Plans are already being made for the 2018 event.

BT Readcare at FIREX 2017FIREX

The LPCB Red Book Pavilion at FIREX was set up as a drop in ‘meet and greet’ zone this year and generated considerable interest following the Grenfell Tower Fire which had only just taken place the week before. There is always interest in our various fire detection, suppression and manual fire certifications but this year, passive fire was the main focus, in particular cladding systems.

It was pleasing to see how many LPCB approved companies attended the show, all promoting their LPCB certifications. Pictured here is Graham Orme, BRE Global International Director, presenting Buchi Onwugbonu, MD BT Redcare, with their certificate for their latest LPS 1277 certification for Supervised Premises (fire) and Supervised Premises (security).
