Greene Fire organises Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training seminars for ‘Active Smoke Barriers’, ‘Fire Curtain Barrier assemblies: Non-invasive fire protection’, ‘BS 8524 Part 1 and 2: The new British Standard for active fire curtain barriers’, and ‘Smoke Curtains in Smoke Extract Systems in Atria’.

Active Smoke Barriers

Participants in this comprehensive, educational seminar will receive an informative account of smoke curtain barriers, their applications and the integral role they play when installed within the built environment in conjunction with Smoke, Heat, Exhaust and Ventilation (SHEVS) systems. The CPD seminar is designed to provide regulators and the design community and other professional bodies with greater understanding of the governing standards and regulatory compliance.

Fire Curtain Barrier assemblies: Non-invasive fire protection

This comprehensive, educational seminar is designed to provide architects, building controllers and fire professionals with greater understanding of fire curtain barriers and the governing standards that regulate their use. From compartmentation to protecting a means of escape, this educational seminar will illustrate when and where fire curtain barriers can be specified within the built environment. A review of a fire barrier’s operation, installation and continuous servicing requirements will be followed by a Q&A session with delegates.

BS 8524 Part 1 and Part 2: The new British Standard for active fire curtain barriers

This educational seminar introduces the recently published BS 8524-1 and -2 for active fire curtain barriers, equipping professionals with a clear and comprehensive understanding of the changes from BSI PAS 121 and the newer, more robust test requirements and applications for use. Written specifically for architects, building control bodies and fire professionals, this seminar will explain the requirements and significance of providing compartmentation and protecting means of escape.

Smoke Curtains in Smoke Extract Systems in Atria

This educational presentation will describe the principle of the automatic smoke containment curtain or blind as a general concept, the physical construction of the product, how it functions, and how it is incorporated into the smoke extract system and the building. Automatic smoke blinds are normally always used as an adjunct to a smoke extract or smoke control system to function more effectively. Being a separate discipline, smoke extract will not be covered in any detail in this CPD.
