Fire Door Safety Day at Arnold Laver

Following on from the success of our previous Fire Door Safety Days, Arnold Laver shall be hosting another event on Thursday 11th May at Durham County Cricket Club.

This is the first time our popular seminar will be held in the North East and we hope it will be just as successful as previously experienced.

With David Oldfield, head of joinery at Arnold Laver and chairman of the BWF-CERTIFIRE Scheme, at the helm the aim of the Fire Safety day set out to inform those responsible for the specification, installation and maintenance of passive fire protection, especially that of fire doors.

The event will see trade professionals gather to learn about the latest developments in specification, certification and inspection methods and procedures. David Oldfield previously stated that he wanted to raise the profile of the scheme, particularly among small building firms and the merchant sector. “Coming from an Arnold Laver background really means that I do understand the problem from a number of different perspectives,” he said. The diversity and number of attendees is clear of the growing need for knowledge surrounding the subject of fire safety within the building trade sector.

Leading industry experts from LorientDormakabaVicaima and The Fire and Rescue Service will deliver a range of compelling and informative seminars detailing the advancement in fire door installation and building regulations. The free CPD accredited event shall cover an array of subjects including doors and frames, door seals, glazing, ironmongery, inspection and certification.

Joinery Director David Oldfield says; “Working alongside some of the leading industry experts, and bringing them together so you can ask questions, and understand more about their products. We also invite you to look at our other suppliers who join us on the day, from MDF Mouldings, Access Panels, Intumescent, Ironmongery and glazing who are all available during the plentiful breaks, and over lunch time.

The CPD event is designed for anyone who has influence over fire doors, whether new build, or refurbishment of older buildings, and we welcome all sectors from House builders, Construction, Schools and Colleges, The Fire Service, Nursing Homes etc.”
