Tackling UK Balcony Fires

We are hosting a Free event to tackle UK balcony fires. Join us at The Gherkin, Monday 3rd December 2018.

The theme for the event is reducing fire risk on balconies on high rise residential buildings. The event will start with an industry leadership roundtable panel discussing key direction for the future. We will also be launching a range of Class A1 and A2 fire rated decking products.

Balcony Fires CPD – 12:00-12:30pm

Our fire presentation looks at current case studies of the balcony fires that have happened this year, explores common causes and how these can be designed out. It also gives clarity on the current fire regulations and Sapphire’s active product development. These solutions are above what is currently required but will give advice on what regulations we feel balconies will likely need to meet in the future.

Balcony fires are continuing to happen and with the potential of a combustible cladding ban (which could include balconies), we have begun developing a range Class A1, A2 & B rated decking and soffits. Find out how to minimise the risk of balcony fires and what your options are for the future.

Balcony Design CPD – 13:00-14:00pm

With the absence of a balcony specific standard, yet a host of different organizations stipulating a range of requirements, balcony design has often been a minefield. We have extensively explored the thousands of pages of regulations, and add our findings from expansive testing to bring to you a clear understandable presentation in which we explore the requirements that need to be met as well as innovative solutions.

Our CPD presentation includes videos of real life processes, 2D and 3D technical diagrams, tables and extensive professional photos in order to allow attendees to easily digest the wealth of balcony design expertise and understand how they can be applied on their relevant projects.

We aim to explore, educate and inspire balcony design so that we can make a difference to all attendees.
