As a manufacturer in New Zealand, we thrive off supporting, educating and collaborating with other New Zealand businesses.
On Thursday 13th December, iPASSIVE held a presentation for NZI insurance underwriters and insurance industry stakeholders on all things passive fire protection.
Together, we looked at the challenges the industry faces, specifically the lack of knowledge from asset owners, outdated compliance issues regarding fire ratings and the need for fire safety in early building designs along Queen Street; using the unfortunate Grenfell Tower incident in North Kensington, West London, as a horrific and real example.
We discussed our fire safety concerns and the Auckland Council’s position statement, as mentioned in our previous blog, and examined the ratings of each of our iPASSIVE products while explaining the appropriate building seals and benefits of being a manufacturer in New Zealand.
We also spoke about our new website and mobile app for download on Android and IOS, an excellent and informative tool for assessors and installers to use.
At iPASSIVE we’re big on providing product selection advice, passive fire education and training so we’re always open to meeting with your team to discuss how you can benefit from passive fire protection. Contact us here to book now.
