VdS Conference Structural Fire Protection

4th December 2018

Cologne Exhibition Centre, Congress Centre East

The regulations for building products – both German and European – their interpretation and application are as sophisticated and extensive as they have ever been. The installation and the proof of proper installation means building contractors as well as examiners/inspectors are constantly facing new implementation problems.

The aim of this event is, therefore, to give an overview of the current status and trends in the major regulations and in particular in the selection and installation of building products. Specifically, how to deal with the details and background of essential fire safety requirements and the possibilities in the planning, approval and execution practice will be covered. The focus is on component-specific solutions.

Alongside the presentations, as with any other VdS conference, there is an extensive opportunity to exchange experiences and opinions with experts, manufacturers of construction products and experienced installers.

The conference will be held in German language.
