VdS Conference Structural Fire Protection

4th December 2019

Cologne Exhibition Centre, Congress Centre East

This year's conference will focus on components for structural fire protection. The selection of products, especially the requirements for installation and proof of correct manufacture, often presents planners, building contractors and inspectors with implementation problems - including legal disputes. The conference shows the current status and latest trends in the selection and installation of building products. It discusses the essential fire protection requirements with regard to planning, approval and implementation practice. The special topic "Control of fire dampers and smoke extraction dampers" spans the spectrum from regulations such as MVV TB to practical application. There is also plenty of opportunity to exchange experiences and opinions with experts, manufacturers and installers.

The conference will be held in German language.
