Following the Euralarm General Assembly on October 29, 2020, an industry webinar has been organised that will run from 16:00 - 16:50 (CET). We are excited to invite you to this online Event. The webinar is intended to look at the key regulations and standards that affect gaseous extinguishing systems in Europe and to distinguish between approved gaseous fire extinguishing systems and approved components, which is the subject of the recent Euralarm document titled, Guidance on Gaseous Systems : approved systems versus approved components.
Gaseous fire extinguishing systems are a very effective way to protect critical hazards and high value assets, when it is important to have no collateral damage caused by the extinguishant or residues. But how should the efficiency and reliability of a gaseous fire extinguishing system be assessed? And what is the role and the influence of the various standards, regulations and approvals that are used to validate the efficacy of the systems. This Event will make you aware of the major differences between voluntary and mandatory standards quality marks and will help you to make a decisions based on clear and balanced information.
Attendees should register for the event in advance here. Prior to the event a separate link to the webinar will be sent to you. In case one or more of your colleagues would be interested in joining us, please do not hesitate to forward them the invitation.
