Euralarm has announced the date of its next Symposium, which will take place in Bucharest, Romania on 4 June 2018. This will be the second time that Romania has hosted this event, showing the country’s commitment to European electronic fire safety and security.
Euralarm member ARTS, the Romanian Association for Security Technique presided over by Liviu Mateescu, will host the event. “Romania is a market that’s expanding,” explained Mateescu. “For next year’s Symposium, we’re aiming to achieve the largest audience for this event to date.”
The Euralarm Symposium has become a ‘must attend’ event for professionals in the fire safety and security sectors. Every year, it brings together all stakeholders in the fire and security markets, including installers, system integrators, manufacturers, end users, facility managers and certification bodies.
Topics for the Euralarm Symposium 2018 will be announced later on this year. In 2017, the event focused on the future of fire and security services across Europe and turning the digital service market into business opportunities.
Abloy UK has created a White Paper that explains the importance of complying with standards and regulations for Escape Doors and recommends solutions to ensure compliance.
All stages of developing any building need to conform to the required standards. From the architect to the installer, all parties involved need to take responsibility for ensuring the correct compliant elements are in place.
There’s an average of 162 building fires in Great Britain every day, with more than 9,100 fatalities or casualties from those fires, which works out at around 25 per day. Fitting the correct system can literally mean
the difference between life and death for the occupants of a building.
In this White Paper, Abloy UK explores why it’s vital that each party – whether an architect, specifier, facilities manager or installer – takes responsibility for ensuring the correct compliant standards are met to guarantee safe egress for the occupants of the building in the event of an emergency.
