Technical seminar with ‘Bomba’ Fire & Rescue in KL

KL, Malaysia – Darren Webster, Technical Manager at FIRESAFE Fire Rated Ductwork Ltd took the long-haul flight to visit our new Licenced Partner, Prudential Engineering Sdn Bhd / Prudentaire® and some very special guests. As part of the support trip, a ‘product sharing’ session and technical training seminar was held at the offices of Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat Malaysia (JBPM), the Federal Fire & Rescue Department of Malaysia.

The training covered the principles, applications & regulations governing fire resisting ductwork and was presented to an audience including Asst. Fire Commissioners (PPjB), Senior Fire Superintendents (PgKB I) and key Prudential / Prudentaire® personnel.

Everyone was keen to discuss the benefits of CASWELL FIRESAFE® non-coated fire resisting ductwork and, especially, the importance of the protection afforded by its up to 4-hour structural stability, integrity and insulation performance. One of the Bomba team commented that this was as important to their fire-fighters entering a burning building as it was to the occupants trying to escape.

Sales & Marketing Manager, Mark Elliott commented “This was an important meeting with members of Malaysia’s governmental JBPM Fire Prevention Unit; part of the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government.
It shows the commitment by our International Partner to connect with key influencers and decision-makers in the region.
We were pleased to support them in organising this event.”
