Innovative construction systems, an increasing use of combustible materials on facades, more proximity between buildings and stricter energy requirements: the transformation of facades due to these changes raises challenges for fire safety experts. To advance knowledge and promote innovation, the CSTB, with its Swedish research counterpart SP, is organizing the 2nd international conference on the fire safety of facades, in 2016.
The 2nd international conference, on the mitigation of risks in connection with fires spreading on facades, is calling on global experts to attend the convention in Lund, Sweden, from May 11 to 13, 2016. The following themes will be addressed: fire safety engineering; regulations; testing methods; facade systems and products and materials.
