Advancing Fire Safety a Key Initiative for TGP

TGP participated in the Middle East Fire Safe Forum in Dubai last year. The aim of the summit was to inform, educate and foster a network of fire protection techniques. Topics included types of fire hazards, emergency evacuation systems and workforce safety.

TGP emphasized to show attendees why U.S. test standards matter in the Middle East. One primary reason is more U.S.-based architects are involved in the design and consultation of building codes, particularly for Middle East projects. In addition, since adoption and enforcement of stricter International Building Codes is increasing in Gulf Coast Countries, many specifications for fire-rated systems must now satisfy U.S. test standards. TGP also compared the EN (Euro-Norm) and BSI (British Standard) test standards with U.S. standards. While the standards prove similar in many ways, one notable difference is the U.S. standards also include the hose stream test.
