The FCIA International Building Code Firestop & Effective Compartmentation 'DIIM' Symposium Dubai provides education and practical knowledge related to the Firestop and Effective Compartmentation industry.

Firestop and Effective Compartmentation systems that are properly installed to the tested and listed system specs are universal critical elements of fire- and life-safety.

Total protection begins with good Design, continues with proper Installation, is verified with thorough Inspection and then is completed with regular Maintenance and Management of installed systems. Having and implementing a thorough knowledge of the ‘DIIM’ of Firestopping and Effective Compartmentation, as well as of Fire Walls, Fire- and Smoke-Rated Barriers and Smoke Partitions, provide greater reliability of installed Firestop Systems for improved Fire- and Life-Safety in buildings.

At the FCIA International Building Code Firestop & Effective Compartmentation ‘DIIM’ Symposium Dubai, honored delegates will attend a varied array of educational sessions focused on each element of the ‘DIIM’ of Firestopping - Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance/Management - as well as a session focused on code and standards updates.

If you Install, Design, Specify, Inspect, Maintain or Manage buildings with installed Firestop and Effective Compartmentation systems, this event provides the expert education required to stay current with the developing industry trends and best practices.



Symposium Registration deadline is 29 September!
