EXHIBITOR PRESS RELEASE - VEDA FRANCE

At The Big 5 2018, GV2 VEDA France will be presenting its VEDAFEU range, dedicated to passive fire protection, which has been validated by the UAE Civil Defense

United Arab Emirates- 2018: Rapid fire spread in buildings is something that, even today, continues to be a problem, with consequences that are often disastrous leading in some cases to heavy loss of life. There is no lack of recent examples:- The Zen Tower in Dubai in May 2018, Grenfell Tower in London in June 2017, Torch Tower in Dubai in 2017 and 2016, The Address Downtown also in Dubai in December 2016... The only way to protect people and property in the face of this type of events is to systematically install appropriate, certified and patented fire barrier solutions during construction.

Among the products for which GV2 VEDA FRANCE is famous, the VEDAFEU range, designed to offer passive fire protection, consists of ropes, mattresses, blankets, fillerboards and firestop foam.  This patented range is validated by local authorities (UAE Civil Defense, Qatar Civil Defense, Kuwait Fire Department...) and has obtained international certifications (EN, UL, BS) issued by world-renowned independent official laboratories (Efectis, CSTB, TÜV Singapore, Exova)

VEDAFEU products are fire-rated up to 4 hours and can be used for joint gaps up to 840 mm. In order to meet the most challenging technical requirements, these firestop solutions are validated in multiple configurations: - with and without movement; for horizontal and vertical applications, for head-of-wall configurations, for facade panels.
