Siderise launches Go Beyond campaign in support of Best Practice

SIDERISE INSULATION – the global expert in developing passive fire protection solutions for the building envelope – not only supports an holistic approach to passive fire safety, but also recognises its responsibility to actively champion Best Practice. This is precisely why the company has just launched its Go Beyond campaign.

When it comes to life safety in the built environment, it’s essential to ensure that construction products are tested to standards relevant for their application and, importantly, that they’re installed correctly. This is particularly the case when it comes to the passive fire protection measures used for compartmentation, which must be considered at every stage in the construction journey: from design and specification right through to installation, sign-off and building handover.

The company’s new brand initiative highlights how Siderise seeks to Go Beyond simply manufacturing cavity barriers and firestops. Its high-performance, robustly tested and third party-certified products and systems are underpinned by extensive technical support and services, as standard, in a determined bid to encourage Best Practice specification and installation, in addition to promoting higher building safety standards across the globe.
