FM Blue wins Fire Excellence award

 

FM Blue wins award for best Passive Fire Protection installation at Fire Excellence Awards for Cannon Street Station, London

FM Blue fire barriers provide an effective means of containing or compartmentalising a fire hazard, and can be widely incorporated into walls, doors, and ceilings to protect life, cable trunking and other sensitive supply lines for example gas or fuel, increasing fire resistance and asset protection. FM Blue has been specified on major projects for clients such as BAA, Glaxo Smith Kline, Amec, EDF, British Energy, British Telecom and London Underground.

Canon Street StationAt the Fire Excellence Awards FM Blue won the award for best installation which was completed by Hillmore Fire Protection. FM Blue was used in a fire rated passenger tunnel in London Underground’s re-development of Cannon Street Station. The purpose of the tunnel is to achieve the safe transit of passengers from the street entrance into the main stairs, through the middle of a construction site.

The tunnel therefore had to be structurally sound, suitable for passenger loadings at peak times, relatively lightweight so as to not exceed the structural loading capacity of the existing station flooring, aesthetically pleasing, have additional framing behind the finished surface to take services fixings, and fire rated.
