Sharpfibre Win Prestigious Award


Friday, May 17, 2013

Sharpfibre are delighted to have been awarded a much coveted award this week at the 2013 FIREX International event.  Despite some stiff competition, our work at 20 Fenchurch Street, London saw Sharpfibre awarded the ASP Passive Fire Protection Installation Project of the Year.  

In the face of several challenges thrown up by the uniquely shaped ‘Walkie Talkie’ building, we were able to install our passive fire protection systems on time, without impacting on other areas of the build, through the use of our Cementitious Fire Spray.  See here for more in-depth details on the challenges that 20 Fenchurch Street posed and the techniques used to overcome them.  

The award was presented by Leicester and England rugby legend, Austin Healey and Judge Brian Sims, who said:

    “The standard of entrants this year was exceptionally high and which made our jobs     as judges even more difficult. We would like to congratulate all the winners for their     outstanding innovations this year.”

As always, the FIREX International event was a resounding success, with some fantastic fire protection and prevention products on show.  It was a great chance to take a closer look at some of the last year’s innovations and catch-up with the leading organisations in the fire protection industry.  

Sharpfibre are committed to delivering the most effective passive fire protection systems possible and are honoured that our hard work and ability to deliver challenging projects has been recognised this year.  We look forwards to the 2014 FIREX International event and are already working our hardest to ensure that we are stood on the winner’s podium again next year.
