FM Ireland

On the 5 & 6 March 2019, Facilities Management Ireland returns to the RDS in Dublin.

FM Ireland incorporates Health & Safety Ireland and Fire Safety Ireland and is your opportunity to see and hear the latest in New Ideas, New Technologies, Best Practice, Products, Services, Suppliers and Solutions that can help deliver safe and secure working environments that are cost effective and which add value to an organisation.

As well as needing to be up to date with the latest relevant legislation (whether that be related to Health & Safety, Cleaning, Fire Safety, Working at Height, etc…) a modern Facility Manager with their team also have to address issues including Staff Well Being and creating an effective Work Space, which improves the well being of staff, this can have a direct impact on illness and staff retention.

As well as addressing all these issues the FM Ireland Conference will also look at how new technologies will impact the role of the Facilities Manager and the delivery of services. Whether that be drones to clean buildings and windows, autonomous robots designed to cut grass or clean floors, smart buildings and IOT delivering information on how the workspace interacts with employees and occupants.

Supported by the leading national and international trade associations visitors will have access to a multi-steamed conference programme which will focus on Facilities Management, The workspace and Employee well being, Health & Safety, Fire Safety, Security, Energy, Cleaning and much more.

The FM Ireland exhibition is the largest gathering of suppliers and service providers in the country. This is your opportunity to see, touch, and get hands-on with the latest in new products, technologies, supplier and service providers who can assist you and your team.

Kemwell Fire awarded ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certification

Kemwell Fire awarded ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certification

We are now ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certified by NQA, a leading ISO certification organisation.

By achieving this we are able to demonstrate to customers and suppliers that the quality management and environmental systems we have in place meet the specific requirements set out by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Each year an external audit will be carried out by a third party to ensure these systems are maintained and any non-conformance are noted for correction and continual improvement.

Our decision to become ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certified is a long-term and proactive one that not only anticipates the demands of our customers but also demonstrates a commitment to providing quality products on time and to always exceed our customers’ expectations on service to all current and future customers.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the most updated standard of its kind and focuses on quality management systems and performance. It assists companies in developing a management system that aligns quality with their wider business strategy. There is a focus on risk-based thinking and accountability in all organisational processes that help improve communications, efficiency, and implementation of continuous improvement.

ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) and the most widely used EMS in the world, with over 14,000 organisations certified in the UK and over 250,000 ISO 14001 certificates issued globally. This helps to control companies environmental aspects, reduce impacts and ensure legal compliance.

“We are excited to earn certification to ISO 9001:2015 and feel it provides additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction,” said Graham Buckley, Finance Director of Kemwell Fire.

“The time and commitment we have dedicated to achieving certification demonstrate our desire to always perform at the highest levels of quality and efficiency. It’s essential to delivering high quality and customer-focused fire protection product solutions to our customers. And the award of ISO 14000 is in synergy with the benefits of many of our products which are designed to protect and reduce impact to the environment in the event of a fire. It is vital that our operations reflect and do not negatively affect the environment; as well as comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements; and continually improve.”

“On both certifications, we worked for many months alongside Diane Rainsford of SQEA to ensure correct systems were established to not only ensure compliance but allow us to effectively focus on quality as a natural part of our daily activities. Her support, guidance and hard work were essential during this process.”

Kemwell launches a fire protection system to meet the stringent requirements of the multi-storey commercial and industrial steel framed market

Kemwell launches a fire protection system to meet the stringent requirements of the multi-storey commercial and industrial steel framed market

Kemwell Fire International is delighted to announce the launch of a fire protection board system and range of spray systems to meet the stringent requirements of the multi-storey commercial and industrial steel framed market.

Steel structures are used for building purposes worldwide. One of the main advantages is that they have great resistance per weight unit, which provides them with huge versatility and the possibility of creating complex yet light structures.

However, the thermal conductivity of steel represents a disadvantage. Therefore, in the event of a fire, the gradual increases in temperature plus steel high heat transmission result in a substantial reduction of the structure’s bearing capacity and mechanical resistance. The resistance and elastic limit are modified above 250°C, and above roughly 500°C the drop in resistance is significant enough not to support its design capacity.

Kemwell Tecbor® A and B are magnesium based boards and are A1 classified as per EN standard, designed to achieve fire protection up to El 240. Kemwell Tecbor boards have been developed for a wide range of applications in today’s demanding construction industry.

Kemwell Tecwool® F is a rock wool and cementitious spray specifically engineered for fire protection of all types of building structures and faces. It can be used with Kemwell Tecbor Board systems.
