Mr. Emil Blum, Product Manager for fischer Cast-In Channel Systems delivered a detailed presentation on how in the near future, the Cast-in solution will be the leading fixing method for new constructions. fischer Cast-in Channel systems refer to Cold formed & Hot rolled assortments, which act like pre-installed anchor, ensuring better load capabilities. The anchors in the fischer Cast-in Channel Systems ranges from round anchors to heavy duty I-shaped anchor. Cast-in Channel System diminishes the requirement for drilling, reducing the damage to structures providing flexibility of installation and ensuring a secure installation to withstand massive wind loads.
Mr. Constantin Wiegert, Head of Business Unit – Façade and Firestop Systems spoke about how the fischer Passive Firestop will help to reduce the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases and greatly increase life safety of occupants and protection of property. Passive fire prevention is an integral component, which is designed and built into the fabric of the structure. The risk of fire can be minimized by dividing the building into a series of compartments/cells bounded by fire rated walls and floors. To maintain the firestopping integrity of a compartment/cell, any gaps, openings, voids or annular gaps within the fire rated walls or floors must be sealed with fischer approved or certified system to prevent the passage of fire, smoke and toxic gases.
Fischer anchors are the industry benchmark, and the best performing anchors in the field of structural fixings. The performance of these anchors are supported by the numerous approvals and evaluations like ETA, ICC etc. Anchor design support to our customers and site training for installers and advising on the right anchor is what makes us a preferred brand in the industry.
