FIREMAC RECEIVES QUEEN’S AWARD FOR ENTERPRISE 2018
North Berwick-based Firemac Limited has received a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category, for its Firemac FM Fabric PSA, a high performance self-adhesive glass woven fire resistant fabric that is applied to galvanised steel ductwork to create a fire-resistant ductwork system.
Firemac FM Fabric PSA is the latest innovation from the company which revolutionised the fire-resistant ductwork sector when it first introduced its third-party certificated fabric-based Firemac FM Fabric system to the UK some 15 years ago.
Firemac FM Fabric PSA is sold directly to ductworkers, allowing the fabrication of fire resistant ductwork to be completed under factory controlled conditions, and without the need to rely on third party suppliers.

NEW AICO 3000 SERIES FIRE & CO ALARMS FOR FULL-CIRCLE PROTECTION
Aico, the UK’s market leader in domestic mains powered Fire and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detection, has launched the new 3000 Series. This technologically advanced series detects both Fire and CO and includes, for the first time, a Multi-Sensor Heat & CO Alarm, providing whole property coverage from one Series.
Unique to the 3000 Series, the Ei3028 Multi-Sensor Heat & CO Alarm has been much anticipated as a cost-effective, efficient solution to protecting residents from both Fire and CO. With high heat sources from cooking appliances posing a potential fire hazard and gas-fuelled appliances a potential source of CO, combining detection for both in one is a sensible approach welcomed by the industry.
