At the panel discussion, stakeholders congregated to disseminate information, gather knowledge, exchange ideas, debate innovative perspectives, solutions and products for fire safety and security. This measure sought to empower decision makers with first- hand information, as well as to spread the word about newer possibilities in building fire- safe residential and commercial complexes. Aludecor also showcased their latest range of Firewall
A2, a fire- retardant ACP, becoming the only Indian manufacturer to indigenously manufacture the same.
Dr. Prabhat S. Rahangdale said, “The Fire Department, over the last few years, is working towards improving the infrastructure, capacity building, superior communication, mitigation and importantly active citizen interference.
Fire Safety norms for buildings are our highest priority. Because of negligence or lack of knowledge people tend to lose their valuable lives. Buildings and market places needs to be fire proof and it is a good platform like this to communicate with the stakeholders and make the citizens aware and educate them about right building materials with fire proof properties. Such initiatives are always welcome by the State Fire department.”
Ashok Kumar Bhaiya, Chairman and Managing Director, Aludecor, said, “In India, awareness about fire safety and security needs to grow exponentially to safeguard the high stakes in terms of human lives, assets, investments and resources. We at Aludecor have been striving to contribute in the best way possible for us towards fire safety in buildings, be it through developing the best fire- safe product or by sensitising the industry on the importance of embracing norms that would make our country fire safe.”
