A Practical Approach to Fire Safety

Intelliclad, an advanced external fire detection and alarm system, has proven its effectiveness in responding to fires in high-risk buildings. By detecting fires externally, Intelliclad ensures early detection and prompt alerts, preventing further damage and protecting lives. Let’s explore a recent case study highlighting the system’s success and the advantages of external fire detection.

Intelliclad has partnered with renowned fire safety experts and leading industry figures to produce our white paper, titled ‘A Practical Approach to Fire Safety: The benefits of mitigation measures to combat the UK’s Cladding Crisis’.

Featuring contributions from Lord Stephen Greenhalgh, Frances Maria Peacock FCIAT, CBuildE FCABE, IHBC, MIFireE, MSFPE’s and Dorian MCIOB C.Build E MCABE, the report looks at the background of the UK’s Building Safety Crisis and how the mitigation vs remediation debate has unfolded.


Frances Maria Peacock

Frances is a renowned fire safety expert whose technical reports have significantly contributed to the further understanding of façade fires, including a report submitted to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry. She has been involved with Intelliclad as a fire engineering consultant from the outset.

Firstly, her report ‘The Relationship between Building Design Fire Spread: How the Shape, Form & Features of a building can influence the behaviour of fire’ is an essential part of our process for designing our external fire detection system at the quotation stage.

Once we receive an order, Frances will then conduct her own external fire safety assessment using the principles defined in her report and produce an external fire detection statement to conclude her findings.

An external detection proposal will then be signed off as an adequate design in conjunction with her research and the design of the building in question.
