November 2015 Luncheon and Hilti Firestop Life Safety Seminar

The Chicago SFPE chapter held luncheon seminar on November 9, 2015, at Nia Mediterranean Tapas Restaurant at 803 W. Randolph Street in Chicago. The food was good and a pleasant change from the usual lunch fare. Parking was a little difficult.

Elaine Szot, a field engineer with Hilti, presented, “Hilti Firestop Life Safety Seminar”. This included a refresher on firestop systems, life safety issues, Code provisions and issues, current standards and testing methods, UL nomenclature, selecting the correct firestop system, specific firestop system drawing and engineering judgement, factors effecting firestop performance, inspection issues, and typical applications. Several products were available to look at and touch.
