BM TRADA will be showcasing its timber expertise to the masses at this year’s Timber Expo with a new ‘live zone’ featuring a range of demonstrations designed to showcase its timber and fire credentials.
From its stand at F30 – the footprint of which has been increased to almost 100m2 for 2014 to cater for the extensive programme of activities – BM TRADA will host a wide range of practical demonstrations – all delivered by experts in their field.
Kyle Morris, BM TRADA Senior Technical Officer – windows and doors, will demonstrate elements of the PAS 24 test on an enhanced security timber window while Vic Kearley, Principal Technical Officer – timber, will be using different types of material to demonstrate slip resistance and carry out a soft body impact test to show the difference in performance between different timber floor types. Meanwhile, Lewis Taylor, Timber Frame Consultant – timber, will conduct a timber frame demonstration looking at the different design and build aspects of a typical timber frame construction.
In addition to the demonstrations, BM TRADA’s Technical Experts will cover some of the hottest topics in the timber industry as part of its seminar programme at this year’s Timber Expo.
Popular timber subjects including timber species verification and the EUTR, timber in historic buildings – where Andrew Pitman, Technical Business Development Manager, timber, will talk about the importance and challenges involved in assessing the condition and strength of historic timber – and CE marking versus third party certification
Each demonstration/seminar will last around 20 minutes, with additional time set aside afterwards for questions. There is no need to book – delegates just turn up five minutes before the start of each session (although attendance to the seminars is on a first come/first served basis).
On top of this, BM TRADA will be hosting surgery sessions, where visitors will be given the chance to talk/ask any questions they might have relating to one of the many timber-related subjects available.
