FIREX 2016 Preview: Installers Can Boost Profits Through Free Workshops, Says Fireco

Fireco will provide workshops to installers of fire doors and other fire-safety equipment and showcase Freedor, their wireless free-swing door closer, at FIREX 2016.

The company will be on stand F190 during the show, which runs from 21-23 June at London ExCel.

Installers can boost profits through the free workshops by finding extra opportunities from existing jobs, say Fireco. They can get hand-on training and learn everything they need to know to install and commission the products in one morning.

Freedor makes the opening of heavy fire doors effortless and allows building occupants to have fire doors open at any angle without contravening fire-safety legislation – because the door will close automatically upon the sound of a fire alarm.

Being wireless Freedor is quick and easy to install, leaving time to carry out more jobs, claims Fireco.

“The demand for Freedor is increasing, it’s a good income source for us,” says Alister Rooney, a satisfied installer at Arma Fire in Bangor, Northern Ireland.

“Fireco are a great company to deal with. I cannot fault the support, guarantees or delivery and they have always given us technical back up when we need it.”

You can watch the Freedor being showcased at last year’s FIREX below.

Register to attend FIREX 2016 and pre-book a meeting with Fireco (stand F190) to take place during the show.
