A one-stop advice centre has been launched to give building and facilities managers the complete picture of their legal responsibilities in fire protection.

National contractor J & S Seddon Painting has joined forces with Crown Paints – manufacturers of Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings. - to produce a fact-filled DVD and CD Rom dual set to give property professionals the inside track on the subject, in a format designed to fit in with today’s increasingly paperless office.

The DVD outlines details of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and explains the responsibility this has placed on managers of public buildings, such as museums, concert halls and leisure centres. For managers of public facilities in Scotland, the requirements of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 are covered.

This film is supported by a CD-Rom, which pulls together a wealth of information on the subject from a variety of sources, including guides to carrying out fire risk assessments, technical data sheets for the Crown Trade Timonox range, and technical documents.

Seddon has developed a website ‘news centre,’ where managers can order the dual disk set, and view a preview of the DVD online at

Mark Brindley, joint managing director of J & S Seddon Painting, said: “This dual DVD and CD-Rom set pulls together information in an objective and concise format, which keeps building and facilites managers well-briefed of their requirements under law.

“The information has also been CPD Certified by the Construction CPD Certification Service.”

Crown Trade’s Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings offer protection for walls, ceilings and wood-based substrates and their capabilities are demonstrated under independent testing conditions in the DVD.

Linda Allmark, National Specification Manager at Crown Paints, said: “Multiple layers of paint coatings, whether solvent or water based, can make a previously non-combustable surface dangerous by its potential to burn - spreading fire rapidly and turning circulation and communal areas or escape routes into a mass of flames in seconds.

“Timonox buys the time to get people out of a building and the DVD shows just what difference flame retardant paints can make to a building’s fire safety.”
