SPV Pledges support for the NFRC Safe2Torch Campaign

Jul 07, 2017

Safe2Torch is an NFRC campaign developed in partnership with contractor and manufacturer members of the NFRC which seeks to significantly reduce the risk of roof fires when using gas torches, either to dry out roofs or when used to install torch-on membranes.

Roof fires caused by gas torches, no matter how minor, pose a serious threat to life, property, the image of the industry and possibly even the long-term future of torch-on as an accepted method of covering a roof.

NFRC believe that by working together, fires of this nature can be prevented and it is for this reason, that we have now launched our Safe2Torch campaign.

The Safe2Torch campaign will promote the positive side of the industry, where safe specifications and safe working practices are second nature. It will give clients assurance that if they engage with a Safe2Torch Contractor and/or Manufacturer, their roof works will have been planned and installed within the requirements of the Safe2Torch guidance.

SPV are pleased to support this worthwhile campaign.
