Zenova Group PLC (“Zenova”, the “Company” or the “Group”), a provider of innovative fire safety and heat management technology and products, is pleased to announce that its Zenova FP fire-resistant paint has been approved for use by the London Borough of Enfield, with its first utilisation to be in a fourteen-story residential tower block.

Under local authority regulations, Zenova FP must be ‘specified’ for use as a fire protection product before contractors can use it in council owned buildings.

Following a review of Zenova FP’s independent test data, the London Borough of Enfield found that Zenova FP satisfies all necessary building regulation classifications for fire-resistant paint, and its use has been approved by the Council’s fire officer.
Zenova FP becoming specified as a fire-resistant paint by the London Borough of Enfield occurred following its inclusion by Pelling LLP, an award winning multi-disciplinary design, property, and construction consultancy, in the specification for projects it is undertaking with the London Borough. The first project to benefit from Zenova FP will be when fire safety is upgraded in the fourteen storey Dover House residential tower block; one of numerous projects Pelling is managing on behalf of the London Borough of Enfield.
Commenting on the news, Tony Crawley, Chief Executive of Zenova Group PLC said: “Addressing fire safety in high rise and multi residency accommodation is of critical importance, as was  recently highlighted by the London Fire Brigade when it revealed that there are more than 1,000 buildings throughout London which posed a serious fire safety risk to residents.

“We are, therefore, delighted that Pelling LLP has incorporated Zenova FP into its projects, which include improving fire safety for residents of Dover House, and that the London Borough of Enfield has specified the use of Zenova FP as a fire prevention product. With Pelling LLP consulting for multiple London Boroughs, we believe Zenova FP is well positioned to help address fire safety issues across the wider London area, and beyond.”

“In Zenova FP we have a fire-resistant paint which conforms to BS EN 13501-1, the very latest standard now adopted by building regulators, and is proven to prevent ignition and the spread of fire. Zenova FP is rapidly becoming established and recognised as the leading fire protection paint product in the market and, with the London Borough of Enfield specifying it for use in the buildings it owns, we believe we can play an important role in improving the fire safety of multi-residency buildings throughout the UK.”
