Raising awareness

Tratos UK Ltd has been innovating advanced-technology fire-resistant cable for years, pushing the highest safety standards even further.

Not only producing the best quality cable, but it has been lobbying for root and branch
increases in safety standards for all cables used in buildings.

Tratos remains committed to educating all the stakeholders and especially the construction industry about Construction Products Regulation.

It has organised a number of workshops around the country, which were well received.

Dr Maurizio Bragagni OBE has given several interviews to the media and has answered questions about the urgency of implementing stricter fire regulations for buildings’ cables in the UK.
