FSi has developed an easy to use Product Selector App. The App is easily downloaded from either Google Play Store or the Apple Store. The FSi Product Selector App provided information to which type of FSi Systems may be required to be installed depending on the application requirement. The process is a few simple questions from drop down menus which lead to either a FSi product recommendation and in some cases a typical Auto-CAD pdf details showing the requirements. It has been developed to aid in the correct selection of FSi Systems for typical firestopping requirements and will offer a clear, easy insight into the complexity of firestopping product selection and specification. FSi also have extended our BIM offering to include full NBS product selection on RIBA NBS Plus. FSi continue to extend the scope of certification to the highest industry standards to enable systems to offer solutions to complex conditions in the industry with FSi product Selector App being just one of the systems being constantly developed.
