The Mela will be held in Mumbai from 13th to 22nd April 2012. It will witness a unique blend of activities for ten days.

Importance of Fire Safety
Rapid urbanisation has been the catalyst in the massive infrastructure development we have seen since last five years in India. With the growth of high rise buildings, multiplexes, modern offices, malls, retail outlets, basement parking, underground metro stations, electrical installations in such locations play an important role in providing more comfort to the community at large. In today's connected societies, wires and cables have become an integral part of our homes and offices and are extensively used in electrical and electronic equipment for power supply, internal connections and communication from one device to another.
Fire mishaps caused by short circuit can be attributed to the usage of low quality insulation material which is not flame retardant. In addition, most of the building wires used are PVC which contains chlorine, when the wire catches fire, the chlorine reacts with oxygen present giving out dense toxic smoke and also emits corrosive acids. The toxic smoke emitted numbs the brain activity, causes irritation, impairs vision and prevents a person from locating a safe exit thereby creating panic during emergency situations.
Socio-Economic Impact of Fire Accidents!
Fire accidents on account on poor quality of wiring solutions can make a huge impact on the socio-economic quality of life of an urban citizen The biggest task at hand is to make the facilities safe and secured from any catastrophe like fire. Research points out that more than 15% of fire accidents occur due to the poor quality of wiring . An estimate describes the loss of life due to electrical fire accidents in two parts: one-third of deaths happens due to primary burning/electric shock and two-third of deaths happen due to inhaling of toxic gases. It just goes to show that smoke emitted from burning of cables and wires have lead to more deaths than burning itself. These details points to poor wiring solutions as the main cause of majority of loss.
The Lapp Solution!
Lapp Group has worked towards providing safe cabling solutions since its inception. The organisation has been promoting Halogen Free Flame Retardant (HFFR) wires and cables with high sustainability constants for diverse industries. The prime benefit of HFFR wires and cables is that they stop flame propagation through the sockets in which they are laid. They do not emit acidic gases, in-turn reducing the fatality because of smoke. Taking it further, the Lapp Group also offers Fire Survival (FS) cables which provide protection against short circuit even while burning under fire. The company also contributes to "green cause" by offering reliable and efficient cabling for Solar and Wind Energy.
Lapp intends to promote the awareness about fire safety at home. This will in help in creating safe homes that will build safer cities!
