WARREN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conquest Firespray, a manufacturer of fire-rated architectural and engineered duct systems, today announced that the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code has recently made a strong statement concerning the subcode that addresses fire-resistance ratings of assemblies that are not symmetrical, under Section 703.2.1. This new development, published in the Summer 2017 Construction Code Communicator, Vol. 29 #2, cites N.J.A.C. 5:23-3.7, concerning “municipal approvals of alternative materials, equipment, or methods of construction, which applies to municipal approvals of alternative materials, equipment, or methods of construction.” For fire-rated ductwork assemblies, the Construction Code Communicator states: “In the case of fire rated ductwork, fire test standards ISO 6944, ISO 6944-01, or ASTM E2816 where the fire rated ducts for ventilation are tested to fire exposures may be considered equivalent to the standard-time temperature curve, as set forth for ‘built-in’ assemblies in ASTM E119. Under all three of these ventilation duct fire resistance test standards, there are four conditions that are necessary for fully testing the assemblies: The State of New Jersey is now in agreement with Conquest Firespray, which recently made the provocative declaration that the industry-standard horizontal HVAC fire-rated assemblies are not in compliance with requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). That conclusion was reached, and confirmed, in the market during discussions with numerous state and local code officials, contractors and engineers over a twelve-month period. This work has revealed broad non-compliance. The recent statement by the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code is consistent with Conquest’s findings. “The State of New Jersey action follows a recent Florida Declaratory Statement and from the City of Houston, now a matter of law, that recognizes the need for testing of all types of ducts, vertical and horizontal,” said John Pattillo, a Conquest Principal and Head of Engineering. “All types of ducts must be tested, vertical and horizontal. This is a matter not just of liability but of life safety, and we’re pleased that the State of New Jersey has recognized this pressing issue.” In response to this situation, Conquest and its fully code-compliant Flamebar® BW11 solution, has introduced an education program to help specifiers, design professionals, and contractors achieve compliance. The program qualifies for continuing education credits and offers modules in five key areas: Architects, Engineers, Building Code Officials, Fire Marshals, and Mechanical Contractors. Direct links to the no-cost / no obligation code education modules: Conquest Firespray manufactures and markets Flamebar® fire-rated architectural and engineered duct solutions to contractors, engineers, and architects. Conquest has served HVAC mechanical and sheet-metal contractors since 1998.

OFS invested in Conquest in July of 2014, providing growth capital to Conquest's legacy business that allowed the Company to expand into the large diameter coiled tubing market with the initial purchase of two 2-3/8" and two 2-5/8" coil tubing units. During 2016, Conquest took delivery of two additional 2-5/8" coil tubing units.  In Q1 2017, due to the Company's continued strong growth and high demand for its services, Conquest placed an order for an additional three 2-5/8" coil tubing units with expected deliveries in the second half of 2017. The Company's investment in large diameter coil tubing units allowed it to capitalize on the industry's prevailing completions trends. In the wake of an incredibly difficult market and operating environment, Conquest was able to aggressively expand its business and take market share when most of its peers were contracting.  Conquest consistently achieved high utilization rates at favorable pricing while maintaining an excellent safety record. "We are very excited about the results we were able to achieve from this investment, particularly given the time period in which Conquest operated.  The last three years for the industry have proven to be one of the worst downturns we have seen since the 1980s. Due to Conquest's operational efficiencies and differentiated service offering, the Company was able to provide its customers with substantial cost savings in a low price commodity environment," said Robert Whilden, Managing Director of OFS. "Working with Alex, Nathan, and the entire Conquest team to develop and grow the business has been an absolute pleasure. The Conquest team led the Company through a challenging market environment to produce market-leading profitability and, ultimately, an extremely positive outcome for all shareholders. The coil tubing drill out program developed by Conquest has been instrumental to the success of the business," said Bruce Ross, Managing Partner of OFS. "We hope the Conquest team realizes similar success in the business's next chapter." "We selected OFS as our capital partner based on their commitment to the oilfield service space and their successful history of helping companies grow rapidly. Our working relationship with OFS allowed us to quickly develop a strategy for growing the business during the energy downcycle and to position the Company to achieve a high level of profitability. The partnership with OFS not only allowed us to grow our core coiled tubing business, but also provided us an opportunity to expand our product offering to include chemical and nitrogen products and services. We are very pleased that the Conquest team was able to work through a very tough energy cycle and achieve these significant results for all shareholders," said Alex Dempsey, Conquest's CEO. Simmons & Company International served as exclusive financial advisor and Locke Lord acted as legal counsel to Conquest in the transaction.

WARREN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conquest Firespray, a manufacturer of fire-rated architectural and engineered duct systems, today announced that John Pattillo, a Conquest Principal and Head of Engineering, acknowledged that he, like most construction professionals throughout the U.S., had responsibility for projects that – through lack of code awareness – mistakenly installed non-compliant duct assemblies in the field for years. Mr. Pattillo hopes to prevent the continued use of hazardous duct assemblies by acknowledging how easy it is to make the error. Mr. Pattillo is now committed to educating engineers, architects, code officials, fire marshals, and mechanical contractors on the non-compliance issue. Conquest Firespray recently made the remarkable statement that industry-standard, horizontal HVAC fire-rated assemblies are not in compliance with requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). That conclusion was reached, and confirmed, in the market during discussions with numerous state and local code officials, contractors and engineers over a twelve-month period. “Repeating dangerous errors that were made for years through lack of awareness of the code, many professionals are still designing and installing non-code-compliant duct configurations and enclosures,” said Mr. Pattillo, a former general contracting senior executive. “To my surprise and embarrassment, I learned that fire-rated assemblies react much differently in horizontal and vertical conditions. Vertical systems cannot simply be turned on their side for horizontal assemblies, and assemblies must be tested for fire inside and fire outside conditions. The reality is that people are choosing systems without understanding code requirements. The reason is simple: The industry is focused on the mechanical code and ignoring important provisions of the International Building Code.” “Today’s ceramic fiber duct-wrap and drywall assemblies in horizontal applications represent a threat to life safety, and the problem needs to be addressed by insisting on evidence that assemblies are tested, and by confirming proper construction of these assemblies. Clearly, the industry needs to be educated in the proper design and construction of fire-rated HVAC assemblies. Conquest Firespray offers this necessary training at no cost,” Pattillo added. In response to this awareness gap, Conquest and its fully code-compliant Flamebar® BW11 solution, has introduced comprehensive online training programs for fire-rated HVAC assemblies to help specifiers, design professionals, and contractors achieve compliance. Conquest offers educational modules in five key areas: Architects, Engineers, Building Code Officials, Fire Marshals, and Mechanical Contractors. Conquest Firespray manufactures and markets Flamebar® fire-rated architectural and engineered duct solutions to contractors, engineers, and architects. Conquest has served HVAC mechanical and sheet-metal contractors since 1998.

WARREN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conquest Firespray, a manufacturer of fire-rated architectural and engineered duct systems, today announced that its code experts have detected broad non-enforcement of the International Building Code (IBC), in part from a misinterpretation of the existing codes and/or lack of awareness of code requirements. That conclusion was reached, and reconfirmed, in the market during discussions with numerous state and local code officials, contractors, and engineers over a year-long period. Conquest Firespray recently made the dramatic statement that most industry-standard horizontal HVAC fire-rated assemblies are not in compliance with requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). States such as Florida (and others soon to concur with Florida’s findings) are now in agreement with Conquest Firespray’s findings. “The IBC and other applicable codes are not theories; indeed, they are prescriptive practices required for new construction based on lessons learned from past building failures,” said John Pattillo, a Conquest principal and head of engineering. “The codes are only as effective as code officials understanding and enforcing code provisions.” “Perhaps even more dangerous than the non-compliance is that current practices of insulating non-compliant duct systems not only mask the problem, but accelerate system failure,” John Pattillo added. “This imperils the lives of occupants and first responders, and it really needs to be addressed through immediate enforcement of the codes.” In response to this situation, Conquest and its fully code-compliant Flamebar® BW11 solution, has introduced an education program to help specifiers, design professionals, and contractors achieve compliance. The program qualifies for continuing education credits and offers modules in five key areas: Architects, Engineers, Building Code Officials, Fire Marshals, and Mechanical Contractors.

WARREN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conquest Firespray, a manufacturer of fire-rated architectural and engineered duct systems, today announced that the State of Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation has issued an official “Declaratory Statement” concerning building code Chapter 7 (“Fire and Smoke Protection Features”) sections 707.3.1, 713.4, 713.14, and 909.21.3. The Department affirmed that fire-rated HVAC duct systems must be tested for vertical and horizontal configurations for “fire inside” and “fire outside” conditions. The “Declaratory Statement” comes after Conquest Firespray presented the matter of horizontal non-compliance in Broward County, Dade County, and others. These jurisdictions recognized the importance of compliance and trained their code officials in the proper enforcement of fire-rated duct systems. This Declaratory Statement is a matter of public record (link) and is now a matter of law in the State of Florida. Conquest Firespray recently made the remarkable statement that, within Florida and elsewhere, industry-standard, horizontal HVAC fire-rated assemblies are not in compliance with requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). That conclusion was reached, and confirmed, in the market during discussions with numerous state and local code officials, contractors and engineers over a twelve-month period. This work has revealed broad non-compliance. “There’s an enormous number of horizontal duct systems in place today that lack the proper testing and are therefore non-compliant with IBC. This creates not only a life safety hazard, but a potential liability to project architects, engineers, and contactors,” said John Pattillo, a Conquest Principal and Head of Engineering. “This Florida Declaratory Statement, now a matter of law, recognizes the need for testing of all types of ducts, vertical and horizontal.” In response to this situation, Conquest and its fully code-compliant Flamebar® BW11 solution, has introduced a no-cost / no-obligation online education program to help specifiers, design professionals, and contractors achieve compliance, with education modules in five key areas: Architects, Engineers, Building Code Officials, Fire Marshals, and Mechanical Contractors.

Background: Chronic stump and phantom limb pain after amputation for critical ischemia significantly affect patients' quality of life and pose challenging clinical problems. Pre-emptive analgesia attempts to prevent chronic postoperative pain by minimizing painful stimuli before and during surgery. Methods: This systematic literature review aimed to evaluate the evidence supporting the use of pre-emptive analgesia in minimizing the risk of chronic stump and phantom pain after lower limb amputation for critical ischemia of peripheral vascular disease. Results: A total of 11 studies have been retrieved. Five different types of analgesic drugs were evaluated (local anesthetics, opiates, N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonists, a2-agonist, and gamma-aminobutyric acid analogues), administered separately or in combinations, through the oral, intravenous, epidural, or regional (perineural) route. The beneficial effect of combined bupivacaine, diamorphine, and clonidine in reducing the risk of phantom limb pain was supported by only one study (level 3 evidence). Epidural and perineural infusions containing local anesthetic ± opiates are effective in treating acute perioperative pain, although not without potentially serious complications. Most studies were characterized by high drop-out rates because of disease-associated mortality. Conclusions: There is no robust evidence supporting the use of pre-emptive analgesia to minimize the risk of chronic pain after amputation for critical ischemia of peripheral vascular disease. The methods used are, however, effective in treating acute postoperative pain. © Annals of Vascular Surgery Inc.
