Understanding Passive Fire Protection

Manchester seminarThe Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) offers a series of regional CPD seminars in locations throughout the UK and Ireland.

The events provide essential advice on all aspects of passive fire protection; its specification, installation, inspection and maintenance.

Aimed at improving awareness of passive fire protection, Understanding Passive Fire Protection, offers presentations from technical experts from across the fire sector, including the ASFP, British Woodworking Federation, Guild of Architectural Ironmongers, and the Chief Fire Officers Association. It covers all aspects of passive fire protection, including an overview of risks in buildings in relation to passive fire protection.

Events include detailed discussions on all aspects of passive fire protection including the role of fire doors, frames and fire seals; door hardware maintenance and replacement; fire-resistant glazing; fire ducts and dampers; structural fire protection; compartment wall penetrations and firestopping.  

The events are suitable for anyone who is responsible for specifying or inspecting passive fire protection or those appointing trades that could cause damage to existing fire protection in the process of their work. They should particularly appeal to practising Fire Risk Assessors, Responsible Persons, Local Authorities, Facilities Managers, Building Control, and Care Home Providers.
