New Course in Passive Fire Protection Launched!

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection have just launched a revolutionary new course in Passive Fire Protection.

Known as the Foundation Course in Passive Fire Protection, it has been developed due to an ever increasing demand from employers and contractors who operate in the fire prevention sector. The syllabus has been developed from the current best practices as laid out by the ASFP.

As well as offering a basic groundwork and a functional knowledge base, the course aims to lay out a path of progression for participants. It also aims to be accessible and useful for designers, specifiers, contractors and specialist installers.

The course will feature a number of modules:

  • Module 1: Essential underpinning knowledge, fire science
  • Module 2: Installation of Passive Fire Protection:
    • Unit 1: Fire protection to the structural frame of the building, Fire retardant coatings
    • Unit 2: Fire resisting walls, floors and ceiling and fire-resistant glazing
    • Unit 3: Fire stopping, penetration seals, cavity barriers, ductwork and dampers and the building envelope
    • Unit 4: Fire resisting doors, industrial shutters and hardware
  • Module 3: Understanding active fire protection
  • Module 4: Understanding building regulations, approved documentation, regulatory guidance, CDM, CE marking, codes of practice, and BIM

The new course launches in April and will take 7 days to complete.

Being suppliers of passive fire protection, including fire seals, intumescent seals, fire and smoke seals and other such devices, Noberne Seals are fully supportive of this course. A lot of attention is paid to larger objects, such as smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, and items like fire seals are often overlooked. But, it is no exaggeration to say that seals can be the difference between life and death. Smoke seals can prevent the passage of smoke, and fire seals can help protect someone for 30-60 minutes, buying vital time for someone to escape, or wait for emergency services.
