Understanding Passive Fire Protection

by | Mar 8, 2016 | Facilities Management, Health & Safety, Maintenance

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection in Ireland (ASFPI) has recently organised a forum at the Facilities Ireland Exhibition on Passive Fire Protection (PFP)

Industry experts have covered a range of  issues relating to the specification, installation, inspection and management of PFP systems.

Due to a number of high profile failures, largely relating to poor Passive Fire Protection installation, the Irish Government in April 2012 announced plans to introduce new building control arrangements. The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2014 (BCAR) have now been in place for two years but ensuring the correct installation and management of Passive Fire Protection is still a major issue.

Eyre Massy, Acacia’s Technical Services Director was a participant in the forum and presented the “The Role of Facilities Managers in Passive Fire Protection”
