Passive fire protection is those parts of a building or structure that slow the spread of fire or smoke such as fire-resistant glazing, firewalls and doors. As building technology develops so too does the range of materials and systems that can be used. The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) have recently published three new guidance documents concerning the following areas:

Advisory Note 27 provides advice on the structural fire protection of steel beams with corrugated webs

Advisory Note 28 covers the firestopping of metal pipes where flanges are located close to service penetration seals

Advisory Note 29 covers planned maintenance and inspection of passive fire protection provisions

In addition a number of other documents available from the ASFP have also recently been updated.

The new documents can be downloaded from the publications section of the ASFP website at:
