CPD Training on Effective Passive Fire Protection


As part of our mission to educate the construction industry about the importance of passive fire protection, we offer a CPD training titled “Effective Passive Fire Protection for Gaps and Penetrations in Buildings”.

The training is primarily aimed at specifiers but is highly beneficial for anyone involved in the design or management of the installation of passive fire protection solutions; architects, designers, contractors, project managers, consultants and surveyors.

The CPD raises awareness of the importance of early engagement thus ensuring compliant installations and enables effective design and specification of complete passive fire protection systems. The training also provides an overview of solutions available and what to look for to ensure suitability and compliance.

We offer the face to face presentation to architect practices, main contractors and other organisations that are involved in the specification of passive fire protection systems and that can bring in at least 10-12 delegates to the training. The session typically lasts 45 to 60 minutes and is held by one of our fire containment specialists. It is generally held at your premises, but if our Sandbach location is convenient for you, we can also accommodate it.

What does the CPD training cover?

  • Why passive fire protection is so critical
  • The concept of fire compartmentation
  • What is intumescent material and how does it work
  • The importance of test evidence and certification of passive fire protection products
