ASFP - Association For Specialist Fire Protection
The Association was formed in 1976, and represents UK manufacturers and contractors of specialist passive fire protection products such as fire resisting and smoke control dampers, with associate members from regulatory, certification, testing and consulting bodies. The ASFP seeks to increase awareness and understanding of the nature of fire and the various forms, functions and benefits provided by passive fire protection. They are willing to make available their specialist knowledge on all aspects of fire protection and can assist specifiers and main contractors in identifying products suitable for specific requirements, both in the UK and related overseas markets. The Association encourages experimental work related to passive fire protection and promotes consideration and discussion of all issues affecting the fire protection of buildings. Major publication/coloured books are referenced in Approved Document B - Fire safety, the government guidance to Building Regulations for England & Wales. Coloured books are comprehensive documents on the use and evaluation of passive fire protection products in buildings. Many contain lists of products which have had their performance verified by third party certification. They do not cover installation.
