Help with curtains

Published:  25 October, 2016

The UK's Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) is looking for assistance to develop guidance on the use and specification of active fire curtains.

Currently there is no independent guidance on the use and specification of active fire curtains, with available guidance limited to manufacturers’ literature and short guides on particular end-use applications

Assistance is sought from individuals, manufacturers or installers involved in the manufacture and installation of active fire barrier curtains.

The resulting guide will join the ASFP’s range of so-called Colour Books, which contain detailed information on the use, specification, fire testing and certification of various passive fire protection products, together with information on legislation relevant to the product concerned, such as Building Regulations and Risk Assessment legislation.

Other documents in the range include the ASFP Yellow Book – Fire protection for structural steel in buildings; and the ASFP Red Book – Fire-stopping: linear joint seals, penetration seals and small cavity barriers.

Any interested organisations should contact Niall Rowan on niall.rowan@asfp.org.uk.
