- Passive Fire Seminar
With an estimated 98% of NZ Buildings non-compliant in Fire Protection (BRANZ 2017) these types of events are critical to start raising awareness and influence change.
PFP Applicators attended this event in Christchurch and were thrilled to have some of their work showcased by Alan Page of Olsen Fire & Risk.
Some of our works were used as examples of the “how to perform correct Passive Fire Installations”. The PFPA “no compromises” on NZ Test Data, correctly installed and photographed as documented evidenced is leading the way in this industry. Our work is being recognised by some of NZ’s leading fire engineers & construction companies.
