Association for Specialist Fire Protection

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) has released the fifth edition of the  ‘Yellow Book’, Fire Protection for Structural Steel in Buildings.

The Yellow Book, which was originally published 30 years ago, has become the definitive reference to the provision of fire protection to structural steel in buildings, and is referenced in Approved Document B to the Building Regulations in England and Wales.

It provides a source of validated performance data about such products provided by ASFP members. It also provides a comprehensive guide to proprietary materials and systems, all of which are manufactured, marketed or site applied by ASFP members.

The fifth edition of the ASFP ‘Yellow Book’ incorporates a significant number of important changes. It has been completely restructured to take into account major developments in the standardisation of the testing and assessment of products that protect structural steel members.

The new Yellow Book is technically the most advanced and authoritative the ASFP has ever produced, having been revised over a period of two years and via many meetings of the ASFP’s Task Group 1 (reactive products), Task Group 2 (non-reactive products) and the ASFP Technical Committee. It will be an invaluable source of information for all those professionals working with steel that requires fire protection.
