This comprehensive volume supports architects, contractors, consultants and developers by offering an invaluable guide to passive fire protection products and solutions which conform to current building regulations.

The ROCKWOOL FIREPRO range includes penetration seals, cavity barriers and cavity fire stops, linear joint seals for firestopping applications and fire protection systems for structural steel and concrete and building services applications.
The FIREPRO Book also highlights the independent guidance documents available from the ASFP including, Technical Guidance Document 17; Red Book; Best Practice Guide; and On-site guide to installing fire stopping. It covers relevant regulations for specifiers and a range of British standards, including BS 476-20; BS EN 1366-3; BS EN 1363-1; and BS EN 13501-2.
