Looking for a NFCA Accredited Fireproofing Contractor? NFCA represents fireproofing contractors who install passive fireproofing products such as Sprayed Fire-Resistive Material (SFRM) and Intumescent Fire-Resistive Material (IFRM), to protect building structural materials from fire, as required by building codes, and the manufacturers and associates who provide those products.



The NFCA represents fireproofing contractors and manufacturers who install or provide passive fire protection for structures as required by building codes for the preservation of life safety. Member fireproofing contractors install Sprayed Fire-Resistive Material (SFRM), Intumescent Fire-Resistive Material (IFRM) and fireproofing board products. Contractors are approved to install these materials by fireproofing product manufacturers.

The NFCA works to improve the proper use and application of industry products through development of standard practices and educational programs for both product users and members.
