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

 

About
