Educating Industry on Passive Fire Systems in New Zealand

Updated: Aug 27


The Connect Group's FireProtect team are working to change the stigma around Passive Fire Protection, from one of a costly afterthought to a well-planned and efficient specialised trade.


Around 50 industry professionals, ranging from Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers, joined The Connect Group team on February 21st to discuss the issues and complications around the install of Passive Fire Protection systems.




Over the course of the Passive Fire Protection seminar, our team ran our guests through the varied scenarios that can occur on-site in regards to Passive Fire Protection. Our goal was to better equip engineers, site managers, project managers and quantity surveyors, with knowledge on how to save their projects time and money with Passive Fire Protection installations and in turn, adding value to projects through a collaborative compliance-based approach.


FireProtect offers the industry one company to contact from the design stage through to installation and application of passive fire protection products - if you'd like to know more about what we can do for your project - contact eifion@connectgroup.co.nz - Technical Sales & Solutions for FireProtect.

Thank you to our sponsor, Potter Interior Systems.
