The NFCA represents contractors and manufacturers who install or provide passive fire protection for structures as required by building codes for the preservation of life safety. Member contractors install sprayed fireproofing, intumescent coatings and fireproofing board products. Contractors are approved to install these materials by fireproofing product manufacturers and some are covered by the UL Qualified Contractor Program.
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.
