Interior glass CPD seminar receives seal of approval from RIBA

Glass and glazing specialist GLASSOLUTIONS is offering architects and designers the opportunity to advance their knowledge with its new RIBA approved CPD seminar on interior glass specification.

The 45 minute seminar by the Saint-Gobain group company gives detailed information about recommended glass types, the latest regulations and numerous applications for interior glass within buildings.Real life projects illustrate how interior glass overcomes design challenges.

Kathryn Dalgleish, GLASSOLUTIONS’ Marketing Manager for the Commercial Sector, said: “Glass is such a versatile material which is often integral to the design of a building – both its façade and interior. We wanted to share our in-depth knowledge, especially in light of the recent changes (effective 1st April 2013) of Approved Document K of the Building Regulations (England), which relates to ‘Protection from Falling Collision and Impact’, so that more architects and designers can specify glass correctly, safely and with confidence.”

The seminar explains the key points relating to glass specification for interior applications and covers partitions, screens, doors, cladding, balustrades, guarding, overhead glazing, floors and stairs.

It provides an explanation of the different types of glass and associated concepts: annealed glass; toughened and heat soak tested glass; heat strengthened glass; laminated glass; and includes information on the impact testing of glass and safety glass marking requirements.

The RIBA approved CPD seminar follows the development by GLASSOLUTIONS of an online interactive interior glass tool, designed to inspire designers to use established brands and new glass products in a multitude of different ways to create stunning interiors.

GLASSOLUTIONS is the UK’s largest processor, distributor, installer and repairer of glass and glass systems. It has a turnover in excess of £110 million and employs around 1,100 people.
