Addressing RIBA core curriculum requirements, Fire Resistant Glazing: A System not a Product examines why specification must focus on the performance and certification of the overall fire glass solution – not just fire resistant glazing in isolation.Lasting approximately one hour, the RIBA CPD seminar provides detailed insight into the types of fire resistant glasses available, including EW rated products which deliver both integrity and radiation control.The presentation also examines the importance of impact performance and the increasing need for acoustic insulation.
Commenting on why CGI International has launched the new RIBA CPD seminar, Simon Ellison, technical manager, said: “There is a lot of misconception in the market when it comes to the specification of fire resistant glazing. Certification is only ever applicable to a complete system and never the fire glass in isolation. The RIBA CPD seminar aims to address this by combining legislation, theory and practical examples.”
RIBA CPD seminars can be delivered on-site at your own premises or as part of a factory visit to CGI International’s headquarters in Haydock. To arrange a RIBA CPD seminar, email firstname.lastname@example.org
