COMING SOON: RIBA Approved CPD Webinar

Architects can find insight on the design of building membranes as part of a RIBA Approved CPD Webinar taking place on 7th February, between 12:00 and 13:00.

Subject: Euroclass A2 Vertical Membranes – how to achieve maximum fire safety Euroclass A2 for your complete external wall system with the Safe One façade breather membranes, especially for high-rise and high-risk buildings.

Presented in conjunction with ITP’s European partners at Stamisol, this webinar session is available within RIBA Providers Network CPD Day at RIBA Academy.

CONTENT OF THE PRESENTATION

  • Why use a façade membrane?
  • Current Building Regs In the UK (ADB) for vertical membranes used in high rise buildings.
  • Why we need updated standards for membranes now that Class A2 are available for high-rise buildings and high-risk buildings.
  • What do experts say?
  • The first façade breather membrane in Euroclass A2-s1,d0 now closes the gap for a full façade system to Class A2 for vertical rear-ventilated façades.
  • Applications – High-rise buildings > 11m and high-risk buildings such as hospitals, retirement homes, schools, nurseries, universities, apartment blocks…
  • Technical data: What do you have to look for and which certifications are essential?
  • Fire tests: What’s the performance of Safe One (pictured) in comparison to Class B and Class E façade membranes?
  • Why is Safe One ideal to support re-cladding of high-rise buildings to give a Class A2-s1,d0 system?
  • Compliance and competence, now recommended by the DJH report covering façade design, supply and installation.

ITP are the exclusive suppliers of Safe One in the UK.
