Building Regulations Part L 2010. Thermal, Solar and Air Permeability Requirements for Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling (specialist unit for new build, non-dwellings)
Type: Seminar
This material is designed as one of a series of seminars that investigates Building Regulations part L as it applies to windows, doors and curtain walling. This unit focuses solely on new build, non-dwellings. This unit is seen as an alternative available to either sector specific practices or those wanting to cover the material in modular form. The aim is to enhance the deisgn process leading to best selection according to building design and performance needs.
  • Part L in the context of reducing CO2 emissions
  • The specific regulations, what they mean and responsibilty for compliance
  • Notional and limiting U-values and the specification danger
  • Solar control, regulations and guidance
  • Air permeability in relation to products, installation and pressure barriers By exploring one aspect of the Part L in context of glazed fenestrations we are able to simplify the details and allow greater time for discussion and response.
Building Regulations Part L 2010: Thermal, Solar and Air Permeability Considerations for Windows, Door and Curtain Walling
Type: Seminar
This material is designed as a thorough, unbiased review of Approved Documents for Part L 2010 of the Building Regulations as they pertain to windows doors and curtain walling. By using extracts from key documents the seminar guides specifiers and engineers through both limiting and notional U-values, solar gain and air permeability issues
  • Part L in the context of the environment
  • A review of the regulatory requirements applicable to windows, doors and curtain walling
  • Comparison of U-values for notional, reference and actual buildings
  • A highlight of Regulation 17D for consequential improvements
  • Solar gain, both regulatory and in practice
  • Air permeability and pressure barriers
  • Part L transitional arrangements
