Hinge Technology - Secured by Design
Type: Seminar
This seminar aims:
  • To address the ignorance as to what really constitutes a secure door, the steps that should be taken to ensure compliance to PAS 024 and SBD
  • To highlight how choosing the wrong components can be detrimental in compliance with Parts 'M' & 'L' of the Building Regulations
  • To prove that aesthetics need not be compromised for the sake of performance
  • To show the thermal efficiency of the window or door is only part of the story. Out boarding of windows and doors will become commonplace over the next few years. Cutting corners here will lead to high remedial and maintenance costs. Advise on getting this right first time.

A Designer's Guide to Specifying Warranted 316 Austenitic Stainless Steel Fasteners and Sealants
Type: Literature
Fastener specification is critical to the performance of roofing and cladding systems. The fastener works in close combination with sealants, so therefore the specification of the fastener and sealing products needs to be addressed at the early stages of detail design, to allow the completed envelope to perform throughout its life. This design guide addresses the principle performance criteria of fasteners and sealants, namely durability (corrosion resistance), weathersealing, the Part L issues of airsealing and thermal bridging, aesthetics, and technical performance.
