Latest technical insights for specifying fire resistant glazing in latest Promat CPD

Promat UK‘s latest RIBA-approved CPD seminar offers up-to-date technical guidance on how to specify dependable fire resistant glazing for all kinds of commercial, public and domestic applications.

“The Burning Question” is a 60-minute seminar which enables architects, contractors and other building professionals to benefit from Promat’s 40+ years’ experience in the design, manufacture, testing and installation of passive fire protection products. Amongst the topics covered are the fire regulations, standards and basics of fire glass classifications, through to appropriate uses of fire glass, the different types of glass and framing commonly used, and how to specify with confidence.

The CPD seminar is available to book now and can be delivered in person in a ‘lunch and learn’ format or via online platforms such as Zoom or Teams. The presentation is ideal for any specifier working on a project where passive fire protection needs to be integrated into glazing elements, such as partitions, screens, windows and doors, as well as atria, glass floors and curtain walling.

Drawing on Promat UK’s expertise as both a glass and framing systems manufacturer and processor, the CPD aims to furnish specifiers with the key information they need to make informed choices and avoid the pitfalls, primarily using a fully-tested system approach such as its SYSTEMGLAS range.

Cath McLean, Segment Manager – Glass at Promat UK, and author of the CPD, said: “Designing and installing effective passive fire protection measures using glass requires a thorough understanding of how the different materials combine and interact. And, unfortunately, there is no margin for error, which is why we’ve created this training resource to help specifiers navigate the various regulations and standards and understand how to get it right for critical applications that protect people’s lives.”
