Polypipe has been awarded RIBA accreditation for its latest CPD seminar on water based under- floor heating systems. With the industry changing so

rapidly, Polypipe understands the importance of supporting the next generation of heating and plumbing professionals. Through a combination of CPD sessions delivered within architect practices and installation focused training courses delivered at the Professional Development Centre in Doncaster, Polypipe is dedicated to equipping industry professionals with all the skills and knowledge they need to adapt to new technology and best practice.

Covering a broad spectrum of topics to help architects in the specification of water based underfloor heating systems, Polypipe’s latest CPD has been assessed by the Royal Institute of British Architects, and is worth double CPD points.

Developed by Polypipe’s experienced Product Managers and Training Facilitators, the CPD seminar is designed to expand knowledge on water based under- floor heating. From the aesthetic benefits, to the energy saving associated with water-based underfloor heating, participants will receive valuable training on a range of topics, including an overview of the latest generation of temperature controls. Polypipe’s CPD seminar also covers futureproofing by exploring the latest energy efficient technologies. For example, the use of ground or air source heat pumps with water based underfloor heating, and smart technology controls allows specifiers to create a heating system that’s both comfortable and ‘green.’

There is a common misconcep- tion in the industry that underfloor heating is only avail- able for ground floors, however,

modern underfloor heating systems offer solutions for a variety of floor constructions from screeded and suspended to retrofitting over existing floors. And the systems are compatible with your choice of floor finish, including carpet, wood, vinyl and laminate as well as the tradition- ally specified tile finish. Rachel Smith, Head of Marketing at Polypipe Building Products, says: “Following the launch of the Polypipe
