Actionair’s CPD aims to provide essential education on fire and smoke dampers. CE marking requirements will be explained and how this influences the installation of dampers, along with the importance of testing and accurate installation in accordance with DW145 and the implications of the overall design to installation process. Possible legal implications of incorrect installation will be discussed along with potential personal liability prosecutions. ‘Playing with Fire’ will demonstrate how a legally compliant damper installation will prevent the need for costly post-installation approval.

Sika Sarnafil has launched a new and improved ‘Successful Roof Refurbishment’ Continual Professional Development (CPD) seminar, aimed at those looking to specify high performance products for roof renovations. Created by the experts at Sarnafil Plus, the company’s specialist refurbishment offer, the interactive RICS Approved CPD has been updated specifically to aid specifiers, including building surveyors, facilities managers and building managers, in their decision making process. The CPD contains vital up-to-date information on how to identify the causes of roof failure, investigation methods, compliance with efficiency regulations, system options and how to specify the best materials for a project.

The CPD can be combined with a live demonstration where attendees are shown the various Sarnafil waterproofing systems being installed and get the chance to try their hand at welding the membrane themselves. Head of sales for single ply membranes at Sika, John O’Raw explains why Sarnafil Plus chose to upgrade and improve the CPD: “With the refurbishment market growing fast we noticed that building managers, FMs, architects and surveyors were increasingly seeking out the latest

information about regulations and roofing systems. We’re dedicated to supporting these specifiers in an ever changing industry, so an update was essential to provide the highest quality educational material to meet those needs.

“The CPD provides attendees with invaluable knowledge about current legislation and regulations, including British Standards, EU Standards, energy efficiency requirements as set out in Part L and BREEAM assessments, as well as learning about our newly available site inspection and supervision tool.” Attendees will also be able to find out more about the benefits of a market-leading single-point guarantee, which protects against any unlikely problems that may arise from the failure of roofing membranes and the existing substrate, caused by incorrect design or installation, giving all parties involved complete peace of mind.

The CPD is 60 minutes long, including a question and answer session, and will be delivered by one of four dedicated experienced Sarnafil Plus Refurbishment Surveyors. If you are interested in taking the new CPD, visit the website or call Sika directly. 01707 394444 roof-refurbishment.html
