Rainscreen cladding offers designers and engineers a wealth of options in new build and renovation projects. The CPD Providers featured below are at the top of their game, and at the leading edge of rainscreen technological innovation.
Design and Specification Considerations of Metal Rainscreen Facade Systems
This Seminar aims to educate and inform the audience on the design parameters, material and applications, of metal rainscreen façade solutions, primarily in an external environment. The presentation covers such issues as design considerations within metal rainscreen, the specification standards, material finishes and capabilities, cost influences, project planning and applications.
Sorba provides an external envelope solution which covers all aspects of façade design, manufacture and installation of metal rainscreen and associated systems, within both the external and internal sectors. Sorba also has vast experience and technical knowledge of using other façade materials, from concrete through to glass, and therefore can offer a wide range of material pallets throughout the design process.
Design Opportunities in Composite Rainscreen Technology
This seminar explains how composite cladding material can effectively be used as a decorative rainscreen cladding with smooth and aggregate applications. It describes the manufacturing process, technical and environmental issues, and offers an opportunity for practical discussion on how to fix the panels to buildings. All relevant certification is included.
Steni is the only decorative rainscreen panel made with composite material. It is lightweight and has the choice of aggregate or smooth finish. The material allows the over-cladding of all types of building while eliminating all wet trade. The unique production process allows for minimum waste on each project and provides 25 year guarantees.
Lightweight Natural Stone and Glass Ventilated Rainscreen Facades and the Requirements of Modern Architecture
The CPD aims are to explain the distinction between handset and lightweight natural stone ventilated rainscreen panels, to demonstrate how to achieve robust lightweight rainscreen stone facades, to outline specification considerations, and to summarise the principles and features of the Alsecco Airtec system.
Alsecco is one of the leading façade manufacturers and suppliers in the UK, with a broad system portfolio including thermally efficient external wall insulation, solid wall insulation, ventilated rainscreen cladding and anti-crack render-only solutions. Through its extensive knowledge and expertise in a wide range of sectors and markets, Alsecco can ensure the right system is specified for your project.
The Use of Insulation within Rainscreen Systems
This module is an introduction to rainscreen cladding systems and explains how the choice of insulation affects design as well as thermal and fire performance, delivers an understanding of the principles of rainscreen cladding systems, the regulations that apply to them, the different types of insulation and their performance characteristics and the importance of fire resistance in rainscreen cladding systems.
Knauf Insulation is the UK's leading insulation company and represents one of the most respected and progressive names in European building products. Knauf Insulation is the only UK manufacturer of glass mineral wool, rock mineral wool and extruded polystyrene insulation products, giving an unrivalled range for building, process and appliance insulation, as well as fabrication applications.
