Delivering a Through Wall Rainscreen Solution
This is a CPD presentation focused on the design of a through-wall façade solution, where we will explore crucial factors to consider when selecting components.

In this comprehensive CPD session, we define a through-wall as comprising all wall components from the external sheathing board outward, culminating in the façade. By dissecting the façade system into eight essential elements, we delve into individual product performance requirements, empowering you to craft a holistic solution.

Moreover, we offer a comprehensive overview of fire ratings and introduce our certified, fire-rated solutions. Discover the spotlight on sheathing boards, as we delve into specific areas that demand your attention. Additionally, we delve into key considerations surrounding health and safety and the environment, ensuring a well-rounded approach to your façade design. This engaging presentation is designed to both inform and inspire.

After completing this CPD delegates should:
1. Have a holitic review of through wall facade creation, especially in relation to fire.
2.Be able to impart an understanding of which facade elements are key to building safety.
3. Know the importance of Certification and Testing in facade design.
4. Have an understanding of material limitations, no one product will cover all technical challenges.
5. Have a consideration of the benefits of system certification.
