This CPD aims to discuss the specific solutions that façades require when it comes to weatherproofing. It underscores the importance of having solutions that fit into each project’s needs and highlights how prefabrication can provide a reliable solution - in light of factors on site, such as rain, water, wind and cold temperature which can otherwise interfere with the final input. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The latest technologies and developments in weatherproofing membranes and pre-fabrication
- The main issues found on site and importance of weatherproofing pre-fabrication
- Using a project by project approach - detailing and design
- How to benefit from pre-fabrication technologies on different façade applications
- How to improve the project predictability and minimise problems
- How to raise the façade efficiency and final quality
- When and why we should specify prefabricated solutions for façade weatherproofing

Article
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a very durable synthetic rubber membrane and is widely used worldwide in various applications on façade walls. It has very stable properties such as vapour, air and watertightness along with elongation of >400% - allowing it to accommodate building differential movements. There are many important considerations in using EPDM in the UK and this CPD covers the specific technical requirements to be followed, as well as new developments in the industry. By the end of the article you should have a greater understanding of:
-The benefits of using EPDM membranes in interfaces
-The main characteristics and usage of EPDM membranes
- The standards EPDM's have to comply with including CE marking and tests
- The technical requirements needed to apply EPDM in the UK market
- Current EPDM available and new developments for the future
