Nicholson STS

Overview

Nicholson is a manufacturer and supplier of quality, functional and innovative roofing systems to the construction and solar industries. Our brands provide a go-to solution for many common roof construction details. AIRTRAK™ AIRTRAK™ is a proprietary range of ventilators designed specifically for the ventilation of roof voids. AIRTRAK™ assists specifiers, builders and specialist contractors in helping them to meet the requirements of the Building Regulations in relation to the important issue of roof void ventilation and the control of condensation. ROOFTRAK™ The ROOFTRAK™ IFP Integrated Fixing Point system has been developed specifically around the challenging scenario of providing a connection to the building structure whilst maintaining 100% integrity of the weathering membrane. The typical uses of the IFP include: - Cladding support framework - PV and thermal solar panels - Timber decking - Balustrades - Other roof mounted equipment and plant ROOFBOX™ ROOFBOX™ is a proprietary riser weathering system, designed specifically to address the inherent problems of waterproofing service penetrations at roof level. These insulated aluminium units are powder coated and provide an alternative to the traditional 'dog kennel' approach to weathering services as they exit the roof. CPD Nicholson STS offer three online CPD presentations. For more information please contact info@nicholsonsts.com

Going Through the Roof: Key Considerations for Specifiers Around the Issue of Roof Penetrations
This CPD provides attendees with a specific insight into the issues surrounding roof level service penetrations. Attendees will be guided through the key considerations relating to maintaining the integrity of the all-important weathering layer where ducts, pipes and cables exit the riser on to the roof. The session will identify the methods and protocols that are essential for the effective and durable execution of this often-challenging detail. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- The evolution of the flat roof and how roof constructions have changed
- The utilisation of the roof area and how we use roofs today
- The key considerations when designing roof penetrations
- The pitfalls of a reactive approach
- The benefits of a proactive, collaborative approach
- The science of effective weathering
- The benefits of a proprietary system

This CPD is also available as an online presentation. Please contact info@nicholsonsts.com for more information.

Roof Void Ventilation and the Control of Condensation
This CPD is designed to educate and enlighten architects and specifiers about issues relating to interstitial condensation, typical scenarios and conditions which contribute to the likelihood of interstitial condensation forming and the possible effects that it can have on the structure. It will also point up the relevant parts of British Standard BS5250 that relate to ventilation of roof structures and will show how proprietary products can help to meet these requirements. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Interstitial condensation and its causes
- The importance of the Vapour Control Layer (VCL)
- The principles of roof void ventilation as set out in British Standard BS5250
- How much ventilation is required
- Ways in which products can help achieve the requirements and ventilate correctly
