Factory tour and seminar CPD

Seminar details:  This factory tour and CPD aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the benefits, design and manufacture of bespoke secondary glazing.  The CPD will put the manufacturing process into context, with the final part of the tour ending in the showroom to look at the final products in situ. It should also give more confidence in specifying secondary glazing, after seeing the quality processes in the manufacturing stages to ensure that the end product meets the required performance levels, whilst integrating sympathetically with all the other building elements.
  • An overview of the manufacturing process of bespoke secondary glazing systems
  • An introduction to the different types of products ranging from slimline, to mid-weight to heavy-duty security, in the showroom
  • The RIBA CPD presentation “Understanding and specifying Secondary Glazing”  will then put the manufacturing process into context showing the benefits of the final product.
