CPD Courses

Cavity Barriers in Ventilated Façades

This course is ideal for contractors and manufacturers of rainscreen or cladding systems designed to allow for ventilation and drainage in the system.

This CPD looks at some of the key functions a ventilated façade must accommodate; the UK regulatory requirements for fire protection within this facade type including the latest changes regarding fire classifications. It looks at the different types of fire barriers, which ones are suitable for this specific application and what important principles they must incorporate; also the testing and certification of them and assists you to find the routes to prove compliance when installing the cavity barrier component into the façade system. It also puts forward some typical problematic areas and how to overcome them early in the design stage to avoid them surfacing down the line on site and shows the fundamentals of installing the Siderise RH & RV cavity barrier system for ventilated façades.

Learning objectives

  • Functions of ventilated façades
  • The regulatory requirements
  • The design of cavity barriers for ventilated façades
  • Routes to compliance
  • Product selection

 

CPD length: 45mins - 1hr
