New seminars to help architects carry out best practice

Solutions expert Schlüter-Systems has launched new seminars to help architects gain in-depth knowledge on some of Schlüter’s most popular product ranges – and how best to use them.

The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) RIBA accredited seminars, lasting 45 minutes each, have been designed to help participants keep up to date with the latest technologies and best practices to allow them to make informed decisions about which products to request in their specifications.

Held at architects’ premises, the training sessions are being offered free of charge with the added bonus of lunch included. Schlüter also host events at other locations nationwide with their trusted advisors, with food and drinks provided in a relaxed environment which provides an ideal opportunity for networking with other architects.

In Schlüter’s brand new Integrated Solutions for Tiled Wetrooms seminar, the company’s popular waterproofing and wetroom range will be explored and explained.

Ian Knifton, Head of Technical and Training, commented:

“The session will provide all the information and knowledge needed, from an integrated approach, on the solutions for wetroom installations at design and specification stage, and we hope that by the end of the seminar participants will have gained confidence in specifying an integrated solution for wetroom installations.”

The second seminar available is titled Movement Joints and Uncoupling Membranes for Tiled Coverings.

Ian explained:

“This session will provide information on how to solve problems such as moisture movement in the substrate or drying shrinkage by specifying the appropriate movement joints and uncoupling membranes at the specification phase.

“Participants will come away from the seminar confident in being able to specify movement joints and uncoupling membranes to counteract stresses and prevent future problems, such as failed sealed connections, cracked tiles and joint, from occurring.”

A representative from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) gave their feedback on the seminar, saying:

“This is an excellent seminar that is pitched at the right level for architects. It covers the key issue of movement in tiled wall and floor coverings very well and describes the best solutions to some very common problems.”

Both seminars include a 15 minute question and answer session and participants will receive a certificate upon completion.
