PART Q – AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
What is the point of Part Q? – It’s aim is to prevent people breaking into a home through lower-level doors and windows. In the case of flats, it covers any part of a building from which there is access to the flats. It applies to new build only, but that includes dwellings created by a change of use. This seminar will also discuss what it means for doors and windows and which windows are covered.
A CLEARER VIEW ON GLASS SPECIFICATION
Correctly understanding fire glass specification is critical to ensuring a safe environment. This CPD seminar will explain how fire resistant glass is used within buildings to enhance light levels whilst still maintaining a safe environment for those inside. Correctly matching materials, such as seals between a frame and glass, is essential for fire glazing. Additionally learn about the important compatibility areas and how butt joint glazing can be used to share light to create a brighter environment. In some buildings, fire safety is just the start. Is security also an important issue and consideration for you or your client? In addition, this presentation will explain the different levels of security that can be achieved in combination with fire resistance using our specialist glass products. The difference is clear.
