RIBA-Approved CPD on Glazed Screens’ Role in Fire Prevention Announced

Specificiers can now undertake a RIBA-approved CPD called ‘The Use of Glazed Screens to Control the Spread of Smoke & Fire in Buildings’.

The course, which is run by is Aluprof UK and available on request from the RIBA CPD website, will offer guidance on the correct specification and installation of high performance fire screens.

The 45-minute CPD also explains how aluminium fire screen systems can match with standard systems in both colour and sight lines to ensure a strong aesthetic effect on the building facade.

Led by Aluprof technical staff the CPD is available to specifiers across the UK.

With the UK head office and distribution base in Altrincham, Cheshire, Aluprof specified projects are designed, fabricated and installed by selected, specially trained companies across the UK.
