New CPD seminar offers clear view on glass fixing systems

A new RIBA-approved CPD seminar from SFS intec is now available to architects and designers which offers a vital technical insight into reliable fixing systems for architectural / bolted glass assemblies.

The seminar is presented by SFS intec’s fully trained technical advisors at architects’ own offices and duly qualifies for CPD points. Being RIBA-approved, architects have the assurance that the information contained in the presentation is of a technical nature and designed to enhance their understanding of the main issues surrounding the fixing of glass.

Glen Wainwright, who heads the glass fixing systems team at SFS intec says, “We devised the CPD seminar primarily to help architects and architectural technicians get up to speed with how best to fix glass assemblies and achieve the most safe and secure installations.

“There are many issues which must be addressed when specifying a fixing system for glass, including wind loadings for façades , snow loadings for glass canopies and point fixed loads. With continuous improvements being made to the design of fixing systems, we wanted to ensure architects have the opportunity to find out about current best practice in order to make the right specification choices.”

SFS intec is Europe’s largest manufacturer of high performance fastening systems, including architectural glazing. Its range of frameless glass fixing products includes raised, bevel and flush point fixings which can be combined with its spider fixings, and special solutions for balustrades, canopies and cold facades.
