SFS intec has enhanced its RIBA-approved CPD seminar on fixing systems for glass after its first six successful months in the field to ensure it comprehensively addresses the changing architectural glazing requirements of architects, contractors and metal fabricators.

In addition to extending the content of the seminar, which offers a vital technical insight into reliable fixing systems for architectural / bolted glass assemblies and is delivered by SFS intec at architects’ own offices, the company has also restructured its glass fixings team to deliver the seminars.

Robin Szymura, who has over 30 years of technical and sales experience within the building products industry, is now providing support for customers in the southern part of the UK. Customers in the north, Scotland and Northern Ireland are now being supported by Neil Ackroyd who, like Robin, has more than three decades of technical experience to advise on the right solutions for all types of exterior and interior structural glazing features, including glass canopies.

Qualifying for CPD points and 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.

Robin and Neil will continue to be supported by SFS intec’s specialist glass fixings division based in Switzerland.

“With the growing popularity of glass in contemporary architecture, we have a range of solutions and the technical know-how to help bring the most striking designs to reality,” says Neil.

“Our CPD presentation, which Robin and Neil will be delivering, offers an insight into the many issues which must be addressed when specifying a fixing system for glass. These include considerations for wind loadings for façades , snow loadings for glass canopies and point fixed loads. This information is valuable in determining the right specification for both the fixing system and glass.”

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.
