RIBA approved CPD: GLAZING FOR THE FUTURE
To provide an update on the latest developments within the window and door industry, ensuring that buildings achieve better thermal performance, noise reduction and security.
- Better understanding of different products on the market and how they can meet and exceed building regulations now and in the future.
- Impact of high performance, triple glazed windows and doors on thermal efficiency, noise reduction and security.
- How do high performance windows and doors contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and net zero?
This training session is intended to improve product knowledge and create the desire to specify and install high performance, triple glazed windows and doors in all building projects. This can help create an energy efficient environment and to ensure that the latest building regulations are met now and in the future. The presentation will last for approx. 1 hour.
RIBA approved CPD: WINDOWS AND DOORS FOR PASSIVHAUS

- Present situation in UK (stock of old building – new building regulations)
- Heat loss from windows – Understanding the Uw. Discussing about the difference between Uw and Psi opaque as quality criteria for high performing windows.
- Main advantages of investing in a Passivhaus building/embracing Passivhaus design principles
- Thermal comfort – temperature asymmetry & temperature stratification).
- How thermal comfort requirement affects the Uw value on Passivhaus windows.
- Surface temperature factors. Hygiene criterion for windows. Risk indicator of mould growth. Another quality criterion for high quality windows.
- Main pillars of a Passivhaus
