Polyfoam XPS launches flooring CPD
POLYFOAM XPS, a manufacturer of extruded polystyrene (XPS), has launched its first Continuing Professional Development (CPD) module on flooring.
Aimed at architects and specifiers, the CPD seminars will provide expert advice on the key differences between rigid insulation types for flooring and the impact these can have on a building’s thermal and load-bearing performance.
The training includes guidance on which insulation should be specified for different ground floor constructions, including those required for refurbishment projects and involving vehicular traffic.
Rob Firman, technical and specification manager of Polyfoam XPS said: ‘The launch of our CPD programme follows our own research, which revealed several misconceptions about flooring insulation. The performance characteristics of insulation products vary considerably, so it’s important to make the right choice.
‘Having a greater understanding and knowledge of these characteristics, can help reduce risks onsite and ensure ground floor constructions perform as expected.’
Led by Rob Firman, the Polyfoam XPS CPD is accredited by the CPD Certification Service. Seminars are free of charge and will last for one hour at locations to suit.
