Airtightness seminars

Free seminars on airtightness in construction sealing joints and improvement options for architects and other design and construction specifiers will be available from ISO-Chemie throughout 2020.

The initiative advances architectural knowledge and understanding of airtightness and related issues, enabling specifiers to improve the design and construction of buildings and boost their technical and product expertise, the company said.

Delivered onsite within the practice and contributing towards formal CPD training, the programme covers advice on effective window installation techniques, and how to identify and rectify air leakage. It also covers products to improve thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system for the rapid installation of windows, which have been fire rated to E30.

Products such as ISO-TOP Winframer can protect the entire window area from fire for a minimum of 30 minutes, guaranteeing the retention of structural integrity, as well as supporting at least 200kg/m and providing an airtight cavity support.

Guidance on the latest airtightness products and sealing solutions is also covered in the seminar, which includes details of ISO-Chemie’s range of gap sealing products ISO-Bloco Win2Wall and Bloco-ONE.

Up to 70% cost savings can be achieved when using the ISO-Bloco ONE foam tape for high performance window sealing, rather than the current three component systems, the company said. It allows windows to be easily installed from inside the building, avoiding the need to use external access systems.
