New airtightness seminar

A free seminar for architects and designers on airtightness in construction sealing joints and improvement options, is now available from ISO-Chemie.

The move 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.

Delivered onsite within the practice and contributing towards formal CPD training, the one-hour long programme covers advice on effective window installation techniques, and how to identify and rectify air leakage.

The seminar also covers ISO Chemie’s ISO-TOP Winframer thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system for the rapid installation of windows, which has been fire rated to E30.

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 air-tight 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 solutions 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. It enables installers to easily seal windows from inside the building, avoiding the need to use time-consuming and costly external access systems like scaffolding and ladders.
