IMG_7481 [Edit]Schlüter-Systems Ltd is pleased to announce the arrival of a brand-new RIBA Approved CPD, which offers an overview of the various factors to bear in mind when specifying tile and stone.

Developed following feedback from Schlüter’s specification experts as to the needs of their architects in the field, ‘Considerations for Tile and Stone Installations’ delivers key insight for those who are new to working with these popular materials, or who would like to update their knowledge base.

Topics covered include:

  • The differences involved in specifying for wet vs. dry areas and walls vs. floors
  • Classifications and ratings for tile and stone coverings, substrate preparation etc
  • Why and how to specify tile fixing in conformance with British Standards
  • How to prevent problems by specifying the correct support beneath the surface
  • What to consider in setting an appropriate cleaning and maintenance schedule

With tile and stone being used across many areas – from bathrooms and kitchens, to foyers, balconies and more – the information shared in the new CPD forms the foundation of a valuable bank of knowledge for architects and specifiers. In-line with RIBA requirements, running time for the CPD is just 45 – 60 minutes, and the seminar is delivered at architects’ and specifiers’ offices at their offices and convenience.
