Energy Efficient and Fire-Resistant Glazing

10am-1pm on 4th October 2016

Getting the glazing right is an important element in most projects. RSUA has organised this seminar in partnership with the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) to enhance architects’ and specifiers’ understanding of the impact glass has on the energy efficiency of a building and to provide advice on how best to achieve the outcome sought for any particular project. The seminar will also address the importance of specifying the correct fire-resistant glazing systems. *Online booking now available*
