Russwood offer accredited CPD training in External Timber Cladding and Cladding Fire Performance. Our CPDs - which can be delivered virtually or in person - enable architects and specifiers to enhance their timber knowledge and expertise, keep skills up-to-date and assist in making the most informed choice of timber products. CPDs are accredited by the CPD Certification Service.
External Timber Cladding CPD
Learn about Russwood’s products and processes in our External Timber Cladding CPD. We’ll focus on the characteristics and best uses of our naturally durable timber species – SILA Select®, Scotlarch® and VG SILA – as well as modified timbers Thermopine® and Accoya®. The seminar covers a range of topics including natural weathering, SiOO:X and other coatings, fixing and battening systems, fire rated cladding, specification and detailing advice. Questions are encouraged throughout.
Cladding Fire Performance CPD
Appropriate fire performance should be considered for all components used in any construction. Russwood’s Cladding Fire Performance CPD offers an overview of topics relating to timber cladding fire performance to assist architects. The seminar covers reaction to fire vs fire resistance, Euroclasses, Certification Without Further Testing (CWFT), cavity barriers, Russwood Battening System, fire-retardant treatment, certified profiles and certification documentation.
Russwood’s cladding CPD’s are delivered by Architectural Liaison Technician, Roxana Cercelaru. Having studied Architecture at Mackintosh School of Architecture, before switching to an Architectural Technician course, Roxana has an excellent understanding of both the technical and design aspects of architecture. Roxana’s role at Russwood involves liaising with architects to help them specify the appropriate timber cladding, decking and fixings for their project as well as delivering our CPDs.
