Date TBC. Movement Joints and Uncoupling Membranes
This seminar aims to provide you with information and knowledge on the stresses from drying shrinkage, deflection and moisture movement in the substrate, as well as thermal and moisture changes that affect… the tile finish. It highlights how these can be solved through specifying appropriate movements joints and modern uncoupling membranes. It’s intended that by the end of the seminar, you’ll have gained knowledge and confidence in specifying appropriate movement joints and uncoupling membranes to counteract these stresses and prevent future problems such as failed sealed connections, cracked tiles and joints etc.

Date TBC. Modular Screed Technology with Underfloor Heating
This seminar aims to provide you with information and knowledge on modern modular screed systems and electrical membrane systems for underfloor heating installations with a tiled floor finish. We examine… the potential problems associated with traditional underfloor heating systems and explain how the modern systems tackle these problems. We look into how the technology of underfloor heating has moved forward and give advice on how to specify modern problem-free, efficient and quick to install systems for future projects.

Date TBC. Balcony and Terrace Solutions for Tile and Stone Coverings
This seminar provides solutions to common problems and failures in balconies, roof terraces and patio areas. It looks at causes of collapse including inappropriate construction, inadequate waterproofing… and blocked drains. It provides guidance on these issues and will enable you to specify appropriate system solutions with confidence.
