Selectaglaze launches new version of its RIBA-approved CPD
’Understanding and specifying secondary glazing’ CPD
The secondary glazing specialist has produced a completely new version of its ’Understanding and specifying secondary glazing’ CPD.
Secondary glazing can be used to
- enhanced window acoustics
- improve thermal performance
- raise security levels
- particularly suited to Heritage buildings
The CPD aims to assist designers in specifying secondary glazing that meets required performance levels while being aesthetically pleasing and integrating sympathetically with other building elements.
It offers guidance on standards for noise insulation, conserving energy and security and deals with a full range of design issues.
Small product samples are made available and detailed seminar notes provided to all participants.
The company has also produced a comprehensive range of support literature which is available free upon request or can be viewed and downloaded from their on-line library (see link above).

Selectaglaze’s specialist secondary glazing system, designed to be sympathetic to the existing windows, helped provide a quiet and secure environment when installed at student accommodation at Camberwell Campus for University of Arts London. The development also achieved a BREEAM very good rating whereas existing single glazed sash windows would have prevented this level of performance.
The new Selectaglaze ’Secondary Glazing – Protecting Your Environment’ brochure covers physical attack, blast protection, ballistic attack, fire resistance and security.
A new networking and CPD event has been organised by Selectaglaze looking at the specification of secondary glazing. The event takes place at The Building Centre on 1 May 2013.
Selectaglaze invite architects, specifiers and designers to the new version of ’Understanding and Specifying Secondary Glazing’ RIBA Approved CPD, to be held at The Building Centre.
Leading designer of secondary glazing systems has reissued guidance literature on Energy Saving for period buildings with single glazed windows.
