Stelrad now offer RIBA accredited CPD training on the latest radiator developments both online or via architects and building design offices – follow this link for details.
Leading radiator manufacturer now offer online RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) accredited CPD (Continuing Professional Development) training.
Stelrad offers two CPD programmes online in response from people that either live in less accessible locations or who prefer to take their CPD courses at a time that suits them
Learn about the latest developments in radiators, with a CPD training session led by a fully qualified specialist from Stelrad.
Stelrad provide both programmes online with the necessary questions at the end of the programme to enable RIBA members to claim their CPD points after taking the courses.
The initial CPD seminar on offer to architects is based on explaining the technical differences between serial and parallel feed radiators and highlights how new serial feed technology helps reduce fuel costs and a property’s carbon footprint.
The seminar takes attendees through the basics of radiator technology, explaining the mix of radiant and convection heat generated by them and highlighting the basis on which current radiators operate, using parallel feed technology which sees both front and back panels of a radiator heating up at the same time.
The seminar progresses into the concept of serial feed technology that is used in the new Stelrad Radical radiator range. This highlights how the Radical radiator from Stelrad sees the front panel heat up first and quickest and through the inclusion of factory fitted thermostatic valve controls, the heated water is allowed into the back panel only when a pre-determined temperature has been reached.
The seminar explains how vitally, the serial feed radiator has a measurably positive effect on the boiler as well. Because the water leaving the radiator is cooler than from a traditional parallel feed radiator, a condensing boiler will actually condense more efficiently, ensuring the maximum energy efficiency from the boiler as well.
The overall measurable effects of using a serial feed radiator has been independently assessed by KIWA as a 10.5% energy saving which is impressive by any standards.
Stelrad’s second CPD seminar highlights information about Low Surface Temperature (LST) radiators. These radiators have been devised for use in buildings where the young, the elderly or the vulnerable may live, work or visit – and where burns from the potential surface temperature of a radiator – which can often be up to 70°C – may cause damage to people.
The seminar covers how to avoid this damaging effect and comply with legislation relating to these products and how to provide guidance on the use of Low Surface Temperature steel panel radiators for space heating with reference to:
It’s also to raise awareness of LST’s for safe space heating in healthcare, schools, and other public buildings.
