REHAU has launched a new CPD course, designed for professionals seeking to learn more about the specification and installation of acoustic soil and waste pipework solutions.
Fully accredited by CIBSE, the new course introduces best practice in the design and specification of soil and waste pipe systems to guarantee quieter installations.
Acoustic pipework is particularly important in multioccupancy buildings, such as residential accommodation, care homes and hospitals, where noisy pipework can have a hugely negative effect on those in the building.
The course commences with the fundamentals of acoustics, explaining noise transfer and pollution, before covering design considerations and standards.
In this section, attendees on the course find out more about the requirements for acoustic pipework in the Building Regulations, the market expectations for noise pollution in different settings and how acoustic pipes are tested.
The CPD course briefly looks at fire safety considerations and BIM Level 2, before going on to share practical guidance about which pipe materials and joints perform better acoustically and how to achieve more successful installations.
REHAU is well placed to advise course attendees on acoustic pipework installations, with the company having manufactured acoustic soil and waste pipes for more than 20 years, supplying it in 37 countries.
Earlier this year, REHAU launched its RAUPIANO acoustic pipework solution to the UK market.
Drew Clough, from REHAU, commented: “Since we introduced the RAUPIANO system to the UK, we’ve had a lot of interest from industry professionals who want to know whether it’s right for their projects and how to design and install it.
“We’ve pulled all that information together in one CIBSE-accredited course to answer those questions and provide the necessary technical information to inform the specification process.
“It’s absolutely free to attend, and in our opinion, it’s a must for anyone involved in the design and installation of soil and waste pipes, particularly in multi-occupancy buildings.”
