Siderise announces the launch of the first in the series of its new Technical Deep Dives. These are short, free e-learning modules that set out to help construction professionals get to grips with key areas of passive fire protection and noise control in the built environment.
Edition 1 explores the challenges imposed upon perimeter firestops resulting from curtain wall façade and building movement, and the consequential performance requirements for providing effective compartmentation. This includes examining the test standards to look out for when specifying these products.
With bi-monthly releases, these Technical Deep Dives break down key application issues in an easy-to-understand and visual way.
They will help share the knowledge, experience and insights of the manufacturer’s Technical Experts who have experience of all kinds of projects all over the world, helping designers and contractors to understand how they can deliver best practice passive fire safety and noise control.
