ROCKWOOL has launched a new CPD (Continuing Professional Development) module to help roofing contractors and specifiers mitigate fire risk in flat roofs.
The new module has been developed by the stone wool insulation manufacturer to enhance industry understanding following regulation changes and provide guidance on determining relevant non-combustible classifications in flat roofing systems.
The ‘Fifth Façade’ CPD explores the role of the roof in the spread of fire and the potential risks when non-combustible roof insulation is not carefully considered, especially for multi-purpose flat roofs. The learning module advises on current standards including BS EN 13501-5 BROOF (t4) and how to futureproof current designs to meet future policy, and give greater protection to buildings and their users now.
The CPD also outlines ROCKWOOL’s range of fire-resistant stone wool insulation products that are compatible with a variety of modern flat roof systems.
