Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, we are no longer presenting physical CPDs. The good news is, that instead we are offering Virtual CPD presentations. All our CPDs will be availble virtually.
CPD Presentations based on a wealth of knowledge obtained through years of experience:
CPD: Creating Balconies Rigid, Ready & Right – 1hr
With the absence of a balcony specific standard, yet a host of different organizations stipulating a range of requirements, balcony design has often been a minefield. We have extensively explored the thousands of pages of regulations, and add our findings from expansive testing to bring to you a clear understandable presentation in which we explore the requirements that need to be met as well as innovative solutions.
Our CPD presentations include videos of real-life processes, 2D and 3D technical diagrams, tables and extensive professional photos in order to allow attendees to easily digest the wealth of balcony design expertise and understand how they can be applied on their relevant projects.
We aim to explore, educate and inspire balcony design so that we can make a difference to all attendees.
CPD: Balcony Fires: Learn from the past, an approach to the future – 30min
Fire CPD that purely looks at current case studies of a few recent fires that have happened this year, explores common causes and how these can be designed out. It also gives clarity on the current fire regulations and our active product development. These solutions are above what is currently required but will give advice on what regulations we feel balconies will likely need to meet in the future.
CPD: Balconies: From Fires, To ‘The Ban’ & Beyond – 45min
This is the newest of our CPD presentations which captures all the wealth of knowledge from what we have researched into balcony fires. This captures the key balcony fires that have occurred since the Grenfell disaster and the extensive regulation and advice that has been issued and continues to change. We bring our research to you in a comprehendible CPD that takes you on a journey through the numerous balcony fires that occurred in the past 3 years, the history of balconies, laminate glass and the combustible cladding ban. We then look into the future to see what action each individual can take in the industry to reduce the fire risk and improve balcony design.
This is not intended to give you product knowledge but rather explore the journey of recent balcony fires and relevant regulation. If you would like a product design CPD we recommend the Balcony Design CPD mentioned above.

Thanks again for organising the CPD and giving up your time to provide us with the opportunity to learn more about your balcony products/ services. The presentation was packed with useful and very interesting information.

I found this very interesting, and great to see the proactive approach, from Sapphire Balconies, to this issue over the past few years, and the steps being taking to recommend new products to mitigate this happening again.
