Course/Presentation Summary ...
Wire Support Solutions – The Alternative to Threaded Rod
This presentation will provide specifiers and installers with the information necessary to make the change, from a position of confidence and knowledge, to the use of wire rope suspension solutions in place of threaded rod. It details the technical, commercial and environmental benefits that are available by making the change.
Zinc Whiskers – Awareness, Understanding and Dealing with the Problem
This presentation explains what a zinc whisker is, how it is formed and at what point it becomes a threat to systems. With the security of information being of paramount importance, it is crucial to have the knowledge to be able to make considered judgements on how to reduce or eliminate the potential threat posed by zinc whiskers. This presentation addresses the material selection process and looks at the solutions available to reduce or eliminate the threat, the key question is at what cost?
The Environmental Benefits of Wire Rope Suspension Solutions
This presentation looks at how thoughtful and considerate specification and design can have significant benefits to the first-fix installation. The content outlines how by working with the standards and within manufacturers guidelines, weight, number of components and CO2 emissions can all be reduced. Simple cost-effective measures which, if applied globally, will provide enormous benefits.
Reducing Prime Costs of Services Suspension Installations
This presentation looks at a number of ways of reducing both labour and material content to reduce the prime cost. It explains how, by using the standards DW144 and IEC 61537, in conjunction with manufacturers published loading information, significant savings can be made. Using this information and applying it in-line with innovative designs and component technology will add further to the savings available.
Material Finishes of Services Containment Solutions
This presentation looks at the various materials from which containment (cable management systems) are produced. We identify the correct material for the environment that it is being installed in. Understanding the galvanising process, rates of degradation, and the sacrificial process that is galvanising, will provide information and understanding on aesthetic and practical solutions. Incorrect specification of material can result in over-specified solutions and increased costs, whilst under-specification too will incur associate costs.
Cable Management Systems
This presentation looks at the different forms of cable management solutions available. How and where they are used, and the materials that they are manufactured from. The content looks at some of the common misconceptions around cable management and how the “cut and paste” approach to design and installation can mean that technical, commercial and environmental benefits are not being maximised.
