The CPD seminar – ‘what to consider when specifying fibre bonded carpets’ – is included on RIBA’s core curriculum under Design, Construction and Technology, with a General Awareness knowledge level.

It will provide participants with the necessary information and essential regulatory requirements for correctly specifying and installing fibre bonded contract flooring.

Each session will cover the key factors that should be taken into consideration when specifying the right commercial carpet for a specific environment. This includes how fibre bonded carpets meet contract flooring requirements, the differences between sheet products, carpet tiles and carpet planks and their installation and maintenance.

In addition, participants will also gain a better understanding of the manufacturing processes, how to identify whether a fibre bonded product is fit for purpose, and how floorcoverings can meet health, safety and environmental standards.

“Our new CPD seminar is designed to help specifiers to gain an even better understanding of fibre bonded floorcoverings," says Bob Mortimer, national sales manager for Heckmondwike. "In addition, it will showcase how this type of carpet offers performance and aesthetic benefits for a wide range of commercial and education settings. We’re confident that the sessions will be of great value to everyone that attends.”
