Construction industry updates from SFS’s podcasts

SFS UK, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of carbon and stainless-steel fastening solutions for roofing, cladding and façade systems, has been offering support and advice to specifiers within the construction industry for more than 120 years. Today, this support includes a series of informative podcasts.

There is a series of three podcasts focusing on fall protection and subframes, each lasting around 30 minutes, discussing fragile roof design trends, the effects of thicker insulation in rainscreen cladding subframe systems and the effect of rainscreen subframe systems on the overall performance of external walls.  The podcasts address industry regulations and best practice in installation; they are designed for everyone in the construction industry.

Also on offer is SFS PocketTalks, a range of shorter podcast episodes addressing the latest construction practices.

With four episodes in the series at around five minutes each, PocketTalks discuss u-values, the challenges created by a lack of testing standards for permanently attached fall systems, the implications of the UK Cabinet Office’s Construction Playbook and consider the impact of thermal bridging on rainscreen subframes.
