Weber’s latest introduction is the new easy-to-use WeberSpec online tool that allows architects and specifiers to create up-to-date and technically accurate tiling specifications at www.weberspec.co.uk. In a simple registration procedure an account can be opened and accessed by email and password. A project brief is required with prompts to enter specific fields such as: the surface to be tiled; the substrate; type and area of tiling; finish and movement joints. A full M40 specification to NBS standards is automatically generated, including all necessary components and ancillaries. The M40 specification is saved in the account which can be accessed at a later date or amended if necessary. This specification is supported by British Standard BS 5385, the recognised Code of Practice for wall and floor tiling.
“WeberSpec is a completely free M40 specification tool constructed on an easy-to-use platform, but when advice is required our technical team is on hand,” says Tracey Dempster, head of marketing at Saint-Gobain Weber. “And, to support WeberSpec, we have also introduced a new RIBA-assessed CPD: Floor Tiling onto Calcium Sulphate Screeds. This is a subject frequently raised by architects, contractors and applicators with our technical team.”
The main learning aim of the new CPD is to assist in the design and specification process. By identifying potential problems and how to avoid them, specifiers will learn to understand the key considerations when detailing tiling work on anhydrite screeds and meeting industry standards. This 30 minute CPD can be presented by Saint-Gobain Weber’s specification team either on site or at a client’s office, and has been designed for individuals and small groups.
“We pride ourselves in providing full technical advice and application support, helping customers and clients to specify the right solution for every project,” continues Dempster. “As a global business, Saint-Gobain is totally committed to training through in-house programmes and at Technical Academies across the UK and Ireland to ensure correct specification and application every time.”
For more information, or for technical support, please contact Saint-Gobain Weber on 08703 330 070 to book a CPD, or visit www.weberspec.co.uk to generate your Weber specification.
