CPD offers advice on building services insulation standard

Rockwool CPD

ROCKWOOL has launched ‘Introduction to BS 5422’, a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) module to support specifiers and engineers with advice on how to plan and implement the insulation of building services systems following a recent update to the standard. The CPD coincides with the recent publication of ROCKWOOL’s Guide to BS 5422:2023.

BS 5422 provides a method for specifying the thermal insulating materials needed on pipes, tanks, vessels, ductwork and equipment for certain defined applications and conditions within the temperature range – 40°C to +700°C in domestic, non-domestic and commercial buildings. The standard supports Approved Document L as the reference point to determine the minimum thickness of insulation required to limit heat losses and gains from building services.

ROCKWOOL’s CPD module explores the factors that must be considered when deciding on the insulation of building services systems according to BS 5422. It demonstrates how the standard aims to improve the living and working environment of the building as well as making it safer and more energy efficient.

Will Wigfield, Product Manager – Fire Protection & HVAC at ROCKWOOL UK, said: “The CPD will explain how the standard makes it easier for specifiers to choose the most appropriate material for each project and allow them to exceed the minimum requirements if they wish.”
