"It's all about systems. A good presenter"

"I was previously unaware of the fire resistant properties certain glass could have."

“Despite the contents of the lecture overlapping quite heavily with our own expertise, Promat kept the CPD engaging and were prepared for questions which I imagine were slightly more in-depth than they usually get. Unlike most external CPD’s I have received, one of the things I enjoyed the most was how it did not feel like I was sitting in front of a salesman who was giving pitch disguised as a lecture. Overall the lecture was very well structured and delivered in an relaxed, approachable manner which encouraged questions and interaction. I would recommend this CPD to anybody working with fire rated glass and hope that Promat can deliver another one here soon.”

"I have a much clearer understanding of the different types of fire resistant glass.Thank you very much for the insightful presentation."

Architect, October 2018


"The seminar was interesting and informative and all questions answered clearly and in sufficient depth. It showed that the advances and capabilities of fire rated glass were greater than I had previously understood, but a specifier values advice on 'whole product' combinations (which the CPD seminar gave) since junction detailing, framing etc all contribute to the overall performance."
