New specifiers guide - Partitioning

Specifying partitioning seems, on the face of it, simple enough: consider the look, performance and cost, and there it is. If only it were that simple there would not be cases where inappropriate glass was used in guarding, or the partition wasn’t performing acoustically because the flanking paths hadn’t been addressed.

We've launched our new Specifiers Guide to Drylining

The guide includes top tips when specifying drylining, as well as reference material to regulations for safety, fire performance and standards.
