Council for Aluminium in Building

CAB Aluminium in Building Conference & Exhibition – 16 May 2018

The 13th Annual CAB Technical Conference & Exhibition ‘The Facade as Protection against Fire and Flanking Acoustics’ offers key topical presentations by leading industry experts as well as the opportunity for CAB members to exhibit.

Dame Judith Hackitt’s interim report as part of the Independent Review of Building Regulations found that the whole system of fire safety regulation regarding complex and high-rise buildings was “not fit for purpose”, and left room for those who wanted to take shortcuts to do so. A programme of change is needed to safeguard our built environment.

The first theme for CAB’s conference this year looks at the issues facing our industry, particularly considering this on-going review of regulations. During the panel discussion, delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions, and we will also provide an update on the related activities underway in this area.

Our second theme is flanking acoustics in curtain walling. As more curtain walling systems are used in high-rise living accommodation, how do you protect against flanking acoustics from one apartment to another? Can simple design changes make a big difference to performance? How do you test systems for their flanking acoustic performance and what impact does the installation have?
