Coved Skirting CPD Seminar


NGS GBE CPD Gemini Invite 121014 png

Since 2008 a problem has been developing in resilient flooring edge details that has gone incorrectly diagnosed for too long and putting it right is extremely expensive and disruptive to the building users.

PVC coved skirting & capping in hygienic areas and wet rooms are failing.

Creating places for bacteria to grow unnoticed or for water to escape into the building fabric to do its worse. 

But the blame for the fault has not been diagnosed but wrongly assigned to installers, adhesives, cleaning materials and cleaning equipment, or the existence of the fault has been hushed up

In 2013 after a great deal of expensive testing, analysis; material and product development a simple solution to avoid the problem was created and launched.

Readymade robust specifications for competent installation were created to support the launch of this system. 

In 2014 a solution is now also available for failed skirting.

To void deleterious materials in your project and to protect your PI Insurance with a fully warranted system; a CPD seminar is now available.

This CPD seminar is made possible with the support of

Gemini Adhesives Ltd. the inventor of the solutions described.

We are pleased to offer CPD seminars to Architectural Practices on this building defect and the solutions; at the same time introduce the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulations and Substitution Portal (SUBSPORT) and other initiatives around REACH to improve the chemical ingredients of materials like PVC and adhesives and create better healthier environments for us all.


Please contact Brian Murphy BrianSpecMan@aol.com or 01733 238148

To book an in-house CPD seminar including video clips and USB stick with all the files you need to understand and specify the solution safely.
