Papergraphics RIBA CPD core curriculum support services for RIBA Architects and Designers

When you look at many commercial buildings, you will see an array of digitally printed wallcoverings and window films used for everything from décor to wayfinding. However, many of the digitally printable materials used for this purpose do not comply with commercial interior design regulations. 

Specifying digitally printable materials for creative use within hospitals, hotels, restaurants, retail developments, etc., that conform to regulations can be a minefield. Construction Product Regulations and the UK Building Regulations are commercial interior design requirements. And it is both challenging and risky to specify materials without fully understanding how to decipher product-specific fire certifications accurately.

Papergraphics CPD clarifies what to look for in product performance and conformity when choosing digitally printable materials for commercial interior design.

We help unravel the complexities of a Fire Test report and explain why you should never view a classification in isolation and need to assess the Fire Test report as a whole. 

Ultimately, the Papergraphics CPD focuses on helping you ensure that any digitally printed products you specify meet the necessary regulations and are fit for your purpose.
