Correct specifying for heavy traffic tiling

The BAL CPD Seminar, ‘Specifying tiling in heavily trafficked areas,’ gives architects confidence in specifying for any tiling project where traffic levels mandate high durability. It is fully approved for CPD by RIBA and can be booked at

The 45-minute seminar covers such topics as anticipation of substrate movements and the effect of project time constraints. Architects see clear illustration of the differing factors in a range of applications, from shopping malls to railway stations. The seminar shows the need for detail in tiling work specifications, provides guidance on relevant codes of practice and advises on design and specification considerations. It uses examples from such real projects to factory stairways to show how to achieve long-term goals, ranging from safety in use to aesthetic performance.

‘Specifying tiling in heavily trafficked areas’ is one of four RIBA-accredited CPD Seminars created by for architects by BAL. Others address leisure sector tiling, problem solving and the use of natural stone. Although each has been created specifically for architects, they are all highly relevant for designers, contractors and other specifiers.
