Saint-Gobain Weber introduces WeberSpec and new RIBA approved tile fixing CPD

Saint-Gobain Weber manufactures a comprehensive range of high quality products for professional tile fixers and applicators and is recognised for bringing innovative, high performance technologies to the market. This includes Low Dust Technology™, the proven formulation that significantly reduces airborne dust created during the pouring and mixing processes, and ECO SMART™ Cement Replacement Technology demonstrating Weber’s commitment to sustainability.

Weber’s latest introduction is the new WeberSpec online tool that allows architects and specifiers to quickly and easily create concise, technically accurate and up-to-date specifications for tiling at In a simple registration procedure an account can be opened and accessed by email and password. A project brief is required with prompts to enter specific fields such as: the surface to be tiled; the substrate; type and area of tiling; finish and movement joints. A full M40 specification to NBS standards is automatically generated, including all necessary components and ancillaries. The M40 specification is saved in the account which can be accessed at a later date or amended if necessary. This specification is supported by British Standard BS 5385, the recognised Code of Practice for wall and floor tiling.

“WeberSpec is a completely free M40 specification tool constructed on an easy-to-use platform, but when advice is required our technical team is on hand,” says Tracey Dempster, head of marketing, Saint-Gobain Weber. “And, to support WeberSpec, we have also introduced a new RIBA-Assessed CPD: Floor Tiling onto Calcium Sulphate Screeds. This is a subject frequently raised by architects, contractors and applicators with our technical team.”

The main learning aim of the new CPD is to assist in the design and specification process. By identifying potential problems and how to avoid them, specifiers will learn to understand the key considerations when detailing tiling work on anhydrite screeds and meeting industry standards. This 30 minute CPD can be presented by Saint-Gobain Weber’s specification team either on site or at a clients’ office, and has been designed for individuals and small groups.

“We pride ourselves in providing full technical advice and application support, helping customers and clients to specify the right solution for every project,” continues Dempster. “As a global business, Saint-Gobain is totally committed to training through in-house programmes and at Technical Academies across the UK and Ireland to ensure correct specification and application every time.”

Saint-Gobain Weber provides a 10 year materials guarantee on all tile adhesives and grouts which are manufactured under the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2000.

For more information, or for technical support, please contact Saint-Gobain Weber by phone to book a CPD, or visit the website to generate your Weber specification.
