“In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others.” – Deuteronomy Rabbah
This year, we are working on building a ‘technical hub’ for our website where we can share our technical knowledge with you. We are incredibly lucky to have some serious technical whizz’s on our team, as well as lots of lovely contacts in the industry, who are all too happy to lend us a technical hand when we need a little extra help on specific products or areas beyond our own range of knowledge. It has always been our aim to impart this knowledge to our customers, website visitors and newsletter subscribers, and we are now in a position to be able to start putting this into practice. Regular customers of ours will know that we have always been there to help with technical queries over the phone, but it’s great to finally be able to get some things down in writing, which can be shared with a wider audience.
This month, I have been writing an article all about acoustics and sound control in buildings – now, as much as I have picked up some basic knowledge of this area in my time here, I couldn’t, in all honesty, say that I have the technical knowledge to confidently pass on, so luckily I had some help from two experts in the field, Thomas Snaylam, Area Sales Executive for CMS Danskin and Graham Lyon, Technical Manager at Thermal Economics.
As a thank you for their time, I felt it was only right to give a shout out to these companies, and give a little bit more information about them for this month’s blog post.
