Second training centre opens in Wiltshire

HD Sharman Ltd. Training Room


As part of our commitment to continual improvement of contractor development, we’re pleased to announce the opening of our second training centre.

Gutter lining system specialist HD Sharman has formally unveiled a training centre for the benefit of contractors.

The new Wiltshire-based facility has been built to support contractors with the training they need to become registered Approved Contractors who can meet the demands and requirements of gutter refurbishment in the industrial and commercial sectors.

Sharmans has 12 Golden Rules for installation and understanding these rules is critical to support the Plygene Gutterline system guarantee and permanently prevent leaks.

Following the launch of their first centre in Chapel-en-le-Frith last September, it includes life-sized rigs for hands-on practical experience.

The popularity of training courses at both locations has been phenomenal, as contractors commit to becoming part of our Approved Contractor Network.



The training programmes conducted at both Wiltshire and Derbyshire cover numerous aspects of installer training, including:

  • A full review of system components
  • Hands-on practical fitting skills using purpose-built demo rigs
  • Hot air welding techniques for bespoke moulded components
  • 12 Golden Rules for installation
  • Standard and bespoke system fitting options
  • Site inspection and certification to secure the 25 year guarantee
  • Surveying guidelines covering all areas of gutter complexity
  • Introduction to online support materials created specifically for contractors
  • How to attain Approved Contractor status, enabling installers to offer customers the BBA approved, 25 year system guarantee


The training programme has been designed to deliver an inclusive and practical professional experience so that contractors understand how to achieve permanent leak prevention with our system.

Feedback by Approved Contractors includes:

‘Good to get hands-on experience…’, ‘…I understand the importance of the 12 Golden Rules and the 25 year Guarantee’ and ‘…the best course I’ve ever been on’.

To achieve Approved Contractor status, book your place on our in-demand programmes at the location most convenient to you.
