GEZE UK has revised a piece of lifesaving learning - its popular RIBA-approved CPD on specifying, installing and maintaining ironmongery for fire doors.
The 40-minute seminar explains what fire doors are, identifies their various components, how they work, the standards and regulations which surround them and why smoke is so dangerous.
It is intended for Chartered members of RIBA but is also suitable for facilities managers, property managers and architectural ironmongers and completely updates the 2016 version.
It incorporates the latest statistics for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, including the number of people that die from smoke inhalation every year. It also highlights the latest regulations.
Andy Howland, sales and marketing director for GEZE UK said:
"This is an essential development module because fire doors can save lives. More people die from smoke inhalation than fire itself, especially when smoke can travel freely through a building.
“Understanding the effectiveness of fire doors, where they can be placed and how they should be maintained, could ultimately save people’s lives.”
CPD presentations can be arranged at architects’ practices at a time to suit (usually lunchtime but breakfast seminars or afternoon sessions can be accommodated). To find out more or to book a CPD seminar, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.geze.co.uk/geze/cpd.
RIBA Chartered Architects are obliged to undertake a minimum of 35 hours a week to maintain their competence: www.ribacpd.com
The revised CPD fits into the core curriculum subjects of: Design, Construction and Technology and Health, Safety and Wellbeing for the General Awareness knowledge level.
Other presentations offered by GEZE UK, include EN 16005 - Safeguarding Pedestrians from Accidents at Power Operated Doorsets; Glass Door Assemblies - Selection and Specification; Designing Effective Natural Heat and Smoke Ventilation and Removing Barriers to Access and Air Pollution.
