GEZE UK has revised a piece of lifesaving learning, in the form of its popular RIBA-approved CPD that covers specifying, installing and maintaining ironmongery for fire doors.
The 40-minute seminar looks at 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 facilities managers, property managers and architectural ironmongers will also find this complete update on the 2016 version useful.
It features the latest statistics for the whole of the United Kingdom, including the number of people that die from smoke inhalation every year, as well as highlighting the newest regulations.
Andy Howland, sales and marketing director for GEZE UK, described it as an essential development module given fire doors can save lives.
“More people die from smoke inhalation than fire itself, especially when smoke can travel freely through a building,” he said.
“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 suitable time (typically lunchtime but breakfast seminars or afternoon sessions can be accommodated).
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.
