Abloy UK releases new RIBA approved CPD

  • 9 Aug 2017

Abloy UK has released a new RIBA approved CPD course to inform on the aspects of electric locking for fire and/or escape door applications.

Managers of buildings are legally obliged to adhere to Fire and Escape standards when ti comes to access control.

Abloy’s CPD covers traditional requirements for escape and panic doors, for example when a door is electronically controlled for access, there must be a mechanical means of escape in the event of an emergency.

The new escape door standards define what is and what is not acceptable as an escape door solution. It explains that any door that has a fire exit requirement must be fitted with fire tested products, to ensure the route to escape is never compromised.

The CPD covers traditional requirements for escape and panic doors and ‘Dynamic Lockdown’ which enables escape for the occupants of a building and prevents unauthorised access to areas by compartmentalising zones in buildings.

It is available at the Abloy Academy but can be presented to local groups throughout the UK by arrangement. The CPD is recommended for anyone directly responsible for specifying and installing fire and escape doors or related equipment.
