Abloy’s new compliance course receives RIBA accreditation

  • 27 Oct 2020

Abloy UK has added another course to its comprehensive Academy – Electric Locking for Fire and Escape Doors.

The CPD is designed to provide a greater understanding of the different types of access control systems, explaining their basic requirements and the considerations of fire safety.

RIBA approved the course for giving participants the required understanding of fire and escape door safety standards. The one-hour seminar includes building regulations, legislation and ‘best practice’ standards in electric locking options and access control fundamentals.

Knowledge of escape locking for fire and escape doors will provide value to many professions, from architects, system integrators, access control installers, facilities managers and owners of commercial buildings.

Traditional requirements for Escape and Panic doors (BS EN 179 for Emergency Escape Hardware and BS EN 1125 for Panic Escape Hardware) are a key focus of the course.

It also explores BS EN 13637, the standard for Electrically Controlled Escape doors which came into effect in 2015.

Attendees will also be shown how electric locks can be used to help create Dynamic Lockdown if needed. This considers the specification and different Electric Locking solutions needed depending on the type of risk relevant to the commercial building. 

Pat Jeffries, Commercial Director at Abloy UK, commented: “It’s fantastic to be recognised as a RIBA accredited course, that enforces the importance of continual professional development within our industry.

“As the presenter of this course, I’m also a strong advocate in educating the importance of the correct specification for fire and escape doors. BS EN 179, BS EN 1125 and BS EN 13637 are all essential standards in ensuring the reliability and effectiveness of escapes to help save lives in emergencies.

“The course provides vital information in keeping the highest level of safety and provides new perspectives for professionals when choosing an access control system.”
