Focusing on Fire Safety with CPD from GEZE UK

  • 2 Nov 2021

GEZE UK revises a piece of lifesaving learning. The popular RIBA-approved CPD Specifying, Installing and Maintaining Ironmongery for Fire Doors has undergone a complete update. It now includes new visuals and updates to regulations all in GEZE’s new branding.    

The CPD 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 incorporates the latest statistics for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This includes the number of people that die from smoke inhalation every year. 

It is intended for Chartered members of RIBA but is also suitable for facilities managers, property managers and architectural ironmongers and completely updates the previous version.

Offering architects and specifiers invaluable advice and guidance, which contributes to their continuing professional development, this updated training seminar gives a better understanding of the standards and regulations surrounding fire doors to ensure fire safety is paramount. 

What does it cover?

The 40 minute seminar covers all the relevant standards and regulations and is included in RIBA’s core curriculum: Design, Construction and Technology and Health, Safety and Wellbeing for the General Awareness knowledge level.

It is presentable in person or virtually via a variety of online platforms and at a time to suit. It is usually lunchtime, but breakfast seminars or afternoon sessions are accommodatable.

‘Save people’s lives’

Richard Richardson-Derry, National Specification Manager, comments: “More people die from smoke inhalation than fire itself, especially when smoke can travel freely through a building. This seminar explains how important fire doors are and how they can save lives. 

“Understanding the effectiveness of fire doors could ultimately save people’s lives.”

RIBA Chartered Architects have an obligation to undertake a minimum of 35 hours a week to maintain their competence.

Other presentation offerings by GEZE UK include EN 16005 – Safeguarding Pedestrians from Accidents at Power Operated Doorsets; Designing Effective Natural Heat and Smoke Ventilation, and Removing Barriers to Access.
