Architects and specifiers can now access a pair of new Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) CPDs on door hardware, covering specification post-COVID and fire door installation.
The new CPDs have been created for delivery online or in person to architects via GAI members nationwide.
The ‘Ironmongery Specification in a Post-Pandemic World’ CPD outlines the different types of hardware that can be introduced into buildings to help minimise contact with surfaces without compromising the safety or security.
The presentation gives specific detail on specialist closing devices, door automation, access control and anti-microbial devices.
It also looks at ancillary products that may be used in more specific areas such as washrooms and things to be aware of when retrofitting hardware.CPD
The second CPD launched by the GAI this month is on ‘Installation of Fire Door Assemblies and Associated Ironmongery’.
This presentation is designed to improve awareness of how fire doors should be fitted to ensure they will perform in the event of a fire.
It covers all stages of the fire installation process including the door frame, door leaf, associated ironmongery, door stops, gaskets and architraves. It also focuses on compliance and best practice, giving further details on testing standards and regulations.
Both CPD presentations are RIBA-approved, so architects will receive double learning points for attending. The GAI now has 10 RIBA-approved CPDs, covering a range of issues that architects and specifiers may encounter when specifying architectural ironmongery.
