New GEZE CPD – Removing Barriers to Access

  • 10 Aug 2021

GEZE UK’s popular RIBA-approved CPD Removing Barriers to Access has been completely revised and updated. It includes new visuals and updates to regulation all in GEZE’s new branding.

The CPD looks at why door controls are needed, explains the various standards and regulations that apply, where and when to use a manual door control or an automatic operator. It looks at self-closing devices for fire door applications and the benefits of electro hold-open devices.

The seminar explains the benefit of automatic doors, the different types and their suitability, as well as potential danger points.

GEZE

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 requirements of specifying door control devices to make buildings accessible to everyone.

The 40 minute seminar covers all the relevant standards and regulations and is included in RIBA’s core curriculum: Access for all, Compliance, and Designing and building it.

It can be presented in person or virtually via a variety of online platforms and at a time to suit. This is usually lunchtime, but breakfast seminars or afternoon sessions can be accommodated.

‘Same opportunities’

Richard Richardson-Derry, National Specification Manager, comments: “The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and its replacement, The Equality Act 2010, has rightly enshrined in law that a disabled person must not discriminated against and has the same opportunities as every other member of the public.

“This includes access to shops restaurants, theatres, hospitals or any public building. This seminar provides detailed guidance on how architects and specifiers can do just that.”

RIBA Chartered Architects have an obligation to undertake a minimum of 35 hours a week to maintain their competence: https://www.architecture.com/education-cpd-and-careers/cpd/fulfilling-your-cpd-obligations

and Maintaining Ironmongery for Fire Doors.
