Fire door hardware hots up for architects

, Architect News, News

A new CPD seminar on architectural ironmongery for fire and escape doors has been launched for architects, interior designers and specifiers.

The RIBA-approved CPD module has been produced by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) and is delivered exclusively by GAI members across the country.

These architectural ironmongery companies play a crucial role, working with architects, interior designers, contractors and others to schedule and specify the hardware for every door and window in a building and to produce a full fixing schedule of hardware items.

This latest CPD module helps specifiers understand the legal, financial and ethical risks around the specification of hardware for fire and scape doors, as well as the correct ironmongery for different types of doors and the best way to check and maintain them once they’re installed.

As the training is RIBA approved, architects will be able to receive double learning points for attending a presentation of this CPD.

Other RIBA-approved CPD modules from the GAI include workshops on the basics of door hardware specification, and on ironmongery and compliance with accessibility regulations.
