ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions Announce Further CPD Availability


ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions has launched a new RIBA-approved CPD course focusing on Door Closers, demonstrating its continued investment in support of its architect customers.

The CPD seminar, entitled ‘Opening Your Eyes to Door Closers: A Guide for Architects’, will cover the function of a door closer, the different types of door closer available, specification considerations, and the relevant standards, regulations and tests. The seminar also draws upon a real-life application, looking at a project recently undertaken by ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions at Heriot-Watt University, where door closers were successfully specified and installed across a large-scale new student residences complex. 

Suitable for architects working across a variety of sectors – from healthcare and education, to financial and commercial applications – the seminar will inform participants of everything they need to correctly specify door closers, in line with the legislative demands of their building environment.

Upon completing the CPD seminar, participants will gain training points towards their yearly requirement, having worked across inclusive design, health & safety and compliance competencies under the RIBA CPD core curriculum.

Claire Jones, CPD Co-ordinator for ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “Having an established and successful range of RIBA accredited CPD courses, we are pleased to bring this new addition to our seminar offering. 

“Whether they’re aiding acoustics, security, fire safety or accessibility, a door closer is a critical part of an overall access system. I hope this opportunity to understand a door closer’s functionality will help our architect customers to stay at the very forefront of doorset specification. 

“The courses are available at our ASSA ABLOY Training Academy, based in the Midlands, offering easy access and good transport links. For additional flexibility we are able to conduct the seminars on site, or at an Architects’ practice.”
