Howe Green Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of access covers, has launched a new CPD seminar.
The CPD – “Safe Access All Areas: Floor Access” has been accredited by RIBA and is listed on the RIBA CPD website – www.ribacpd.com.
The aim of the CPD is to help architects and specifiers gain a greater insight into the key considerations when specifying floor access covers.
Floor access covers provide a safe and easy way to overcome the challenge of accessing building services concealed under floors. As a small part of an overall construction project floor access covers are often an overlooked element of the building envelope. However, the consequences of specifying an access cover that is inappropriate for the environment where it is being installed can have far-reaching, and costly, implications.
Choice of materials, such as stainless steel or aluminium, loading performance, floor finish and fire rating are examples of just some of the different design parameters that need to be considered when specifying floor access covers.
The CPD also outlines how floor access covers can be moved safely and in line with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (MHOR) 1992, CDM 2015 Regulations and Building Regulations.
