Lorient produces an introductory guide to door sealing; accredited by the Construction CPD Service

Leading door seal manufacturer Lorient has produced an informative new guidance document entitled: “Sealing Systems for Door Assemblies; An Introductory Guide”; which is accredited by the Construction CPD Service - and qualifies for one hour's CPD.

The guide has been written as an introduction to the concept of door sealing; and has been specifically designed for students, or those new to the industry who want to learn ‘the basics’. It incorporates the principles of acoustic, smoke and fire sealing for doors assemblies; and focuses on the important issues of perimeter and threshold sealing. Several other useful sealing products are mentioned too, such as seals for glass doors and finger guards.

Relevant Approved Documents to the Building Regulations (England and Wales) are covered including: Approved Document E (sound); Approved Document B (smoke at all temperatures and fire); and Approved Document M (accessibility). Similar publications for Northern Ireland are also mentioned; as well as the relevant requirements for Scotland - The Scottish Technical Handbooks.

Another section of the guide provides an overview of independent accreditation schemes that exist, with particular relevance to fire seals and smoke seals. These schemes set out benchmark quality and performance requirements, which go beyond the simple passing of a single fire or smoke test.

Many other pertinent topics are included too; and after each section in the guide there is an activity to help reinforce the learning process.
