There are still limited places available for companies in the door, shutter and hardware sectors wanting to attend workshops at the Door & Hardware Federationís annual Conference and Expo on Thursday, September 25 in Loughborough.
The free workshops, which cover a wide variety of subjects relevant to the industry, are always popular with delegates, and this yearís Conference and Expo is no exception. Third party certification, sustainability, NVQ training and Kitemarking are just some of the hot topics being discussed at the workshops.
The DHF Conference and Expo programme of workshops is taking place in the Loughborough Universityís Sir Denis Rooke Building, Holywell Park on September 25 from 9 am to 3 pm. Workshop attendance is free but advance bookings need to be made. A buffet lunch will be available for all delegates. The Conference & Expo and workshops are open to DHF members and non members.
The workshops are:
Third party certification - Third party certification is mandatory for fire products specified by Metronet Rail for the London Underground. This has far reaching implications on the specification of fire rated products such as doors and shutters by other companies following the Metronet Rail lead. Fire consultant Mike Turner, who introduced the scheme for Metronet, is leading this workshop.
Sustainability - Jane Thornback, environmental policy advisor with the Construction Products Association, will show how costs can be saved by cutting unnecessary energy use and increasing commitment to sustainability.
NVQ training - Oliver Farrell of the CITB, along with the DHF, will demonstrate how companies can benefit from implementing NVQ training.
Part L - Part L of the Building Regulations governs the energy performance of industrial and commercial doors. Ray Nowell, DHF technical officer will describe the changes which will be seen in the new version of Part L due in 2010.
Kitemarking - Kevin Frewen, of BSI, explains the significance of Kitemarking for garage door installers.
Factory production control - Factory production control systems are required for CE marking under the Construction Products Directive. Ray Nowell, DHF technical officer, will demonstrate how systems can be put in place.
In addition to the workshops, there will be a large number of trade exhibition stands which will showcase best practice in the door, shutter and hardware sectors.
