Ingersoll upgrades website with architect zone
Dubai, April 30, 2013
Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading provider of safety solutions, has created a resource on its website meant specifically for architects and designers to help them define and specify security solutions easier.
The architect section includes information on continuing education and American Institute of Architects (AIA) courses, green initiatives, links to code and compliance organisations, product selection guides and technical documentation, security solutions, a spec writer link and other pertinent security information.
“Our new architect site has just been completed and, already, we’re getting feedback on how helpful it is,” said John Diedam, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies vice president of Sales.
“We have consolidated everything architects want into our architecture section, which we think architects will find the most helpful in the security industry.”
According to Diedam, much of the information on the website was garnered from Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies’ over 120 spec writers in the US, Canada, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. They write 7,000 specifications, amounting to more than one million leaves, each year.
Architects can browse the continuing education and AIA catalogs within the site to find what courses are available and even link to online courses.
In the “Information on Sustainable Building” section information about LEED is available. Architects can read case studies, articles on hot topics or join a blog conversation about door hardware solutions codes and industry issues.
Once the correct product is identified, the architect can then download documents, such as specification sheets, diagrams and standards. There is even a section on spec writing services with links to codes and compliance organisations.
Other services available from Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies include preparation of complete hardware specifications, hardware sets and numerical door indexes.
Architects can ask for assistance with specification writing, substitution requests, application and product questions, RFI’s and the value engineering process. They can also read reviews and comments on hardware submittals as well as obtain consulting on the necessary building codes to ensure fire, life safety and accessibility requirements are met.
Architects can receive product catalog cuts and wiring elevations. Lastly, they can request Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies experts to conduct job site reviews, pre-installation inspections and post-installation inspections. – TradeArabia News Service
