CPD – The Road to Enlightenment

Cooke Brothers have embarked upon a programme of Continuing Professional Development programmes (CPD), in partnership with ‘CPD Specifier’ who are one of the UKs longest standing CPD providers and ‘CHeSS’ who run a series of highly specialised and targeted events focusing on the Controls, Hardware, Seals and Security markets.

CPD is an integral part of professional development in the construction, specifier and architectural sectors, with professionals expected to complete a minimum number of hours study each year as instructed by their professional membership organisations.

With a history that stretches back almost 150 years Cooke Brothers was established to manufacture hinges, which remain a core product to this day. Now a key player in high-performance architectural hardware design, manufacture and supply, the quality of our engineering is evident. With our products highly accredited and conforming to the latest standards in Europe and beyond, we are a natural choice to offer CPD in the architectural ironmongery sector.

The CHeSS event is a collaboration of five of the leading suppliers in the market, with products that complement each other, rather than compete. The roadshow showcases products to architects and specifiers, outlining how various solutions can work together. Collaborators included: Norseal, an industry leader in intumescent products and door seals. Boss Door Controls, market leader in door closing devices. Strand Hardware, suppliers of high quality window and door hardware for commercial buildings. Access2, master keyed locks and access controls. And of course, Cooke Brothers, leading UK designers and manufacturers of High Performance Architectural Hinges.
