Deemed to Satisfy Compliant Level Entry Thresholds
As with all aspects of the construction sector, the specification of level entry thresholds in Australia involves compliance with the National Construction Code (NCC). As is also standard, compliance of these products can involve either Performance Solutions (which vary according to the specific job) or the more prescriptive and standardised Deemed-to-Satisfy (DTS) solutions.
In the case of level entry thresholds, amongst specifiers, the DTS option is broadly acknowledged as the way to go. For these products, taking the Performance Solution is viewed as not just unnecessary but too expensive.
That said, the pathway to DTS compliance is not as clear as it could be. This CPD Live Session is intended to address that lack of clarity. Beginning by outlining the relevant regulations, their purpose, and their origins, our speakers will go on to outline the clearest and simplest pathway to not just DTS compliance but best practice.
By the end of this session, you should be able to:
- Outline the regulations that apply to the installation of Level Entry Thresholds in Australia
- Explain why, across the industry, DTS Solutions are generally regarded as preferable to Performance Solutions when specifying Level Entry Thresholds
- Explain the origin of the NCC regulations that address Level Entry Thresholds
- Outline the best and simplest ways to meet the DTS requirements of the NCC requirements when specifying Level Entry Thresholds
