Late in 2010 when this blog was about a year and a half old, the editor of Doors & Hardware asked if she could publish one of my blog posts in each issue as a monthly column. Because I feel so strongly that an understanding of code requirements is very important to the door and hardware industry and beyond, of course I said yes! Each month I write an article about a code issue, which is published in the magazine and also posted on my site. I have also written articles for Construction Specifier, Locksmith Ledger, Life Safety Digest, and others.
I post the links to each of these on the Articles page of this site, and there are now 50 articles collected there! That has to be some sort of a record! When someone asks me a code question, I can often go to that page and find an article that will provide additional background along with my answer. I hope you all are using the Articles page to find what you need.
