dhi-class2Last week I conducted a 3-hour class for the New England Chapter of the Door & Hardware Institute.  The class is available to any hardware suppliers, architects, or end users in New England who need to understand code requirements related to doors and hardware, including recent changes to the Massachusetts State Building Code, and the 2006 and 2009 editions of the International Building Code and the Life Safety Code.  If you have 12 or more people who are interested in attending, I will conduct the class at your facility or our office in Needham, Massachusetts.  It’s worth 3 HSW learning units for AIA members, and 9 continuing education points for DHI members.

A few of the topics covered are:

~ positive pressure testing of fire doors
~ changes to requirements for stairwell door locks
~ delayed egress hardware
~ refresher on accessibility standards
~ changes to glazing for fire doors
~ panic hardware including new locations where panics are required
~ comprehensive requirements for fire doors and egress doors
~ new requirement for annual inspection of fire doors

I can also offer a condensed version of the class for those who want to skip the basics and learn only about the recent changes.  To discuss a class, drop me an email – lori.greene@allegion.com.

    Lori-
    Thanks for being so willing to share your well-researched (and well-documented) knowledge of door hardware and the various
    codes. This seminar was well worth the time–I would recommend it to anyone in our business. Your photos helped bring the “real world” to our classroom …and your sense of humor kept everything in balance!

    …much appreciated.
