There is one more online class in the series of four that I’m teaching on behalf of the Door & Hardware Institute – this Wednesday, February 18th, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Eastern. I’ll be covering the code requirements pertaining to electrified hardware:
- delayed egress locks
- electromagnetic locks released by a sensor
- electromagnetic locks released by door-mounted hardware
- controlled egress locks in health care occupancies
- locking of elevator lobby doors
- electric latch retraction devices on fire doors
- stairwell reentry
The last 3 editions of the IBC and NFPA 101 have included many changes to the sections that affect electrified hardware. Did you know that the activation time for delayed egress locks has changed in the 2015 IBC? Or that the 2015 IBC does not have a section called Access Controlled Egress Doors?
The last Decoded class had almost 500 people registered! Let’s break that record!
