One thing I have found during my 35 years in the door and hardware industry is that there is always more to learn.  The Allegion national trainers have been hosting webinars each Wednesday for the past 5 weeks, and some of the most popular sessions are back this week for those who missed them.

June 17th – Webinar Wednesday Live Classes (all times EST) – Click HERE to register for any of the webinars below.


10-11am: Hurricane Hardware Product Testing and Compliance

As codes continue to become more stringent in hurricane-prone areas of the country, products designed for harsh conditions are becoming even more specific. This session will familiarize you with the terminology used when discussing openings in hurricane zones and will give you an overview of the testing done on these products. You will learn what to look for when choosing the opening components, where to go to find product approvals, and what it takes for these doors, frames, and hardware to be considered compliant.

Leon Starks, our Steelcraft Training Manager, will lead this session.


12am-1pm: Keying Schematics

Labeling the different types of keys in a master key system can be challenging and confusing. If you’ve ever wondered if there was a systematic industry standard for developing and assigning these labels, this webinar is for you.

Our Schlage Training Manager, Gordon Malczewski, will show you how to use the Standard Key Coding System to assign key symbols used on various levels of a master key system.


2-3pm: Electrified Hardware for Access Control Systems and Security

Electrified and electronic hardware can enhance the security and safety of a facility if the hardware selections are made with the facility’s needs in mind. During this session, we’ll talk about the importance of asking questions of your clients to determine how they need openings to function given their access control and security requirements. We’ll have time to discuss some electrified and electronic hardware components commonly in use today and that can grow/adapt as your clients’ needs change.

John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.


4-5pm: Healthcare Hardware

Gain insights into the difficult applications found in the healthcare arena.  In this program, we will highlight various codes & standards that affect these doors as well as security considerations.  We’ll also address the challenges associated with the heavy usage in such 24/7 facilities and the importance of simple solutions for common openings.
Jeff Tock, AHC, our End User Training Manager, will lead this session


Security in 30:

This Friday, June 19th, Allegion will present the fifth in a series of six 30-minute webinars designed with integrators in mind.  If you are an access control integrator, please join us Friday at 12:30 p.m. EDT for Security in 30: Live with Allegion.

Allegion Security in 30This week’s topic:  Overtur™: Collaboration made easy

Friday, June 19th, 12:30-1pm EDT

Presented by Shawn Foster,
Allegion Overtur content strategist

Openings are tedious and complex to coordinate and manage, especially in today’s electronics age.  Allegion’s Overtur is here to help by getting key stakeholders involved throughout the project, not just at the end.  This session will focus on how stakeholders in the access control space can find value using Overtur to review and search on relevant project opening data, collaborate with project stakeholders, and use mobile applications in the field.
