It’s hard to believe that we are entering the 4th quarter of 2020!  Where did the year go?  (Don’t answer that.)  The online training offered by our national trainers for the last 20(!) Webinar Wednesdays will continue into October.

Here’s what’s scheduled for this week (all times are Eastern Daylight Time):


10:00am – 11:00am: Delayed Egress

One of the golden rules of door hardware is that a lock should never impede egress, but there are specific situations where locking hardware is allowed to do so. In this presentation, we will review “Delayed Egress,” a special code-regulated application that inhibits immediate passage through a door opening. We will explain what different codes say about this function with emphasis on where it can and cannot be used. We will give an overview of two of the most commonly used products to achieve delayed egress along with additional resources for more detailed requirements.

Jeff Tock, AHC, and our End User Training Manager, will lead this discussion.


12:00pm – 1:00pm: Essentials of Access Control

In this session, we will explore the essential components of access control. We will discuss products common in access control, including their features and benefits and the solutions they provide for a building’s occupants and owners.

John Dalrymple, our Allegion Electronics Training Manager, will lead this exploration.


2:00pm – 3:00pm: K-12: Designing for Layered Security

When designing or remodeling a school, security and safety should be at the forefront of discussions and design. It’s important to understand the most common types of threats in educational facilities in order to create layers of security with the appropriate opening hardware to mitigate those threats.

In this session, Schlage’s Training Manager, Gordon Malczewski, will provide you with code-compliant ways to achieve lockdown status when needed.


4:00pm – 5:00pm: Creating a Path to Safety

Commercial buildings have many different parts designed to protect its inhabitants. One of the most important elements is its door openings–in particular, the doors that lead us to safety. In our presentation, we will discuss these doors and will define the three parts of an egress opening. You will see products that are often specified for use on or around these openings. Current codes that control how these openings are constructed and operate will be summarized. This discussion will help you plan for your future openings and will help you ensure your current openings meet the acceptable standards needed in your area.

John Dalrymple, Allegion Electronics Training Manager, will lead this discussion on recognizing safe egress for you and your facilities.
