Tomorrow is Webinar Wednesday, with the following classes presented by our national trainers (all times are EST).

The links to register are on the Allegion virtual event calendar.

10:00am – 11:00am: Hurricane Hardware Product Testing and Compliance

As codes continue to get more stringent in hurricane-prone areas of the country, products designed for harsh conditions are becoming even more stringent. 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 products, where to go to find product approvals, and what it takes for these products to be considered compliant.

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


12:00pm – 1:00pm: Lock Functions

Are you new to locks for non-residential buildings? This webinar will provide you a solid foundation, from describing lock functions in terms of how the lock behaves to explaining the difference between function name, ANSI number, and Schlage model number. You’ll get the opportunity to practice selecting the best lock function for a particular scenario.

Gordon Malczewski, Schlage Training Manager, will be your guide.


2:00pm – 3:00pm: Schlage and Von Duprin Power Supplies

Are you responsible for selecting, ordering, or advising others on the right power supply for electrified openings? In this session, learn about the Schlage and Von Duprin power supplies and when to use each. You will also become familiar with the seven different option boards and the appropriate applications for those boards.

Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, will lead this session.


4:00pm – 5:00pm: Access Control for Stairwells

Stairwell openings provide unique challenges for hardware and security professionals. As fire-rated openings, they must meet the requirements as defined by our building codes. And, as stairwell openings, there is another set of requirements set by our building codes around re-entry requirements. In the event of a fire, the codes want to ensure no one gets caught in a smoke-filled stairwell.

Join Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, to learn more about how to meet these very important requirements while also addressing a multi-story building’s access control needs.


Note: I have 2 webinars coming up…one is a 2021 model code update for the DHI conNextions virtual conference, and the other is the third in my series on code requirements for electrified hardware, scheduled for November 19th (next topic: delayed egress and controlled egress).  I hope to “see” you there!
