It’s hard to believe that it has been so many months since we’ve been able to gather in a classroom together, but during that time Allegion has provided more than 150 online classes. Here’s what’s coming up this week:
The Allegion 101 series is for people who are new to the industry, new to the Allegion family of brands, or just want to learn more about hardware (all times are Eastern). Tuesday’s session is:
- 1:00pm – 2:30pm: Allegion 101 – Secure the Door: Schlage
- In this session, we will focus on the Schlage ND Series Cylindrical Locks and the Schlage L Series Mortise Locks. Become familiar with common lock functions and the openings on which they are used. Learn how to interpret Schlage model numbers/nomenclature so you can make sense of documents (e.g., order acknowledgements, price lists, etc.) and literature (e.g., catalogs, sell sheets, etc.). Gordon Malczewski, our Schlage Senior Trainer, will lead this webinar.
The complete list of classes in the Allegion 101 series is here and you can register using the links on the Allegion Virtual Events Calendar. If you miss a class, the recordings are on the Event Board of the Allegion Training Page.
Here are the sessions scheduled for Webinar Wednesday (all times are Eastern):
- 10:00am – 11:00am: 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.
- 12:00pm – 1:00pm: Servicing Schlage AD Series Locks and Peripherals with Schlage Utility Software
- Schlage Utility Software (SUS) is a robust tool that not only is used to set-up and secure your Schlage AD Series products, it can also help you maintain peak performance from your devices. During their lifecycle, troubleshooting, servicing, and occasional updates of your networked AD devices may be required, and this is the tool that helps you perform these tasks. This session will help you to achieve optimal performance of your AD components. John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 2:00pm – 3:00pm: 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.
- 4:00pm – 5:00pm: The Essentials of Fire Door Inspections
- Are you responsible or partially responsible for the integrity of the fire-rated openings at your facility or your customer’s facility? If so, then you probably also have some responsibility to ensure these openings pass an annual fire door inspection. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) first introduced requirements for annual fire door inspections in their 2007 edition of the NFPA 80 Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Since the NFPA 80 2013 edition, fire door inspectors are required to examine each fire door assembly for thirteen criteria. Learn what those thirteen criteria are, how to spot them, and ultimately, how to protect life and property by keeping fire doors operating properly. Join Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, for this informative session.
