In addition, our national trainers will offer three more webinars on Webinar Wednesday (all times are Eastern Standard Time):

- 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.
- 2:00pm – 3:30pm: Decoded 2: Fire Door Assemblies

In this presentation, we will focus on fire-rated swinging doors, including where and when they should be used. We will look at a few types of fire-rated hardware that are commonly used and what they do. We also will review the basic rules and requirements for annual fire door inspections. Finally, we’ll discuss criteria and procedures for ensuring the best possible performance from our fire-rated openings. Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, will lead this discussion.
- 4:00pm – 5:00pm: 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.
