Can a wave-to-open switch be used to actuate an automatic operator? Does the IBC allow any stairwell doors to be locked mechanically? What’s new in codes for health care facilities? Find out in this week’s classes!
Allegion 101 continues on Tuesday! This series was designed for people who are new to the industry, new to the Allegion family of brands, or just want to learn more about hardware. If you know of someone who is new to doors and hardware, or maybe someone in another role who could begin learning more about the technical / product side of things, set them up with this course!
Tuesday, April 27th:
- 1:00-2:30pm EDT: 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.
And here are this week’s Webinar Wednesday sessions, presented on April 28th (all times are EDT):
- 10:00-11:30am: Low Energy Automatic Operator Fundamentals
- Automatic operators can help facilities and people with accessibility issues and touchless access preferences, but selecting the correct operator can be confusing. Is it permissible to use a motion detector to activate the door? Does a wave to activate actuator meet the Knowing Act requirements of the ANSI standards? Join us as we explore the differences between Low Energy automatic operators and Full Power (High Energy) automatic operators. Learn what the standards require for proper speed adjustments and opening force requirements for doors with automatic operators. Find out which LCN operators provide the most adjustability to meet building owner needs. Jeff Tock, AHC and Regional Training Manager for Allegion, will guide you through the exercise of choosing the operator that can best meet your needs.
- 12:00-1:00pm: 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 are 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.
- 2:00-3:00pm: Basic Locks and Exit Devices
- If you are new to the world of door hardware, this event is for you. Gordon Malczewski, our Schlage Training Manager, will address lock functions and their applications and the basics of panic and fire exit hardware. He will introduce you to key systems.
- 4:00-5:00pm: 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, and our End User Training Manager, will lead this session.
