Next week’s Security in 30 session covers a topic that is near and dear to my heart – coordinating the Division 08 specification section that covers door hardware with the Division 28 section addressing access control. I don’t know how many times I’ve worked on projects where these two sections were not aligned, with access control readers appearing in both sections or neither section, an access control system with no electrified hardware for it to control, or missing components like power transfers or power supplies. And my least favorite…access control applications that were not code compliant.
Allegion’s Security in 30 sessions are are 30-minute webinars designed with integrators in mind. If you are an access control integrator, please join us Friday, June 18th, at 12:30 p.m. EDT for:
DIV 08 and 28 Success – Panel of Peers discuss best ways to successfully serve customers
As locking hardware becomes more integrated with the access control security head-end system, the need for proper installation, maintenance and configuration is becoming more critical than ever. Join us as Chris Stull, Electronic Sales Engineer at Allegion, moderates a discussion with Bret Emerson, President of Commtech Design and Ryan Benson, Senior Project Architect at Schmidt Associates. Attendees of the session will learn about key trends in the end user market that are driving the need for Division 08/28 coordination.
Points of discussion will include:
- Typical challenges bridging the gap between DIV 08 door hardware requirements and DIV 28 electronic access control needs
- Efficiencies created using an electronic design tool or service such as Overtur™ beginning with the building of door schedules, modifications/updates, punch lists and the value presented with real time project updates
- Project challenges including the need to quickly update records reflecting changes in scope, design change orders, etc. and efficiently distribute updates to impacted project participants
And here are this week’s Webinar Wednesday sessions, presented on June 9th (all times are EDT):
- 10:00-11:00am: Steelcraft Door and Frame Construction and Application
- New to hollow metal doors & frames? Join us to learn about Steelcraft door types, such as full flush, steel stiffened, temperature rise, and style and rail doors. You will also learn the difference between masonry and dry wall frames, including some application and installation considerations. Leon Starks, Steelcraft Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 12:00-1:00pm: Health Care Hardware
- Gain insights into the difficult applications found in the health care 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.
- 2:00-3:00pm: Introduction to Basic Masterkeying
- If you’ve ever wondered how master keying works and are interested in learning some best practices for establishing and managing a master key system, this webinar is for you. Learn how there is a balance of safety, security and convenience aspects to any master key system. Learn the standard industry terms you will encounter when discussing master key system requirements with others. From this webinar, you can download a master key system survey form to assess an existing master key system, including identifying potential weaknesses of the system. Join Gordon Malczewski, our Senior Schlage Trainer, for this informative session.
- 4:00-5:00pm: Electrified Hardware – Wiring Choices
- Selecting the correct wire for electromechanical locking devices and electronic access control systems is critical for the proper operation of those devices and systems. If terms such as volts, amps, plenum-rated, and shielded leave you scratching your head, this webinar is for you. Allegion’s senior product trainer, Gordon Malczewski, will show you how to read labels on various types of cables and help you select the proper cable based on factors such as operating voltage, current rating, wire lengths, and the installation environment.
