I know last week I said it was the conclusion of Allegion 101 (that’s what the schedule said!) but there’s one more session on the calendar for this week! 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! Recordings of the sessions are available via the link below.
Tuesday, June 1st:
- 1:00-2:30pm EDT: Allegion 101. Introduction to Electrified Hardware
- In this session, you will learn the basics of electrified hardware. Learn what quiet electric latch retraction is. See how electrified trim for an exit device works. Learn about electrified locksets and electric strikes and when to use one over the other. And to help make all those devices work, we will introduce you to our power supplies and electric transfers. And, become familiar with popular Von Duprin and Schlage model numbers/nomenclature so you can more readily interpret documents (e.g., order acknowledgements, templates, etc.) and literature (e.g., catalogs, brochures, etc.). Gordon Malczewski, our Senior Product Trainer, will lead this session.
And here are this week’s Webinar Wednesday sessions, presented on June 2nd (all times are EDT):
- 10:00-11:00am: Electrified Hardware for Access Control Systems and Security
- Electrified and electronic hardware can enhance the security and safety of a facility if the hardware selections are made with the facility’s needs in mind. During this session, we’ll talk about the importance of asking questions of your clients to determine how they need openings to function given their access control and security requirements. We’ll have time to discuss some electrified and electronic hardware components commonly in use today and that can grow/adapt as your clients’ needs change. John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 12:00-1:00pm: Code Changes Affecting Classroom Doors
- The 2018 editions of the International Building Code, International Fire Code, and NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code, all include changes specific to classroom doors. A Tentative Interim Amendment was approved in 2019 which further modifies the 2018 edition of NFPA 101. This session will cover the requirements of these model codes as they apply to classroom doors, including how these changes and some states’ legislation impact the types of security devices allowed on classroom doors. Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 2:00-3:00pm: Basic Hardware – Keying, 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: 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.
