- 10:00-11:00am: 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.

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.

Security in 30 Live with Allegion | How to Leverage Available Federal COVID Education Stimulus Funding for Access Control Solutions: What to know and actions to take
Friday, July 16th, 12:30-1:00 p.m. EDT
The health and safety of students and staff continues to be a top priority for school districts, colleges and universities. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to intensify the magnitude of this challenge. Balancing the procedures related to security, safety and infection control is like putting together a puzzle.
Thankfully, the US federal government has taken action to support schools in this endeavor by providing Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) and Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEERF) funding, to ensure every student has the resources they need to learn in-person, in a safe and healthy environment. Join the discussion as our experts highlight the provisions within the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES), Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA), and American Rescue Plan (ARP) Acts, which allows this funding to upgrade access control and security solutions to assist school districts, colleges and universities as they work to get their students & teachers back to school safely.
