This is one of my favorite work weeks of the year, when lots of people are on vacation (don’t forget to send me some photos!). I usually use these “virtual vacation weeks” to try to catch up a little while my inbox is a little less busy. I’m currently updating my ShortCodes classes, which will be added to our Learning Management System in the coming months. I’ll let you know when they’re ready!
We have lots of classes coming up next week – the rescheduled AIA presentation on touchless openings (morning or afternoon), the next Security in 30 session on Friday, a new Allegion 101 course begins, and our Door Drills series continues. You can always check the Allegion Virtual Events Calendar to see what’s coming up.
For those of you who are NOT on vacation, here are this week’s Webinar Wednesday sessions, presented this Wednesday, July 7th (all times are EDT):
- 10:00-11:00am: 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.
- 12:00-1:00pm: Servicing Schlage Networked AD Series Locks and Peripherals with Schlage Utility Software
- Schlage Utility Software (SUS) is a robust tool that not only is used to set-up and secure your Schlage AD Series products, it can also help you maintain peak performance from your devices. During their lifecycle, troubleshooting, servicing, and occasional updates of your networked AD devices may be required, and this is the tool that helps you perform these tasks. This session will help you to achieve optimal performance of your AD components. John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 2:00-3:30pm: 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.
- 4:00-5:00pm: Steelcraft Door & 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.
