Thanks to everyone who attended my webinars last week – the recording of the session will be on the webinars page of iDigHardware within the next few days. You can also find additional resources about the 2021 code changes on that page, under Webinar #6.
Coming up this week…
The Allegion 101 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 has just started their career in the door and hardware industry, or maybe someone in another role who could begin learning more about the technical / product side of things, set them up with this course!
Allegion 101 | Protect the Door: Ives, Zero, and More
Tuesday, August 31st, 1:00pm – 2:30pm Eastern
In this session, we’ll conclude the series by addressing some of the most common hardware used to complete an opening and to protect a door and the opening from everyday wear-and-tear and abuse. From Ives kick plates and armor plates to Zero seals, thresholds, and door bottoms, you’ll learn the basics of these product families, including their model numbers/nomenclature. We will also familiarize you with a few products, such as coordinators and overhead holders and stops, that you are likely to encounter in this wonderfully-detailed world of architectural hardware.
Our national trainers continue their Webinar Wednesday series!
Wednesday, September 1st (all times are Eastern)
- 12:00-1:00pm: Lock Functions
- Are you new to locks for non-residential buildings? This webinar will provide you a solid foundation, from describing lock functions in terms of how the lock behaves to explaining the difference between function name, ANSI number, and Schlage model number. You’ll get the opportunity to practice selecting the best lock function for a particular scenario. Gordon Malczewski, Schlage Training Manager, will be your guide.
- 2:00-3:00pm: Delayed Egress
- One of the golden rules in door hardware is that a lock should never impede egress, but there are specific situations where locking hardware is allowed to do so. In this presentation we will review “Delayed Egress,” a special code-regulated application that inhibits immediate passage through a door opening. We will explain what different codes say about this function with emphasis on where it can and cannot be used. We will give an overview of two of the most commonly used products to achieve delayed egress along with additional resources for more detailed requirements. John Dalrymple, AHC, our End User Training Manager, will lead this discussion.
ALSO WEDNESDAY (Previously held on Thursdays)
Door Drills | Maintaining Your Door Closers, Featuring the LCN 4040XP
Wednesday, September 1st, 4:00-5:00pm Eastern
Are you responsible in whole or part for keeping the doors at your facility in good working order? If so, our Door Drills series is for you.
This session looks at door closers, one of the essential products in keeping openings safe and secure. Learn common causes and cures for such symptoms as slamming doors, or doors that open too fast, or doors that only partially open, or doors with fluid running down from the closers. We hope you can join us.
