Automatic operators can be complicated, and it’s important to understand the code requirements to help ensure the safety of people using the doors.  Between BHMA A156.19 and A156.10, the accessibility standards, and the model codes, there’s a lot to know.  But not to worry!  Our national trainers have an auto operator class as part of this week’s Webinar Wednesday line-up!


Our national trainers continue their Webinar Wednesday series!
Wednesday, September 22nd (all times are Eastern)

  • 10:00-11:30am: 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, Regional Training Manager for Allegion, will guide you through the exercise of choosing the operator that can best meet your needs.
  • 12:00-1:00pm: 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.
  • 2:00-3:00pm: 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 stiffended, temperature rise, and style and rail doors.

ALSO WEDNESDAY (Previously held on Thursdays)

Door Drills | Add Access Control to Your Von Duprin 98/99 Series Exit Devices
Wednesday, September 22nd, 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.

Electronic access control is part of most facilities these days.  Join this webinar to learn how you can update a standard Von Duprin 98 or 99 Series device so that it will work seamlessly with an access control system.  We’ll start by sharing with you the five essential questions to ask at the start.  Then, we’ll use four applications—four common scenarios where electronic access control is often added to mechanical openings—to describe the products and accessories you can use.  We will feature the Von Duprin QEL (Quiet Electric Latch Retraction) Exit Devices and the Von Duprin M996L Trim (the Motor Driven Electrified Lever Trim).

Sign up for this session and future Door Drills classes by visiting the Allegion Virtual Event Calendar.
