We’ve got a boatload of classes coming up…on health care, electrified hardware, masterkeying, accessories, and hollow metal – and the Thursday class offers continuing education credit for AIA!
Our national trainers continue their Webinar Wednesday series!
Wednesday, December 1st (all times are Eastern)
- 10:00-11:00am: Healthcare Hardware
- Gain insights into the difficult applications found in the healthcare arena. In this program, we will highlight various codes & standards that affect these doors as well as security considerations. We’ll also address the challenges associated with the heavy usage in such 24/7 facilities and the importance of simple solutions for common openings. Jeff Tock, AHC, our End User Training Manager, will lead this session.
- 12:00-1:00pm: Access Control for Stairwells
- Stairwell openings provide unique challenges for hardware and security professionals. As fire-rated openings, they must meet the requirements as defined by our building codes. And, as stairwell openings, there are another set of requirements set by our building codes around re-entry requirements. In the event of a fire, the codes want to ensure no one gets caught in a smoke-filled stairwell. Join Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, to learn more about how to meet these very important requirements while also addressing a multi-story building’s access control needs.
- 2:00-3:00pm: 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.
- 4:00-5:00pm: Introduction to Republic Doors & Frames
- Republic Doors and Frames joined our Allegion family of brands in 2017.

Presented by: Melany Whalin and Connie Alexander of Allegion
Healthcare organizations have managed through a rapid response to the pandemic which has transformed every aspect of healthcare delivery, including design and construction. Some of those changes and challenges are temporary and some will permanently alter the industry. Recent research explores the current state of the hospital market, focusing primarily on security initiatives, COVID-19 mitigation and other trends in the healthcare industry. This has identified trends ranging from product usage to combat the spread of germs and viruses, to the use of ligature resistant hardware in behavioral health rooms. Join our hosts as they share key findings and highlight considerations in the design and specification of healthcare facilities.
