Security in 30 | Healthcare Insights in a Rapidly Evolving Marketplace
Presented by: Connie Alexander, Senior Manager for Primary Research & Insights, Allegion
If you are in the business of Electronic Access Control – Allegion’s Security in 30 webinar series is for you. While anyone is welcome to attend, these sessions were created primarily for integrators and those in the EAC industry.
Health care organizations have managed through a rapid response to the pandemic which has transformed every aspect of healthcare delivery. Recent research explores the current state of the hospital market, focusing primarily on security initiatives, COVID-19 mitigation and the use of electronic access control to provide safer, healthier buildings. Join Connie Alexander, Allegion’s Senior Manager for Primary Research & Insights, as she discusses the key findings.

Webinar Wednesday – Sorry! This week’s webinars have been cancelled, but check out the schedule for April 20th:
Wednesday, April 20th
- 10:00-11:00AM: Door Drills | Maintenance Tips for Your Von Duprin Exit Hardware, Featuring the 98/99 Series
- 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. Because the Von Duprin exit device is designed and built to last, with just a little care and attention and perhaps with the occasional addition of an optional feature, the exit device will perform its essential life safety role well for many years. Attend this session as we address such service items as checking for proper mounting and lubrication, device settings that determine the trim locking/unlocking operation, replacing the shear pin on the lever trim, adding cylinder dogging, adding an alarm kit, etc.
- 12:00-1:00PM: 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.
- 2:00-3:00PM: 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.
- 4:00-5:00PM: Electrified Hardware for Access Control Systems and Security
- Electrified and electronic hardware can enhance the security and safety of a facility if the hardware selections are made with the facility’s needs in mind. During this session, we’ll talk about the importance of asking questions of your clients to determine how they need openings to function given their access control and security requirements. We’ll have time to discuss some electrified and electronic hardware components commonly in use today and that can grow/adapt as your clients’ needs change. John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.
