Security in 30 | Security in 30: DIV 08 and 28 Success 2.0
Presented by: Bret Emerson, President of Commtech Design; Ryan Benson, AIA, Senior Project Architect, Associate, Schmidt Associates; Brad Alexander, Director, Architectural Business Development, 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.
Diving deeper into the division 8/28 dilemma, Allegion, Bret Emerson, President of Commtech Design and Ryan Benson, Senior Project Architect at Schmidt Associates are back again this year to discuss best practices for coordinating division 8/28. Our panelists will discuss the driving need for Division 8/28 coordination, and how it can impact the overall project.
Wednesday, June 29th
- 10:00-11:00AM: Accessible Buildings: The Critical Requirements for Clear Width and Maneuvering Clearances
- Although it has been thirty years since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defined what makes for an accessible commercial building, some buildings—especially structures built before 1990—may fall a little short in meeting the clear width and maneuvering clearance requirements for openings. In this session, learn what those requirements are, why they are so important to an individual with disabilities, and how to check and solve for compliance. Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, will be your guide.
- 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, and our End User Training Manager, will lead this discussion.
- 2:00-3:00PM: New to architectural hardware? Start here.
- If you are new to the world of door hardware, this event is for you. Jeff Tock, our Product 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.
- 4:00-5:00PM: 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.
