In my current column in USGlass Magazine, I addressed the requirements for electromagnetic locks released by a sensor. Are you aware of the change to the 2024 I-Codes affecting this application? Can you answer this question?
What codes apply to doors with electromagnetic locks released by a sensor?
There are two sets of code requirements that typically apply to electromagnetic locks. Beginning with the 2024 I-Codes, only one of these applications will be allowed on doors with panic hardware. If you’re not familiar with this change, check out the post on the USGlass website!
