Webinar 2: Panic Hardware – When, Where, and Why?
Thursday April 16th, 2020
The model codes require panic hardware for locations that are subject to emergency egress for a high occupant load, and also for rooms housing certain types of electrical equipment. When panic hardware is required, there are additional mandates that must be followed regarding the operation of the hardware. Fire doors add yet another layer of requirements for this hardware, and there are also exceptions that apply in some locations.
This webinar will explain when and where panic hardware is required, why it is used, and what other code requirements and exceptions need to be considered when selecting these devices. Code requirements for electrified options including access control, delayed egress, controlled egress, and electromagnetic-lock release will also be addressed. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the webinar.
The live version of this webinar will offer continuing education credits for the following organizations:
After the webinar, the recording will be available here but will not be eligible for continuing education credits where provider reporting is required.
Webinar 1: Code Changes Affecting Classroom Security
As school districts and higher-education facilities work to improve school security, it’s critical that the requirements of the model codes and accessibility standards are followed. The 2018 editions of the International Building Code, International Fire Code, and NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code, all include changes specific to classroom doors. A Tentative Interim Amendment was approved in 2019, which further modifies the 2018 edition of NFPA 101.
This webinar covers the requirements of the model codes and the ADA Standards for Accessible Design that apply to classroom doors. It includes information about state legislation that may also have an impact on security decisions, and other considerations that should be taken into account when selecting classroom security products.
Note: The live version of this webinar offered continuing education credits for AIA. The recording is not eligible for AIA credits, but does offer CEUs for DHI and ICC.
