Webinar 5 – Decoded: Delayed Egress and Controlled Egress Locking Systems

Thursday November 19th, 2020

The possibility of elopement or theft often motivates the use of locking systems that deter passage through egress doors, but building, fire, and life safety code requirements must be met.  While a delayed egress lock is allowed by code to delay egress for 15 seconds, a controlled egress system can prevent egress in some healthcare units indefinitely – until evacuation is necessary.

This webinar will cover these two types of systems and the code requirements that apply to each.  Learn when and where to use them, and the varying limitations of each of the model codes.  Understanding these systems can help to ensure that the correct components are specified and installed, and that the system will be code-compliant.  There will be time for Q&A at the end of the webinar.

Webinar 1: Code Changes Affecting Classroom Security

This webinar was presented on February 27th, 2020 – click here to view the recording.  If you have viewed the live or recorded webinar, I’d love your feedback (the survey is here)!

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.

Webinar 2: Panic Hardware – When, Where, and Why?

This webinar was presented on April 16th, 2020 – click here to view the recording.  If you have viewed the live or recorded webinar, I’d love your feedback (the survey is here)!

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.

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.

Webinar 3: Introduction to the Code Requirements for Electrified Hardware

This webinar was presented on June 18th, 2020 – click here to view the recording.  If you have viewed the live or recorded webinar, I’d love your feedback (the survey is here)!

The model codes that are widely used in the U.S. include sections addressing various applications for electrified hardware and access control systems. The code requirements differ depending on the type of system and the adopted code. This webinar will be the first in a series related to electrified hardware, covering the types of hardware and how the codes may affect them.

How do you know whether to choose a fail safe or fail secure lockset? What’s the difference between controlled egress and free egress locks? Are you confident that you’re specifying, supplying, or installing code-compliant systems? This webinar will help fill in the gaps.  There will be time for Q&A at the end of the webinar.

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.

Webinar 4 – Decoded: Touchless Solutions for Healthy Environments

This webinar was presented on July 21st, 2020 – click here to view the recording. 

With the increased focus on how to limit the spread of germs, many facility managers are considering their options for touchless operation of doors.  Changes may include installing automatic operators, updating actuators and access control readers, or adding new door pulls or lever modifications.  As always, it’s critical to ensure that egress, fire protection, and accessibility are not overlooked.  Although the current model codes do not include specific requirements for touchless hardware applications, there are many sections of the codes and standards that impact the selection and installation of these products.  This webinar will cover code requirements related to automatic operators and contactless access control, as well as accessibility considerations for new hands-free door pull designs.  There will be time for Q&A at the end of the webinar.

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.
