Access Webinar: Life/Safety Codes

Access Control types may find this useful:

Allegion's code expert Lori Greene will be running some inexpensive webinars next month on Building Codes and how they affect access designs. (You may remember we covered Lori's blog in our The Best Security Manufacturer Blog? post.)

She lists the agenda here:

Classes cover the following subject areas:

  • Accessibility Requirements – including clear opening width, hardware operation, opening force, closing speed, automatic operators, flush bottom rails, thresholds, and vision lite requirements
  • Fire Door Assemblies – including purpose of fire doors, fire test methods, closing and latching requirements, clearances, astragals and smokeseal, fire exit hardware, field modifications, flush bolts and coordinators, glazing, signage, and fire door assembly inspection requirements
  • Egress and Life Safety – including occupancy types, opening protectives, means of egress, hardware operation, panic hardware, impact-resistant glazing, luminous egress path markings, and door swing
  • Codes for Electrified Hardware – including electric latch retraction, delayed egress locks, access-controlled egress doors, electromagnetically locked egress doors, I-2 special egress locks, elevator lobby egress, and stairwell reentry

Classes will be held September 17, September 24, October 1, and October 8 at 11 a.m. Eastern. Each class will be recorded and available online in case you have a scheduling conflict.

She lists cost at $100, but if you become a member of Center for Campus Fire Safety (the sponsor) for a yearly membership of $40, the webinars are free.
