Have you ever struggled with getting the right architectural hardware on your job? Ever written a spec and been told at the final inspection that the hardware in place is the wrong type for the application and doesn’t meet code? Ever installed hardware only to have the inspector tell you that its not at the right height? Who among us has taken the time to read the current code page for page and fully understand all the hardware requirements for all applications? If the answer is “not me”, then we have just the program for you!
Don Cherry, Jr., PSP, CCPR, is an EAC Sales Consultant for Allegion, PLC (formerly Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies), and has been in the Security Hardware and Locksmith industries for over 30 years. Don specializes in electrified and electronic hardware, and is a certified as a PSP, (Physical Security Professional) with ASIS (American Society of Industrial Security), and a CCPR, (Certified Construction Product Representative), with the Constructions Specifications Institute, and is a member of the Door Hardware Institute.
Don will highlight the major aspects of current codes and regulations pertaining to architectural hardware, in a fun, interactive format mirroring the game show “Jeopardy!”. Participants will form teams and try to be the first to answer (in the form of a question of course) facts about hardware. Fabulous prizes may (or may not) be awarded to the winners, depending on whether we can talk anyone into donating them. Each participant is guaranteed to win the fabulous prize of knowledge.
The program is approved by the AIA for 1 HSW credit. After participating in this program, attendees will:
1. Recognize ADA opening obstacles that door hardware can overcome. 2. List code requirements that affect hardware for openings in a means of egress. 3. Specify opening products that meet fire code requirements. 4. Discuss the testing of door and walls when they are comprised of large expanses of glazing or where a large part
is comprised of protectives.
None of us know all we could about door hardware, but here’s your opportunity to come away knowing more than you did, and to have a fun time learning. So come on out to Worcester CSI for the Building Hardware Code Jeopardy program, unlock your knowledge and open new doors in this area! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSI members are experts in building construction and the materials used therein and are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information.
