April 16 Webinar: Panic Hardware – When, Where, and Why?

April 16, 2020 - April 16, 2020
Free webinar from Allegion's Lori Greene on Thursday, April 16
Panic Hw

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.
