Luncheon - Architectural Hardware ... Explained

February 12, 2015 - 11:30
Sandman Hotel, Vancouver

Presented by April Wells, Allegion Canada Inc.

In an ever more complicated openings environment, there are many considerations required to be able to apply the correct hardware for your project. Some of the questions are:

What is the overall process in evaluating hardware choices?

When or when not to use cylinder or mortise locks?

How does ANSI/BHMA testing apply to door hardware?

What is the best way to secure an opening?

How does one integrate electronic access control systems?

April will provide a comprehensive overview of the Architectural hardware openings environment from a mechanical, electronic and electrified hardware point of view and how to apply them to various projects and applications.
