This course serves as an introduction to the International Code Council (ICC)/International Building Codes (IBC) 2018 Electronic Locking Hardware Codes. To begin, focus will be on delayed egress and codes for maglock installations, which will be followed by less common installations, such as controlled egress, stairwells, and elevator lobbies. We will identify key sections, chapters, sections, and appendices for future lookup and reference, as well as links to the online code books. This class is eligible for 1 credit hour: attendees may receive a certificate of completion (as requested).
By completing this course, attendees should be able to:
- Locate the ICC and NFPA Codes online.
- Provide a basic overview of delayed egress codes.
- Recall the two code standards when installing a maglock on a door to control access.
- Explain the basics of access control door setup up for controlled egress, stairwell, and elevator lobbies.
