The first hour is on ADA-compliant door hardware and is titled ADA Code Jeopardy 2.  Allegion's original Code Jeopardy game was so popular that participants requested more, so Code Jeopardy 2 was born. This course is delivered in an interactive game format. It discusses ADA requirements, occupancy classification codes, fire and life safety codes that affect openings, and the hardware components that help make openings compliant.

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Recognize ADA opening obstacles that door hardware can overcome

  • List code requirements that affect hardware for openings in a means of egress

  • Specify opening products that meet fire code requirements

  • 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


The second hour will be an examination of the new Poly-Ash category of exterior trim products as it relates to other types of trim, specifically around the areas of installation, longevity, maintenance, and sustainability.  Each presentation will offer an 1 hour HSW learning units. 


Each presentation offers participants 1 AIA HSW credit.   Box lunches will be provided.  This lunch and learn is free to all current AIAGR members and students.
