1 AIA Health/Safety/Welfare Learning Unit
Speaker:  Betsy O’Day, Business Development Manager, Nostalgic Warehouse

Course Description:
Responsible design work demands good specifications and a knowledge of options for all types of architectural elements, including door hardware, such as locks and hinges. This session will provide a brief history of locks and hinges; an overview of five different lock types; a summary of lock operation and handing by different users, such as right-hand and left-hand applications; and a review of appropriate sizes and weights for various doors. The presentation will address ANSI standards for finishes and cycle-testing and UL fire ratings. Different types of keying systems including high security and electronic keys will be discussed. The session will conclude with questions and answers.

Learning Objectives:
After attending this session, participants will know or do the following:

  • Compare and contrast tubular cylindrical, mortise, multipoint and rim locks. 
  • Assess and apply size and weight considerations for common door sizes and cycles.
  • Consult ANSI standards, UL ratings and building codes when specifying hinges and locks.
  • Consider the range of users when selecting locks and hinges for a variety of installations.
