ASSA ABLOY Academy Newsletter Issue 3 May 2022

Welcome to the May Edition of the ASSA ABLOY Academy Newsletter

This month we’re focusing on why it’s time to upgrade your openings. Code updates, new expectations, and enhanced workplace, healthcare, education, and other public spaces are all catalysts driving door, door hardware, and access upgrades today. We’ll point you to the ASSA ABLOY resource that has the full low-down.

We also want you to meet Katie Flower, ASSA ABLOY Academy’s effervescent training specialist whose wealth of knowledge and passion for all things related to building codes and openings makes her an extremely important resource to tap into.

See her at work as we introduce “Code Corner with Katie”, her video series that features short informative clips on a variety of code and compliance topics. In this issue, you’ll be able to click and find out “Where Exit Devices Are Really Required”. We’ll post a new video in each upcoming month of the Academy newsletter from here on out.

To give yourself plenty of time to register and plan, check out the complete calendar of in-person and virtual (online) Academy training events for May, June, and July, as well as our featured product courses.

Enjoy! And thanks for subscribing!

Meet Katie Flower

Katie has been with ASSA ABLOY 16 years and on the training team the last five. But that’s just scratching the surface of her long career in the openings industry. It started back in 1984 right as she was setting out to put her degree in architecture to work. Her first interview turned out to be at a door hardware company that needed a detailer and estimator. Hired on the spot, she says she fell in love with doors on day one. Her infatuation hasn’t waned since.
