Issue 5 July 2022

Welcome to the July Edition of Academy

And welcome to summer!

Specialty doors and their unique capabilities for attack resistance, acoustic protection and decorative applications are the main focus of this month’s edition.

We also highlight two free online courses that provide a deeper understanding of attack-resistant and acoustic control door solutions, including an impressive demonstration video of bullet and attack tests of ASSA ABLOY specialty door assemblies.

This month’s Code Corner with Katie segment addresses “What is a Means of Egress”.

You’ll get to meet Rose Cliff-Olsen, our Door Group Training Manager. Rose has nearly 40 years of industry experience with doors, frames, hardware, and specialty products. She knows her way around the kitchen, too.

Plan ahead and check out the complete calendar of upcoming in-person and virtual (online) Academy training events scheduled through September. You’ll want to register soon while space is still available.

Enjoy the warmth of the summer sun while you read this month’s edition! And thanks again for subscribing!

Specialty Doors Require Special Consideration

ASSA ABLOY Speciality Doors include such a range of robust door types, applications, and technical details, including ratings and certifications, that the process of choosing the right fit can become intimidating and challenging to navigate. Specialty doors can also be expensive due to the distinct designs and higher degree of performance. Subsequently, it's important to be judicious in determining the most appropriate and economical solution, and wise, if not critical, to lean on us for guidance.

Acoustic and Attack Resistant Door Solutions

With this month's story on speciality doors and hardware that covers such critical needs as attack resistance and acoustic protection, we wanted to provide you the opportunity to do a deeper dive into these topics by suggesting a couple of excellent online courses available through ASSA ABLOY Academy. Both are short, and more importantly, they're free. Each one runs about 30 minutes total, including a brief quiz. And since they're online, you can complete them at your own pace.
