Lauris Freidenfelds, Telgian Engineering & Consulting Vice President, Security Risk Consulting recently shared his extensive security expertise with Campus Safety magazine in the article, “Keeping Your Campus Secure: Strategies for Managing Access Control and Door Hardware.” In the piece, Freidenfelds explored the essential systems and mechanical and electronic locking technology and the design concepts involving door hardware.
“With the expansion of security considerations in the past decade, and the increasing number of people designing technology, door-locking systems and security system coordination can be easily overlooked,” says Freidenfelds.
The article provides an in-depth look at mechanical locks and keys basics, key management, electronic door hardware, door design impact on operations and maintenance, and more.
“Security integrators should coordinate door hardware and security systems for optimal results. Proper planning and coordination in the design phase can prevent poor performance when the facility is in operation,” he says. “And it helps to understand the basics of mechanical locks and electronic locks.”
