Factory representatives Steven Seif and George Howell presented many high security products, including vandal resistant mechanical and electromechanical locks. All featured "no prior knowledge" operation, and some were dual locking with magnetic locks in addition to mechanical locking. The pure mechanical type included multiple point locking and automatic deadbolt types, and panic police locks to legally lock emergency exits. They also showed locks specially designed for the specific needs of the NYC Transit Authority and the US Postal Service. A specialty item also shown was the Securiguard which prevents cylinder vandalism by covering lock cylinders with a shield locked by a magnetic key. Overall, high security for many applications!

September 13, 2000. NYAIL meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member IR Security & Safety, featuring Locknetics & Recognition Systems. Manufacturer's representative Dom Cottone explained that Locknetics is using the name IR Security and Safety, since they are part of Ingersoll Rand. IR Security and Safety also includes Falcon, Schlage, LCN, Dor-o-matic, Glynn-Johnson, Ives, Von Duprin, Monarch, Recognition Systems, and SteelCraft. He described the various applications of their LockLink access control program, which is available in DOS and Windows versions. The CM lock is available with use with a proximity card, magnetic stripe card, Dallas Chip, or mechanical key. Their magnetic lock line has been redesigned. Most are based on the "390" series mag lock. He also mentioned two web sites that should be checked out: locknetics.com , and handreader.com He expected some info on training seminars to be available soon.
June 14, 2000. The meeting was sponsored by Ace Lock and Security Supply and LCN closers. Factory reps. George Nimee and Nolan Thrope conducted basic door and automatic operator installation training. The initial idea was that door closers are really door controllers, and that if a closer fails, other parts of the opening will fail as a consequence: locks, hinges, door, frame, so a heavy-duty (rated for longer life) closer is often cheaper in the end. Also described were the differences between high- and low-energy operators, pneumatic and electric types, and advantages of each. Adjustment of closers was covered in detail, and specific problems and solutions related to high wind conditions were also described. A presentation that will prove useful to many of our members.
