November 14, 2001. Meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member Marks USA. Marks' National Sales Manager Bill Sporre and Mayflower Sales' Dave Akins presented product information about the i-Que series of access control locksets. 3½ years in development, they feature lifetime mechanical and electronics warrantees, modular construction, are grade 1 and ADA compliant, weatherized, and are available in cylindrical and tubular, shortly in mortise configuration. The cylindrical requires only a ¾" hole (for the wire raceway) in addition to a standard ANSI 115.18 prep, so installation is speedy. 64 users/64 audit trail events are standard (with expansion to 320 users/ 1,600 events), and other standard features include a real time clock (with automatic daylight saving time adjustment), multiple time zones, and is programmable by keypad or computer. 200 million combinations are available through the non-matrix keypad, and the locks are available to accept various IC configurations. Up- and down-loads are done by a secure infrared module. A very flexible system at an affordable price.
October 10, 2001. Meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member IR Security. Dom Cottone presented products under the umbrella name of "Locknetics On Board". He explained that Locknetics "brains" are part of Schlage, Von Duprin and other lines of Ingersol Rand. He showed videos showing the advantages of computer managed (CM) products, and how to program the lines of stand-alone access products using code, computer or Palm. Several optional features (such as SmarTime and audit trails of 1,000 actions) are now standard, and the locks are available in cylinderical, mortise and unit configurations, the mortise also available with a 1" automatic deadbolt. All come with Schlage Everest cylinders or no cylinders, and will accept any 1¼" cylinder. Also mentioned was the Readymount preassembled replacement door system. Many fine products for varied applications.
September, 2001 meeting was cancelled because of the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001.
June 21, 2001 (Thursday). Meeting sponsored by Medeco. Presented was the SiteLine standalone single-door access control lockset, which features an all-in-one key/electronic credential. This allows the same credential to operate both SiteLine locks and Medeco-keyed locks. The lockset features time-of-day zones, 800 event audit trail, 1200 user capability, first-in passage mode, etc. and battery operation for easy installation. The key bypass is available in either small- and large-format IC configurations. Programming is provided by special "transport" credentials, which are set up using Windows-based software. Locksets list for $800, software for $200, but the software will allow programming of any number of locksets. A flexible system with many unique uses.
May 9, 2001. Meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member Accredited Lock. Representative Norm Koller introduced factory representative Dave Bryant who presented products by RCI (formerly known as Rutherford Controls, Inc. He said that RCI used to be called Rutherford Controls, but it's still the same company. He demonstrated how the 8310 electromagnetic lock has a 1,500 lb. holding force, an adjustable bayonet keyhole mounting so supporting the magnet while mounting the bracket is not required, and plug-in wiring terminals for easy installation. Smaller magnets with reduced holding power for other applications were also mentioned. RCI also makes electric strikes, some with horizontal adjustment to accommodate sagging door or frames. Specialty locks for cabinets and glass doors were shown, as was a single-door access control system for a minimal price.
April 11, 2001. The meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member IR Security, and featured a product presentation of the Schlage Everest keying system. Representative John Bartolomeo explained that the old letter series ("C" being the most common) is now called "classic" and would continue to be supported. The Everest system features a patented undercut grove in the blank which engages a pin in the cylinder, resulting in increased security and restricted manufacture until 2017. These are available in both standard and Schlage-configuration interchangeable core, and Everest is also available in small format interchangeable core. These keys will not fit Primus cylinders, but there will be a future offering of a Primus Everest system. Representative Dom Cottone described how IR Safety and Security now covers eleven brand names, and that while product line names and manufacture may change, the products and product support will be enhanced under the ownership of Ingersoll-Rand.
March 31, 2001. Members traveled to the Master Locksmiths Association of New Jersey show, transportation courtesy of Corporate Member IR Security and admission courtesy of Corporate Member Accredited Lock.
February 15, 2001. NYAIL meeting sponsored by Corporate Member Fried Brothers Inc. A representative presented products of Jackson exit devices and Reese thresholds and weatherstrips. Shown were the Jackson 1200 series which retrofits the popular 10 series exit devices, but has a reduced silhouette for improved appearance and provides an increased door opening. Also shown were the 20 series for heavier duty applications, several floor closers, and a new surface mount closer.
January 10, 2001. The meeting was sponsored by Corporate Member MacKenzie Group, and representative Vincent Coniglio noted that he had made a Google search of his name, and the only hit which pertained to him was at NYAIL's web site, which referred to a presentation he had made some time ago. He thanked NYAIL for the exposure. This product presentation was of Corbin-Russwin Pyramid high security cylinders, which have a utility patent which expires in 2018, uses stainless steel pins, conforms to standard UL437 for pick and drill resistance, and have a 5 year warrantee. The product's unique feature is a conical spring-loaded pin which extends from the bottom of the blank which depresses a blocking plate in the cylinder. Without this pin, even properly cut blanks will not operate the cylinder. These cylinders also provide 7-pin security and masterkeying capabilities within a 6-pin length cylinder by reducing the spacing between pins, which allows this product to fit existing 6-pin interchangeable core housings. To prevent duplication, there is a required strong key control and owner acceptance policy which allows only authorized personnel to order keys and cylinders. Available in mortise, rim and interchangeable core configurations, use of these cylinders will spread as competing products' patents expire.
