Allmar is a recognized champion of the Door and Hardware Institute’s Fire and Egress Door Assembly Inspection (FDAI) program
Ongoing inspection and maintenance of fire and egress doors by a skilled professional helps prevent loss of life and reduces property damage. Allmarʼs certified Fire Door Assembly Inspectors (CFDAIs) work to create safe and secure environments for your new or already established building. Allmar is a recognized champion of the Door and Hardware Institute’s Fire and Egress Door Assembly Inspection (FDAI) program, combining education, certification, risk management, and advocacy.
Based on National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) standards, documented inspections for fire-rated door assemblies are required on an annual basis. According to the NFPA, these inspections can only be facilitated and signed off by a person with the proper knowledge and understanding of the operating components of the speciﬁc door. At Allmar, we go to great lengths to meet this requirement by enlisting Allmar staff with the credentials necessary for inspections and signing off on a record of inspection. The FDAI program also provides speciﬁc training in security and safety for universities, schools, and hospitals, where casualties and damage can be greatest.
