DHI CERTIFIED FIRE DOOR ASSEMBLY INSPECTORS (CFDAIs)

Based on National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA 80) provisions which have been incorporated into the National Building Code of Canada, documented inspections for fire-rated door assemblies are required on an annual basis. According to NFPA 80, 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 have staff with the FDAI and CFDAI certifications who will conduct fire door assembly inspection for the building owner, assess and recommend any required updates to your doors or hardware if necessary, and provide and sign off on the record of inspection to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

DID YOU KNOW – Doors that do not work as designed may prevent safe egress and may not properly contain fires. Improperly operating fire doors, especially swinging doors, actually retard the operation of sprinkler systems. Swinging fire doors are one of the most common methods of egress from a burning building. Doors that do not work as designed may be a security threat.

Proper inspection of fire rated doors:

  • Provides particular security and safety in universities, schools, and hospitals, where casualties and damage can be greatest
  • Offers an extra level of security for residents of high-rise offices, apartments, and condominiums

WHAT AN INSPECTOR LOOKS FOR

  • Damage to the door and frame
  • Security of glazing if present
  • Security, alignment and operability of the door, frame, hinges, and hardware
  • Missing or broken parts
  • Door clearances
  • Properly operating self-closing device
  • Operation of a coordinator, if installed
  • Operation of latching hardware
  • Presence of auxiliary hardware items which may interfere with door operation
  • Illegal field modifications
  • Presence and integrity of gasketing and edge seals
