On Thursday, May 13th, the New England Chapter of the Door & Hardware Institute will be holding our meeting at a new location – Vinny T’s in Dedham, Massachusetts. The meeting topic is fire door assembly inspection (FDAI), and many of the local fire door inspectors will be participating in the presentations. The format is “cracker-barrel” style, where there are 5 or 6 short (10-minute) presentations about various sub-topics, with time for Q&A.
The adoption and enforcement of annual inspections has begun across the country, and it’s in our best interest to understand the requirement. Some facilities are being proactive and having their doors inspected or learning how to conduct the inspections with their own personnel. An initial fire door inspection has already been included in some specifications, so if you’re local, come to the meeting and find out what it’s all about.
If you’re not in the Boston area but would like to host this type of meeting in your DHI chapter or learn more about fire door inspection, send me an email. For more information about FDAI, visit www.firedoorguide.com.
