Qualified Hardware Installer Program

Minimize risk and gain a competitive advantage

Through Intertek’s Qualified Hardware Installer Program you can be certified to properly prepare Intertek certified fire doors bearing the Warnock Hersey Mark in the field for the installation of specific ASSA ABLOY locks and accessories while remaining compliant with NFPA 80.

The Qualified Hardware Installer Program is part of Intertek’s Qualified Personnel (IQP) Program and is designed to bring peace of mind to AHJ’s by independently qualifying personnel to ensure that their installations meet industry requirements.

AHJs and Facility Managers can rest easy knowing that the Installer they hired has completed the Proctored Exam necessary through ASSA ABLOY Academy to be successful in their field. All IQPs apply Intertek program specific labels, participate in regular audits, and stay current with training and recertification.

Those who successfully complete the prerequisites and the proctored exam, which includes routing a door for a mortise lock, become qualified and are able to install ASSA ABLOY approved locks in Intertek certified fire doors bearing the Warnock Hersey Mark on the jobsite.
