TRD provides code certificate

The tent rental industry faces many challenges concerning permitting of tents when presenting projects to code officials and fire marshals. In response to members’ requests, the Tent Rental Division (TRD) of IFAI is helping to address these issues by supplying a Code of Ethics Certificate that contains the “TRD Approved” seal, a symbol recognized in the permitting community, and explains for code officials and customers the significance of being a member of TRD, the industry’s trade association. 

“Customers and code officials are asking for such a document which will help our local rental companies distinguish themselves as companies who put safety first in product and installation,”  says Alex Renaud, Fiesta Tents Ltd., Saint-Laurent, Quebec, Canada. 

TRD’s mission, “to promote safety, quality and creativity in the use of rental tents,” is explained and member companies’ commitment to quality products and services reinforced.

The one-page certificate is available for download from the members-only section of
