JOIN DASMA

Eligibility

Are you eligible for DASMA membership?

DASMA has three kinds of members: Active Members, Associate Members, and Professional Members affiliated with our Rolling Door Division.

To be eligible to join the ACTIVE MEMBERS of the Gate Operator & Access Control Point Systems Division, Commercial & Residential Garage Door Division, High Performance Door Division, Door Operator & Electronics Division, or Rolling Door Division, your company must be a business entity, or a division or subsidiary of a corporation, that:

1.  Has a regularly established place of business.
2.  Has financial responsibility sufficient to carry on the business.
3.  Is engaged, as its primary business, in the manufacture of garage doors, rolling doors, fire doors, grilles, counter shutters, sheet doors, high performance doors, garage door or gate operators, electronic accessories for garage door or gate operators, or access control point systems.
4.  Is a manufacturer. An entity is considered to be a manufacturer of a designated finished product
if it designs, manufactures, and assembles components into the designated finished product. Mere assembly of components purchased from others, without significant value-added design and manufacturing, will not make an entity a manufacturer.
