Product description

The Dorgard is a safe and legal solution that allows you to hold your fire doors open safely, while automatically closing them in the event of a fire. This allows for better wheelchair access, ventilation and all-round convenience without jeopardising safety or breaking the law. Dorgard has a rubber stopper which remains in contact with the floor and, unlike magnetic fire door retainers, the Dorgard can hold the door open in any selected position. When the fire alarm sounds, the integral audio-electronic device inside the Dorgard signals and the rubber stopper retracts, allowing the door to close normally. Please note that your alarm's sound level has to be higher than 65dB at the location of the door to allow the Dorgard to pick up the alarm. This is also the required alarm sound level for population areas according to BS5839-1:2002 (clause 16.2).
