Fires which occur in the home or workplace not only leave widespread destruction in their wake, but the spread of fire and smoke can cause severe danger to health or even loss of life. A fire door should never be wedged open. Not only is this action illegal, but it’s highly dangerous too. It is widely accepted that occasionally it is necessary for doors to be held open for various reasons, and that is why the Dorgard fire door retainer has been developed.

Automatic Fire Door Retainer

The Dorgard was created to allow you to legally hold open fire doors in any position, improving access within the premises, in line with the Equality Act 2010. It is suitable for any building that has an automatic fire detection system. The device works by automatically closing the door as soon as the fire alarm sounds, preventing the spread of fire and smoke. It also has an automatic night time release facility, giving you peace of mind that all fire doors are closed after a pre-specified time.

Sound Activated by 65db or Higher

The innovative and wireless fire safety device contained in a Dorgard listens for a continuous fire alarm of 65 dBA or higher.

When the fire alarm sounds, it activates immediately, closing the fire door and providing the level of protection needed within the premises.

The Dorgard is CE marked, complies with BS EN 1155 and is accepted by the UK Fire and Rescue Service, making it ideal for offices, care homes, schools and hotels.

No Wires, Battery Powered

The Dorgard is easy to install and can fitted in a matter of minutes onto all fire doors. Because it is battery powered and wireless, it’s incredibly low maintenance, and much like a smoke alarm, an annual check of the batteries is required to ensure full working order.

Variety of Colour Options

Available in a range of colours, the Dorgards have been specifically developed to match to most internal decor with options in plain colours such as white, brown and red, as well as wood finishes and brass or brushed aluminium.
