Dorgard is an acoustically activated fire door release device. Dorgard can hold fire doors open in any position and release them automatically should a fire alarm sound.
It is illegal to leave fire doors open but many people prop them open in Summer to let cool air into the building. However it can be a fire hazard - if a fire occurs, an open door lets fire spread more quickly. In these cases, the Dorgard is extremely useful. Upon hearing an alarm sound, the fire door automatically closes thus safeguarding you from danger. This product complies with BSI standards and is accredited with BS EM 1155.
