Door Release Systems

There are two main types of system to choose form - door guards and door retainers - and our team of experts are on hand to advise on which is the most suitable for your situation.

Dorgard Door Retainers

Wedging open fire doors is illegal and dangerous, the Dorgard provides a cost effective wireless solution for legally holding open fire doors in any position. It is suitable for commercial applications, such as offices, care homes, guest houses and hotels, that have an automatic fire detection system installed and work with that alarm system to provide an effective and safe solution.

The unit can be installed in under five minutes and can be setup to automatically release fire doors when the alarm sounds. An automatic night time release facility improves access for wheelchair users in line with the DDA. The system complies with BSEN 1155 and is approved by the Fire Brigade.

Radio and hard-wired versions are also available, please contact us for more information.

Helpful Hint
Dorgard door retainers will only work with an audible alarm system - please speak to one of our advisors who will be able to help you choose the right solution for your needs.

Door Closers

Door closers are designed to close fire doors once they have been opened and help limit the spread of fire throughout a building. They are available in a number of different formats to suit all applications and come with either a rated or adjustable strength to cater for different sizes and weights of doors.
