Dorgard -Door Retainers

Dorgard is a wire-free fire door retainer that allows you to secure fire doors open legally. On ‘hearing’ the fire alarm sound the system automatically releases the door to prevent the spread of fire.

We’ve all seen, or have been guilty of, wedging open a fire door with a fire extinguisher, chair or box. Dorgard now allows you to do this safely and legally.

You can use the system to hold a fire door open 24 hours a day. However, it is recommended that you close fire doors at night. You can set each system to release the doors at preset times.

Available in a choice of colours it is ideal for all working environments:

  • local Authorities
  • education
  • care homes
  • hotels
  • offices
  • retail

The benefits of Dorgard are:

  • makes access easy
  • no more struggling with heavy fire doors
  • closes automatically on the sound of the alarm
  • improves ventilation within a building
  • no wires for an easy fit and maintenance
  • works with your existing fire alarm system

How it works:

  • Dorgard is wire free and powered by batteries.
  • the press down plunger will hold the fire door open at any angle.
  • Dorgard continually monitors for the sound of the fire alarm.
  • if the fire alarm sounds the plunger will release and allow the door to fully close.
