Safety Products - Dorgard automatically releases doors in case of fire

DorGard Fire Door Retainers

A closed fire door is an effective barrier against fire, protecting property and people's lives. Wedging open fire doors is illegal and dangerous, putting organisations at risk of prosecution.








Dorgard is a simple, reliable device that holds a fire door open in any position and then automatically releases the door should a fire alarm sound.

Inexpensive and quick and easy to install, Dorgard simply screw fits to the bottom of the chosen door in a matter of minutes with no risk to the fire door's integrity.

- Fast, automatic fire door release on alarm

- Easy, foot-operated manual release / adjustment operation

- Automatic night-time release facility

- Reliable, acoustic detection     







- Integral power-on LED indicator

- Low battery, automatic door release

- Optional floor plate for especially heavy doors / slippery floor surfaces

- Complies fully with all relevant British Standards, EC Directives and UK Workplace Regulations (Fire Precautions) 1997

The unit's rubber plunger/stopper is in contact with the floor and, unlike magnetic retainers, can hold the door open in any selected position. When a fire alarm sounds, Dorgard's integral audio-electronic device signals the plunger stopper to retract and releases the door to close. Dorgard is battery operated so there is no need for complex and expensive wiring.

Use of this product is endorsed by Fire Authorities throughout the UK

Ideal for use in Hotels, Care Homes, schools, museums and gallery's, in fact any building open to the public
