Fireco - The manufacturers of wireless fire safety products
Since the 1980’s Fireco have been innovators in developing and manufacturing fire alarm listening products that make life a little easier and are compliant to all fire safety regulations. Inspired by a dancing flower toy that would move only when music was played close by, Executive Chairman Neil Purssey thought if a simple toy can respond to a noise stimulus then why couldn’t a door wedge respond and release to the sound of a fire alarm?
With this idea came the first Fireco product; the Dorgard™ Fire Door Retainer, which legally holds fire doors open but will automatically close when a fire alarm is sounding. Completely wireless the Dorgard™ Fire Door Retainer is easy to install, will work with almost all fire doors and is available in a number of colours or with brass or aluminium covers to suit any decor.
Fireco also manufacture the Deafgard, a portable wireless device that alerts deaf or hard of hearing people that a fire alarm has been activated. Under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) hoteliers have a legal obligation to make provisions for the deaf and hard of hearing and the Deafgard meets those requirements. Using a combination of a vibrating pad and a bright flashing strobe light the wireless device will alert the guest that a fire alarm has been activated.
