  • This battery-operated, self-contained device will safely and legally hold fire doors open without the risk of inadequate fire separation due to doors being wedged open in the event of a fire

What the Expert Says

The Safe and Legal Way to Hold Fire Doors Open
Fire doors are often propped open in many workplaces and buildings, but this is both poor housekeeping and an illegal practice which significantly increases the spread of fire. The Dorgard Fire Door Retainer has been included in our range as it offers a safe and legal way for you to hold fire doors open without compromising fire protection. It’s quick and simple to install and comes with the fixings needed to secure it to any fire door. When your alarm sounds over 65 decibels, Dorgard will release, allowing the fire door to close.
