Dorgards are a cost effective way to hold open fire doors (or alternatively, if you don't already have self closers on your door - Freedor - may be preferable). Dorgards are self contained battery operated devices designed to hold open fire doors safely and effectively. They are easy to fit, just 4 screws hold it in position, and it's ready for immediate use.

Dorgards work by holding the door open with a plunger, which releases if the fire alarm activates. It will also work with a domestic smoke alarm.

An LED flashing red light indicates that the unit is operational. In the event of low battery power or battery failure Dorgard releases allowing the door to close. In addition to this, the unit sounds a repeated warning and flashes an LED to indicate a low battery. Battery life usually exceeds 12 months.

The unit is powered by 2 x 'C' cell batteries (supplied) and even contains a timer which can be set to automatically release at one of three pre-determined times each night and will not 're-set' until the next morning. Dorgard can also be set to keep the door open continuously.

Dorgard can also be released by lightly kicking the plunger (if a floor plate is NOT in use) or by pushing the door in the open direction.

Dorgard has been installed in schools, theatres, hospitals and stately homes for many years and is the ideal solution for stopping the dangerous culture of wedging fire doors open with fire extinguishers or wedges etc. Dorgard has been accepted by fire brigades throughout the UK, and complies with BS EN 1155:1997.
