Product Overview

Wedging open fire doors is illegal and dangerous. However, Dorgard is a safe legal and cost effective solution. The DorGard series provides a wire-free solution for legally holding open fire doors in any position. The standard Door Guard is suitable for normal environments, such as offices, care homes, hotels and the like, which have automatic fire detection system installed, since it operates when the fire alarm sounds.

How Does it Work

Dorguard is a simple, reliable electronic device that holds a fire door open in any position and then automatically releases the door should a fire alarm sound. The unit’s rubber plunger/stopper is in contact with the floor and unlike other magnetic devices can hold the door in any selected position.  When a fire alarm sounds the internal audio-electronic device signals the plunger to retract and the door is able to close, using the door closer fitted to the door.  Dorgard is a battery operated device and there is no need for complex and expensive wiring.

Fast, Simple and Effective

Dorgard is quick, easy and fast to install and is already effective in thousands of buildings throughout theUK. Dorgard is available in four different colours; black, white, mahogany or red (these other three finishes can be found in the related products) and is an inexpensive solution for auto hold-open fire doors.
