Electro-Mechanical Door Retainers
Fire Doors are an integral part of any fire strategy. Their presence will ensure the containment of fire, smoke & fumes but they are inherently large and obstructive. Furthermore; their safe operation is compromised as soon as they are ‘wedge’ open. This single action can contribute to the spread of fire and fumes throughout a building which can lead to critical consequences.
Electro-Mechanical Door Retainers are the recognised means of allowing fire doors to close when the fire detection & alarm system is activated. Door Détente Systems keep doors ‘open’ to allow free access by personnel and free flow of air for comfort ventilation without compromising a Building’s Fire Strategy. These simple devices allow the doors to close to a ‘safe’ position and prevent the spread of smoke & flames.
