Dorgard has a rubber plunger/stopper which remains in contact with the floor and, unlike magnetic fire door retainers, can hold the door open in any selected position. When a fire alarm sounds, the integral audio-electronic device inside the Dorgard signals the plunger to retract, allowing the fire door close normally (Dorgard will release after approximately 14 seconds). Dorgard is battery powered, so there is no need for complex and expensive wiring into the building's fire alarm system. This means that the Dorgard can be installed and operates alongside any existing fire alarm system currently in place. Please note that your alarm's sound level has to be higher than 65dB at the location of the door to allow the Dorgard to pick up the alarm up. This is also the required alarm sound level for populated areas according to BS5839-1:2002 (Clause 16.2).
