The Dorgard Fire Door Retainer uses a foot operated rubber plunger / stopper to hold and release the door. When the plunger is depressed, it remains in contact with the floor to hold the door open. Unlike magnetic fire door retainers, the Dorgard can hold the door open at any angle. The device is always listening, so when a fire alarm sounds (for 14 continuous seconds), Dorgard will automatically release the plunger, allowing the fire door to close normally so proper fire compartmentation can be achieved. These retainers can be installed and operated alongside any new and existing fire alarm system.

Please Note: Alarm sound level at the door's location must be higher than 65 dB to ensure that the Dorgard will detect and respond. This is also the required alarm sound level for populated areas according to BS 5839-1.
