Fire doors proved to be a hindrance
Ken Birch, Health and Safety Consultant for Risk Assessment Solutions Ltd, found that his customers were having problems with heavy fire doors. He said: “It was a common occurrence that interior fire doors were being wedged open to make access easier. The main entrance fire doors were being opened and closed hundreds of times a day and, as a result, were becoming damaged.”
The ideal solution
Ken continued: “We met Fireco at a Health and Safety show at the NEC. The team showed us Dorgard, and we thought it would be the ideal solution as it keeps fire doors open safely. We formed a Service Level Agreement and started to install Dorgard ourselves.”
Dorgard holds fire doors open. The wireless device continually listens for the sound of the alarm and automatically releases the doors to close in the event of a fire.
- Established and ongoing demand of Dorgard
- Risk Assessment Solutions Ltd is providing a solution to help their customers with their fire doors
- Reliable partnership with Fireco.
Dorgard has shown to be a profitable product for Risk Assessment Solutions. Ken said: “We have installed Dorgard in a number of nursing and residential care homes. The benefits to the residents are numerous: they hold fire doors open safely which keeps air circulating in the properties and makes access easier. The product has brought in more work and sales, and if I see a wedged fire door I recommend Dorgard. The install is quick and easy, I didn’t need any specific training as it was just common sense.”
“There is always support from Fireco, the team are very helpful and I recommend them.”
Complying with the relevant British and European standards, Dorgard is an ideal solution to the common problem of wedged open fire doors.
