Dorgard SmartSound holds your fire doors open legally and safely, releasing them to close when the fire alarm sounds. It has improved noise recognition with SmartSound technology, so can distinguish between your fire alarm and common background noises, such as vacuum cleaners.
Legally holding your fire door open protects it from damage and prolongs its life. As the door is automatically released when the alarm sounds, the spread of fire and smoke is prevented.
Fire Door Safety Week runs from the 24th to the 30th September 2018. It raises awareness of the critical role of fire doors, particularly of the importance of good installation and maintenance. Building owners and users should check the operation and condition of their fire doors and report those that are unsatisfactory.
