- Assist with germ control
Our products hold fire doors open compliantly and close the door automatically when the alarm sounds. Keeping fire doors open reduces the number of times people need to touch the door handles, which reduces cross-contamination and the spread of germs.
- Comply with high risk areas
Our systems are compliant with HTM 05:02 and are suitable for Category A or areas that are considered high risk.
- Improve access
Our products can improve access making it easier for staff, residents and goods to move through the building. Removing issues with heavy fire doors is empowering for people using the building who are disabled or have mobility issues.
- Install with ease
Our products are easy to fit, with some of them taking only 5 minutes to install. This minimises disruption to staff and residents and allows you to carry on with the daily running of the building.
- Maintain building integrity
Due to our products being wireless, there are minimal changes to the appearance and structure of the building.

Older people are often more vulnerable when it comes to accidents and emergencies which places huge importance on fire safety in care homes. Fire doors are essential for fire safety, but in the daily lives of care home residents, they can be problematic.
Sheltered housing residents sometimes damage or disable fire door closers to make them easier to open. This is unsafe and against fire regulations. What is the solution?
There are many challenges to managing fire safety in a care home. Our Fireco guide offers advice to simplify safety and easily stay compliant with fire regulations.
