In thousands of buildings, fire doors are routinely propped open with wedges, fire extinguishers, etc. This is in direct contravention of UK Fire Safety Regulations. In the event of a fire this hazardous practice will almost certainly guarantee that the fire spreads more quickly, causing more damage and putting people’s lives at risk.


The Dorgard Series offers the simplest and most cost-effective way of legally holding open fire doors in any position and automatically releasing them when the fire alarm sounds. The Dorgard series of self-contained release devices (SCRD’s) provides a wire-free solution for all types of buildings, environments and applications.


The Dorgard Series is acknowledged as established technology for the widest range of environments, including care homes, hotels, schools, hospitals and places of work. As with all fire safety devices a Fire Risk Assessment should be carried out prior to installation of Dorgard.


Dorgard is the simple, reliable acoustic device that holds a fire door open in any position and automatically releases the fire door when the fire alarm sounds. Inexpensive to buy, Dorgard can be installed in under 5 minutes. No writing is required as the unit is battery operated and is affixed to the bottom of the fire door using 4 screws. By employing proven micro-controller technology, Dorgard’s plunger releases when the fire alarm sounds.
