Fire Safety and Evacuation Equipment




Dorgard is a safe and legal solution that allows fire doors to be held open safely, but providing protection from fire, complying with fire regulations and maintaining compartmentalisation by automatically closing them in the event of a fire.

Dorgard is the reliable choice for holding fire doors open at any angle and automatically releases the door when a fire alarm sounds thereby maintaining compartmentalisation as required under fire regulations..


  • Easier access for wheelchair users and mobility impaired staff
  • Provides ventilation
  • Helps to reduce the spread of germs and viruses such as coronavirus by reducing the number of hard surfaces that need to be touched

Method of operation:

Dorgard is fitted with a rubber plunger which allows the door to be held open at any angle, unlike many magnetic fire door retainers which can only hold the door open fully against a wall. When a fire alarm sounds, the integral audio-electronic device inside the Dorgard causes the plunger to retract, allowing the fire door to close. Battery powered and easy to install, the Dorgard can operate alongside any existing fire alarm system currently in place, providing that your alarm’s sound level is at least 65dB at the location of the door.
