Fire safety is of the utmost importance. Fire in a home or business can be devastating, resulting in severe damage to property and health – or even in loss of life. A functional fire door is essential to fire safety and must never be wedged open – it’s not only dangerous, it’s illegal. However, there are times when doors must be held open for a variety of reasons. That’s why we created the Dorgard fire door retainer.

An Automatic Fire Door Retainer.

The Dorgard device allows fire doors to be held open in any position, safely and legally, improving access within the building in compliance with the Equality Act 2010. Dorgard automatically closes the door as soon as a fire alarm is sounded, which prevents flames and smoke from spreading and allows more time for occupants to evacuate as quickly as possible. Dorgard is also fitted with an automatic night time release function, so you can pre-set a time for fire doors to close when the building is unoccupied.


Sound Activated for Optimal Efficiency.

Dorgard’s innovative wireless technology listens for a continuous fire alarm signal of 65 dBA or higher. When a fire alarm sounds, Dorgard activates immediately to close the fire door and protect the premises.


Discreet Design and Colour Options.

The Dorgard has been specifically designed to harmonise with its surroundings, with no unsightly wires. Colour-match nearly any door in white, brown or red, or complement the decor with wood finishes, brass or brushed aluminium.


Resilient and Easy to Maintain.

Easily installed, the Dorgard can be fitted onto fire doors in a matter of minutes. Dorgard’s battery-powered and wireless operation ensures it is easy to maintain, much like a smoke alarm – an annual check of the batteries is all that is required.


Quality and Peace of Mind, Guaranteed.

Each Dorgard device comes with a free, 24-month manufacturer guarantee. What’s more, it has been tested to last twice as long, so you can rest assured your fire doors are functioning at a high standard. Dorgard is CE marked, fully compliant with BS EN 1155, and accepted by the UK Fire and Rescue Service.
