Swansea, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 January 2013
Intended to blend seamlessly with their surroundings, the products in the Dorgard Effects range feature the popular Dorgard fire door retainer housed in a range of new materials. Discount Fire Supplies have selected the Ash, Oak and Chrome models for inclusion in their Fire Door Holders website category.
The addition of this range compliments the existing choice of Dorgard colours, including Red, Brown, Black and White, which have been available on discountfiresupplies.co.uk for some time.
It is hoped that these new variations of the classic Dorgard fire door retainer will allow customers to create more coordinated environments without any compromise on reliability.
Each Dorgard Effects fire door retainer is priced at £162.00 (£135.00 +VAT) while the traditional colours are priced at £118.80 (£99.00 +VAT) each.
There are a number of reasons a fire door may need to be propped open – this could be to allow the free passage of foot traffic or to aid air circulation on hot days. However, it is illegal to use anything other than a recognised device to do so (in the UK this directly contravenes fire regulations). Complying with BS EN 1155 and BS 7273-4 Category B, Dorgard fire door retainers are an essential purchase for anyone looking to hold open fire doors safely and legally.
Wire-free and easy to install, Dorgard devices use audio sensors to detect the building's fire alarm (any sound above a loud 65dB). To hold open the door, the user simply has to hold the door at the desired angle and push down the retaining foot. Upon 'hearing' a continual alarm, the Dorgard will release the retaining foot and allow the fire door to close under the pressure of the door's closer, thus helping to prevent the spread of fire throughout the building.
Fireco, manufacturer of Dorgard, are just one of many fire equipment designers who are turning their attention to the need for more attractive fire equipment. As expectations of design rise in this field, Discount Fire Supplies expects to see more and more manufacturers producing fire equipment has a strong focus on aesthetics.
