We would recommend as with any other fire safety device, a Fire Risk Assessment should be carried out on the Dorgard before installing this product.

The Dorgard works by listening out for a repeated fire alarm sound (65 decibels or greater). As soon as it notices the sound, around 14 seconds after it will release the fire door, and will shut from the pressure of the overhead door closer in order to prevent smoke and fire spreading throughout a building. As an additional safety feature, the Dorgard will release at a general noise level of 80 decibels. This is because if the level of noise in the building exceeds 80 decibels, it is unlikely that you will be able to hear an alarm sound of 65 decibels, so the Dorgard releases the fire door.

Being wireless, the Dorgard does not need any wiring into the main fire alarm system of the building, allowing there to be minimum disruption and quick and easy installation.

What makes a Dorgard different from an electro-magnetic retainer is that it is self-contained and battery operated. It requires no wiring and only takes around 5 minutes to set-up, and is affixed to the fair door via four screws. Insert the two C-size batteries supplied, and the Dorgard is ready to go.
