The simple purpose of a fire door in everyday use is just the same as any other door. However, since a breakout of fire is never predictable, the fire door, unlike any other door, is then required to perform its main purpose as part of a building’s passive fire protection system, allowing all rooms to be separated off to contain a fire, protect the occupants and provide a safe, protected route of escape.
But although fire doors are a critical element in fire safety and a requirement in every commercial, public and multiple occupancy building, their importance in saving lives is often overlooked. No doubt we can all think of fire doors that we have seen wedged open or held open by an odd box or two! These doors would simply be unable to close in the event of a fire, thereby putting the building’s occupants at significant risk.
Fire Depot is pleased to announce that it has the answer to this problem with the launch of a new product. The Firechief Doorwarden is a wireless fire door stop which legally holds open a fire door - until the fire alarm sounds that is.
How the Firechief Doorwarden works
The Firechief Doorwarden acoustic fire door retainer is installed on the facing side of the fire door. Once installed you simply select the "learn alarm feature" and set off your fire alarm for approximately 20 seconds. The Doorwarden will then learn your fire alarm and activate.
And unlike other door closers on the market, the Firechief Door Warden only responds to the sound of the fire alarm. Its anti-vacuum technology means it will not respond to vacuum cleaners or other ambient noise.
Other features of the Firechief Doorwarden include:
