Safelincs Increases German Distribution of Dorgard

dorgard-fire-door-retainerThe Dorgard, a retrofit fire door retainer to allow fire doors to be held open safely, has long been a success in the UK. Well over 400000 units have been sold and have contributed to making UK businesses safer.

The European continent has also featured for many years in the expansion plan of the Dorgard, which is manufactured in the UK. Safelincs achieved Austrian TÜV certification in 2008, Italian certification in 2009 and became sole distributor for Germany, Austria and Italy in 2008/9.

With the introduction of a harmonised European standard for fire door retainers, the sales in Germany increased significantly. A further increase in customer awareness was achieved this year, when Gloria Germany started to sell the Dorgard through all its servicing centers and engineers.

London fire extinguisher servicing supported by new extinguisher servicing base

To improve flexibility and speed for our customers in London, we are opening a fire extinguisher servicing base on the 1st of February in Woking. The depot will be the base for our extinguisher servicing engineers in the London area and will further reduce response times in case of fire extinguisher emergency servicing and extinguisher installations. The depot will hold most of our various extinguisher ranges such as Safelincs, Ultrafire, Thomas Glover and Gloria fire extinguishers and therefore shorten delivery times for our customers. The head of the new Woking base, Anthony, stated that ‘improved response times will drive our extinguisher servicing business forward. We now offer not only the best prices for extinguishers, installations and servicing – we also can offer rapid response times in one of our key customer markets’
