The Dorgard Pro Fire Door Retainer System provides the ultimate blend of fire safety and convenience, allowing fire doors to be safely and legally held open while ensuring that they are closed in the event of a fire. The Dorgard Pro Transmitter will wirelessly trigger all Dorgard Pro Retainers to release, either from a wired connection to your fire alarm panel or acoustic activation at the sound of the alarm.
Following a FREE site survey to specify and design a suitable system for your premises, you will receive a full report and quotation. Dorgard Pro systems can control up to 500 retainers spread across up to 50 repeater units for full coverage.
Dorgard is a "Standard" category device under BS 7273-4 with testing & certification to BS EN 1155 and BS EN 1634. Quality and performance are guaranteed with a Dorgard.
Dorgard Pro Retainers feature a new 5 year "fit and forget" battery life while remaining in contact with the Transmitter to warn you of any faults, reducing maintenance costs.
Dorgard helps people maintain independence by keeping heavy fire doors open throughout the premises. Ideal for patients in care homes and hospitals as well as young children in schools.
Wedging open a fire door is illegal and aids the spread of fire. The Dorgard has been designed, tested, and certified to release during a fire alarm or fault, making it both safe and legal.
For fire alarm panels without a spare fire relay, the Dorgard Pro Transmitter can be installed in acoustic mode which listens for the sound of a fire alarm to trigger all retainers.
Dorgard provides ultimate stopping power against doors & door closers, capable of holding EN 7 doors up to 1600mm wide and 160kg in weight with fire ratings of 120 minutes.
The Dorgard has been designed for complete safety and will "fail safe" in the event of a fault or flat battery. The mechanism which holds the plunger down, to resist the closing force on a door, requires power to remain active. This means that the Dorgard simply will not work if there is no power or a fault in the mechanism, ensuring that the fire door will be closed by default in order to block the spread of fire.
All Dorgard Pro Systems include a FREE site survey and professional installation to ensure full site coverage & optimal performance. Dorgard Pro Transmitters & Repeaters have a signal range of 300m in open space, but every building is different and all construction materials limit the distance of wireless signals. Our engineers will assess the wireless range in your premises and make sure all units are properly installed.
Since the Dorgard is installed at floor level and operated by the user’s foot, a certain amount of knocks are expected. To ensure it can withstand this environment, the Dorgard is designed & built with highly durable components that have been thoroughly tested to ensure longevity. Dorgard is also certified to BS EN 1634 regarding fire resistance and smoke control tests for door assemblies and hardware.
The Dorgard Pro Transmitter can be directly wired into your fire alarm panel via an available fire relay to provide the earliest activation possible. The Transmitter will send a wireless signal to all repeaters and retainers in the event of a fire, ensuring all fire doors close even if there is no nearby sounder – ideal for care facilities with silent evacuation policies to avoid causing panic.

These rubber feet for Dorgard units are designed as replacements for existing feet, which the manufacturer recommends every 12 months. As the Dorgard units are used under normal conditions the rubber feet begin to lose their original texture which provides the grip to keep doors open when in operation. Forcefully pulling a retained door to close it, instead of disengaging the Dorgard, will wear down the feet more quickly than under normal conditions, and different flooring materials will affect the feet at different rates.

The Dorgard is an essential fire safety device which allows you to keep fire doors open legally throughout your premises. The Dorgard has previously been restricted for use on wooden doors only; however, with the new Dorgard adapter plate, the audio activated fire door retainer can now be used on steel doors. The adapter plate is discretely fitted between the door and the retainer, making it virtually unnoticeable when the Dorgard has been installed. The plate has self adhesive backing which negates the need for fixing screws to attach it to the door.
