Product Overview

Dorgard fire door holders keep fire doors safely and legally open using battery powered wireless technology. Installed at the bottom of your fire door, the red Dorgard door holder is suitable for installation in a variety of premises including offices, schools, churches, colleges, health practices etc. Enabling you to conform to the Equality Act 2010, the Dorgard door holder, also called fire door retainer, is designed to both improve access for users through fire doors and to provide a legal and safe solution to holding open fire doors.

The Dorgard has the CE mark, complies to EN 1155 and BS 7273-4 "Standard" category and is accepted by UK fire services. The Dorgard is manufactured in the UK to the highest standard allowing us to offer a 5 year warranty, available exclusively to Safelincs.

Using acoustic monitoring technology, Dorgards automatically release the rubber keep-foot upon recognising the sound of a fire alarm. This closes the fire door and maintains the fire integrity within your premises. With a simple 10 minute installation, the Dorgard fire door holder is a quick and reliable solution to retaining fire doors. Testing that the Dorgard is working effectively should be part of your premise's fire safety regime and can be conveniently carried out at the same time as testing your fire alarm system.

Q. Can schools and other public sector bodies set up an account?

Yes, all public sector bodies are welcome to set up an account with us. On receipt of an official purchase order a 30 day account will automatically be set up for you. Purchase orders can be sent via e-mail: Once the purchase order has been received the goods will be dispatched to you and an invoice sent payable within 30 days.

Q. How do you know that Dorgard has detected smoke or a fire?

The Dorgard does not detect smoke or the fire. It works by being able to react to the fire alarm that goes off on detection of a fire. The unit will lift the plunger on the sound of the alarm, a warning tone is emitted when the door is closing.

Q. What are the fail safe features of the Dorgard?

The Dorgard has several safety features built in. The unit will detect when the battery voltage is dropping. It will then emit a warning sound and release the plunger. The device will not allow the plunger to hold the door open until the batteries have been replaced. Dorgard will also not allow the plunger to be used should the batteries be removed from the unit.

Q. Can Dorgard be used on a double door application where the doors need to close in a sequence?

Dorgard can be used on double door applications. The Dorgard does not control the speed of the door closing, it is the door closer that does this. To ensure that the doors close in the correct sequence the speed of the door closer on each door would need adjusting. Ensure that the leaf that needs to close first is set to close at a faster speed than the other.

Q. The Dorgard is sold with a 5 year guarantee, but there is no reference to this in the literature with the product.

Safelincs is the only Dorgard retailer who offers a 5 year warranty on the Dorgard. This warranty is not described in the generic manual etc of the product, which refers only to the standard manufacturer warranty of two years. Safelincs covers the additional warranty of the Dorgard. Our statement on the website is proof of our warranty. You can print out our Dorgard pages if you want to have proof of the 5 year warranty in the future. However proof of purchase from us is enough.
