Fire safety in Healthcare

Fire safety in the healthcare sector

Whether you work in a care home, hospital or other healthcare setting, Fireco can help you with your fire safety needs.

Dorgard SmartSound, Dorgard, Dorgard Pro and Freedor keep fire doors open legally and safely, allowing them to close on the sound of the alarm. The benefits are:

  • Easier access for stretchers, wheelchairs and other equipment
  • In emergency situations, the obstruction of a closed heavy door is removed
  • Closed fire doors keep fire and smoke contained, so there’s more time for safe evacuation
  • Patients that are bedbound do not feel isolated behind a closed door
  • Compliance with fire regulations

Freedor takes the weight out of heavy fire doors, making them effortless to open. The benefits are:

  • No more struggling with heavy doors so frailer and less mobile patients can move around more easily
  • Risk of injury from heavy doors closing too quickly is minimised
