PA Fire Systems @ Hillcrest Children’s Services
Compliance for children’s homes with P.A. Fire Systems
The Government has stressed the importance of good ventilation as a way of reducing the spread of Covid-19. Not all schools have suitable air conditioning units in place and buying new ones can be very costly. Pete explained that “The school was having to wedge open internal fire doors in order to allow airflow throughout the school and reduce the risk of Covid-19.”
As door-wedging is non-compliant, Pete knew that he had to take action quickly and make sure that the school environment was safe. “I was aware of Fireco from previous projects. I needed a solution to prevent the wedging of fire doors that could be implemented quickly without the need for extensive wiring and at a reasonable cost. This system ticked all the boxes.”
Pete chose to install 30 Dorgard Pro units so that the doors could be held open safely, satisfied that Dorgard Pro would release the door to close when the fire alarm is activated. Their system also has the added benefit of InSite which allows you to monitor the status of your Pro devices in real-time, making the maintenance of the system easy.
“The school is now able to have all fire doors open or closed as desired, without compromising Health & Safety and Fire Regulations.”
Dorgard Pro is a fire door retainer which holds open fire doors legally, allowing them to automatically close when an alarm is activated.
Dorgard Pro is controlled by ProHub, which is directly connected to the fire alarm panel. As this requires professional installation, Dorgard Pro is exclusively available to professional installers. We’ll recommend an installer in your area.
