What is Dorgard?

Dorgard is a wireless fire door retainer that holds open fire doors, allowing them to automatically close on the sound of the fire alarm.

Installed onto the bottom of the fire door in under five minutes, Dorgard is listening for a continuous fire alarm of 14 seconds or more.

How does Dorgard work?

Dorgard enables you to legally and safely keep fire doors open. When the fire alarm sounds, Dorgard releases, enabling the fire door to close, preventing the spread of fire and smoke.
