Makes opening heavy fire doors effortless

What is Freedor SmartSound?

Freedor SmartSound is an overhead door closer which makes opening and closing a fire door effortless. A wireless device, it allows you to place your door open at a convenient angle and closes on the sound of the alarm.

As it is a free-swing closer, the door is easy to push open without the usual resistance presented by a door closer.

How does Freedor SmartSound work?

Freedor SmartSound is a unique wireless device installed at the top of a fire door that allows the door to swing freely and be left open at a convenient angle.

The SmartSound listening technology will identify the sound of the fire alarm and close the doors, preventing the spread of smoke and fire.

The free-swing mode removes all resistance from heavy fire doors making them easier to open.
