Fireco Ltd are Dorgard’s manufacturer and distributor in the UK and across the world. The product came to life when Neil Purssey, the company’s Managing Director, wanted to create a door wedge that can respond to a fire alarm. The company currently owns two Services divisions and an Architectural Ironmongery division, which specialises in door fittings and controls. Dorgard is the manufacturer of the fire door retainer, which is a wireless unit that can be screwed onto a door. The device will hold the door ajar unless a fire alarm is sounded. This clever item is manufactured in the UK and it conforms to the Equality Act of 2010. It also complies with BS EN 1155 and BS 7273-4 category B. Freedor is a similar automatic door closing mechanism which is triggered through exposure to the sound of fire alarms at an intensity of 65dBA or more for at least 14 seconds. This also complies with UK standards, and it has won the Fire Excellence Awards and the BEEA Award in 2011. Another innovative mechanism is the Deafguard fire warning device for deaf and hard of hearing people. The Deaf Message Service is also a life-saving piece of technology, and it helps public institutions and commercial buildings comply with Equality Act 2010. Dorgard products are available now for purchase online via the easylocks website.
