Now there is a way of for you to keep your fire door open to provide easy access and to have it close reducing the risk of a potential fire spreading, with the Union DoorSense Fire Door Retainer in black. Stopping a fire door from closing can void your insurance and potentially land you in court when you use a wedge, an extinguisher, or furniture to hold it open. With this fitted, it will automatically close whenever your fire alarm goes off, or at pre-set times for overnight. This fire door holder is ideal for schools, hospitals and care homes.

A standalone device, powered by two Alkaline C batteries (included), users must open a fire door and push the system’s foot plunger down into the floorplate to activate; the device will then hold the door open to enhance access throughout the building. Should a fire alarm sound at over 80dB and continuing longer than 15 seconds, DoorSense will identify it with acoustic technology and automatically release the foot plunger, allowing the fire door to close via a separate door closer. The sensitivity of the union is adjustable to suit the environment in which it’s installed.

Produced by Union, the world-renowned lock maker and sister company of Yale, the wireless fire door retainer is robust and practical, the curved design deflects impacts and keeps it looking smart. The fire retardant black casing is suitable for timber fire doors and provides fire resistance up to 120 hours, is CE Marked, tested and certified to BS EN 1155:1997, and comes with a two-year manufacturer’s guarantee.

Suitable for doors up to 160kg and 1600mm wide, it must be used in conjunction with a size 3 to 7 door closure. Quick and easy to install, it retrofits previously installed door release units requiring no electrical wiring. The holder fits with four screws to the door, with the floor plate needing another four. To operate, simply open the door to the floor plate and push the foot plunger down.

The Union Wireless Fire Door Holder is also available in Red.
