The Care Quality Commission is now enforcing the need to comply with the recommendations of The Building Regulations Approved Document M, section 3.10. The document states that:
Fire doors, particularly in corridors, are to be held open with an electromagnetic device
Fire doors, particularly to individual rooms, are to be fitted with swing-free closers
The wire-free, acoustic Agrippa range, which was designed for ease of installation and quick fitting, comprises of a ‘swing-free’ acoustic door closer and holder. Both products were developed by Geofire’s team of fire safety product experts to address many of the historic problems associated with wire-free fire door holders and closers.
Both products in the Agrippa range, use unique advanced digital technology that uniquely ‘listens and learns’ the sound of a specific fire alarm. This ensures the device’s release action is triggered only in reaction to the precise, characteristic sound of the fire alarm rather than extraneous loud noises, so false activations are virtually eliminated.
The acoustic door closer and holder uniquely ‘listens and learns’ the sound of a building’s specific fire alarm, closing the door in the event of a fire evacuation. This ensures the trigger only reacts to the precise sound of the fire alarm rather than an extraneous loud noise, so false activations are virtually eliminated.
