New colour range for Dorgard

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Dorgard now offers its electronic fire door stay in a range of 10 colours to match standard door hardware. The company describes its product, also called Dorgard, as a simple, inexpensive audio-electronic device used to hold fire doors open in any position so that, at the sound of a fire alarm, the integral microphone responds to the noise, retracting the rubber ferrule and allowing the door to close within 12 seconds. General manager Chris Badenhorst said Dorgard is quick and easy to install, with only two C-size batteries being required to operate it, and also complies with EC directives, and British and European standards. “We realised there was a need to introduce a broad range of colours,” Mr Badenhorst said. “Dorgard is exactly the same height as standard office door kickplates, so it can now be colour-matched to achieve continuity.” Dorgard lists its new colour range as yellow, red, burgundy, blue, green, mahogany, charcoal, black, white and ivory.
