In high-use environments such as at Blenheim High School, fire doors can depreciate over time from forceful opening and back-checking of the doors, and damage from kicks, bags and equipment such as wheel chairs.
Geofire’s Agrippa door holders have been developed to respond to the sound of specific fire alarms, ensuring the holder’s releasing trigger reacts only to the precise sound of the fire alarm rather than extraneous loud noises, significantly reducing the risk of false activations.
Installed at the top of the fire door, the Agrippa holder’s learning function optimises settings to suit the installed position, and it can be programmed for timed daily releases.
The door holder requires two C cell batteries (intended to last for 12 months), has battery life indication and low battery warning. It is approved to EN1155 and CE Marked.
The Agrippa Acoustic Products Range also includes an acoustically triggered ‘swing-free’ fire door closer.
