Agrippa holders offer fire protection in care homes

  • 5 Jun 2015

Agrippa fire door holders use digital wire-free technology to uniquely ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a specific fire alarm, ensuring the holder’s releasing trigger reacts only to the precise sound of the fire alarm rather than extraneous loud noises, so false activations are virtually eliminated.

Agrippa holders uniquely ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a specific fire alarm.

A spokesperson for one UK care homes operator where 29 wire-free Agrippa fire door holders were installed commented: “They are wire-free so they were very easy to install with no disruption, and have proved to be perfectly reliable, with no false activations.

Their use means residents are free to move around our care homes without restriction, and we can be sure that in the event of a fire emergency they will be protected.”

The Agrippa holder is installed at the top of the fire door to avoid damage to flooring. Its unique learning function optimises settings to suit the installed position, and it can be programmed for timed daily releases.

The fire door holder requires two C cell batteries, 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.
