As part of a re-development programme, Sussex County Cricket Club has installed Dorgard wireless fire door retainers at its indoor cricket school.
The system enables fire doors to be held open safely, allowing staff and visitors to move around more easily. If a fire alarm sounds, Dorgard releases fire doors to allow them to close.
A spokesperson for the club said:
“Dorgard is the perfect solution as it allows us to leave fire doors open, helping injured patients attending our Radius physiotherapy clinic, and for those using the sports hall whilst carrying large amounts of kit to enter and leave easily, but of course allowing the doors to close automatically in the event of a fire emergency.”
The wireless unit is designed to fail-to-safe, complies with BS EN 1155 and BS 7273-4 category C, and has adjustable sensitivity.
The Wireless Access Control Market in 2014
The market for wireless access control remains embryonic – just 6% of businesses have a fully wireless system, according to this new IFSEC Global survey.
This low installed base obviously represents an opportunity for manufacturers, distributors and installers of wireless access control systems.
