Whitepaper: Effective Techniques for Robust OT Security

FIREX 2019

WATCH: The solution to wedged-open fire doors showcased by Fireco

Sam Iden, marketing manager at Fireco, demos a radio-activated door closing device in the video below.

Freedor Pro, which is now compliant with category A – high risk – fire doors, is a radio-activated door closer – so doors can be held open without flouting regulations and putting lives at risk.

Speaking at FIREX 2019, Iden also discusses the ongoing benefits beyond initial installation of working with Fireco. Pro Cloud, which helps installers identify maintenance requirements as soon as they arise, is a big part of this. Find out more about why fire and security installers are choosing Fireco.

Find out more about Dorgard Pro, a wireless fire door retainer that holds open fire doors, allowing them to automatically close on the sound of the fire alarm.

Nearly one million Fireco products are currently installed in residential and commercial buildings around the UK and beyond.
