Wireless solution installed on fire doors at Mulberry Court
Care home operator, Barchester, has installed electrically-powered Freedor free-swing door closers from Fireco at its Mulberry Court care home in north Yorkshire.
Freedor is a wireless solution that allows users to hold open fire doors at any angle, automatically closing them when the fire alarm sounds to prevent the spread of fire and smoke around the building.
Installed at the top of the door, the product is neat, unobtrusive and easy to install in new buildings as well as retrofitting, with none of the expense and disruption to occupants or the building associated with the installation of hard-wired door closers.
Features include fail-to-safe technology with a minimum battery life of 12-18 months; and adjustable sensitivity; and the units comply with BS EN 1154, BS EN 1155, and BS 7273-4 category B regulations.
