Agrippa fire door holders help care for elderly residents

Agrippa fire door holders are proving to be the perfect solution for a number of the UK’s leading care homes, to ease access for residents whilst protecting them in the event of a fire emergency.

Geofire’s Agrippa range, is the first of its kind on the market that uses digital wire-free technology to uniquely ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a specific fire alarm. This ensures 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.

 

As it’s installed at the top of the fire door, the Agrippa holder does not cause damage to flooring. Its unique learning function optimises settings to suit the installed position, and it can be programmed for timed daily releases. It requires only two C cell batteries (which last for 12 months), has battery life indication and low battery warning. It is approved to EN1155 and CE Marked.

The holder is part of the Agrippa acoustic products range that includes an acoustically triggered fire door closer. UK manufacturer Geofire specialises in the manufacture of a wide range of electromagnetic door holders and other activation devices used widely as part of fire, security or ventilation systems.
