Salamander Radio Controlled Fire Door System

The Salamander radio controlled fire door system can be fitted by an approved installer to safely and legally hold open fire doors.

Our Salamander system is made up of any combination of fire door holders and hold-open door closers which connect wirelessly to the central controller, which is easily wired into an existing fire alarm system.

The Salamander fire door holder and closer are battery powered and wire-free, saving time, installation costs and disruption to the building.

The central controller can manage up to 99 door closers and/or door holders.

An annual service contract is available from our approved installers
