Geofire launch new Agrippa fire door closer that learns the sound of your alarm

Posted on December 18, 2014

Fire technology specialist Geofire will launch its new Agrippa acoustic digital door closer at Firex on 17 June 2014.

The Agrippa learns the sound of your specific fire alarm, releasing the door in the event of a fire. This new innovation in the industry is also wire free, so it can easily be retrofitted to any door.

The closer is part of the Agrippa suite of products, which also includes an acoustically triggered fire door holder.  Designed and manufactured in-house, the team at Geofire has been working with potential customers, to ensure it offers a practical, easily installed solution that does not damage flooring.

Andy Collinson, general manager of Geofire, said: “The team at Geofire is very proud of this product; aside from its listening and learning skills, it is a product that is easy to install, only requires C cell batteries, can be programmed for daily release and has adjustable closing speeds.

“It is perfect for environments such as care homes, schools and hospitals where it is essential to have doors in an open position at certain times of the day to aid access, but equally as important to ensure the doors are closed in the event of a fire.”

Geofire is based in north east England, where it operates a state of the art manufacturing facility and design office.  It manufactures a wide range of electromagnetic activation devices, ranging from fire door holders and closers to smoke curtain releasers and shutter locks.

The Agrippa Door Closer will be demonstrated on Geofire’s stand (M130) at Firex, alongside the Agrippa Door Holder.
