What is a fire door accessory?

From a door keeper chain to a floor mounted extension bracket, these are complimentary accessories that provide solutions to using our products in differing situations.

With over 40 years experience in designing fire products, we believe these accessories will help in most situations.  Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need a new solution.

Hardwired systems are actually wired into the building’s fire panel. In the event of a fire, the power supply is withdrawn and the magnet releases. Therefore, the door will also close in the event of power failure, meaning they are fail safe. Hardwired systems require an electrical engineer to install them. The Geofire hard wired systems are category A compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.

Radio systems connect wirelessly to a controller via radio signals. This controller is mains powered and easily wired into the existing fire panel and therefore does not alter the building infrastructure. In the event of a fire, the controller is triggered into alarm mode by the fire panel and signals the holders to release.  The Salamander radio systems are category A compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.

Acoustic systems are a cost effective plug and play type solution, which listens for the fire alarm. Geofire’s acoustic solution, the Agrippa range, is the first of its kind on the market; it listens and learns your specific fire alarm releasing the magnet when it hears a particular sound. This differs from others on the market, which release the magnet on hearing any loud noise. This significantly reduces false activations. The Agrippa range can be fitted by anyone; it involves fitting the unit and keeper plate to the wall behind the door and performing a learn procedure. The Agrippa acoustic systems are category C compliant, as defined by BS7273-4.
