Following a £34million re-development, Doncaster Racecourse, Exhibition and Conference Centre has installed Dorgard wireless fire door retainers to legally and safely hold open fire doors.
Doncaster Racecourse said: "The Dorgards allow us to keep our fire doors open safely and legally, enhancing access and letting customers and staff move about easily without compromising fire safety. Installation also proved to be very easy with no disruption - a perfect solution."
According to the company, Dorgard enables fire doors to be legally and safely kept open as it allows the door to close when the fire alarm sounds, preventing the spread of fire and smoke. Installed onto the bottom of the fire door in under five minutes, Dorgard listens for a continuous fire alarm of 65dBA or higher.
