As we are a registered approved Fireco installer, we can install and set up the Pro Range of products which include the ‘Dorguard’

This device attaches to the bottom of the door and is battery operated. It is set up so when the fire alarm sounds it will automatically remove the door stop and the fire door will close by the door closer.

All of the solutions are available for all types of commercial buildings including –

  • Hospitals
  • Offices
  • Leisure centres
  • Shops
  • Restaurants
  • Schools
  • Colleges
  • Universities
  • Care homes

We will arrange a survey to carry out an assessment as to which of the solutions are most appropriate on each door. This would then allow us to provide a quotation to supply and install them at the most convenient time.

Government Guidelines

It is important to frequently wash your hands and any surface that a person’s hand could touch.

There should be an increased cleaning regime within the building and anti-bacterial available where washing is not possible as an example at the entrance to the building.

From the government guidelines it states –

Social distancing at work

Objective:

To maintain 2m social distancing wherever possible, including while arriving at and departing from work, while in work and when travelling between sites.

You must maintain social distancing in the workplace wherever possible.

  • Where the social distancing guidelines cannot be followed in full in relation to a particular activity, businesses should consider whether that activity needs to continue for the business to operate, and, if so, take all the mitigating actions possible to reduce the risk of transmission between their staff. Mitigating actions include:
    • Further increasing the frequency of hand washing and surface cleaning.
    • • Frequent cleaning of objects and surfaces that are touched regularly, such as door handles and keyboards, and making sure there are adequate disposal arrangements.
