Vimpex Ltd, Europe’s leading independent manufacturer of fire alarm ancillaries is pleased to announce the launch of the Fire Door Coordinator as an extension to the already established Wired and Wire-Free Door Holder product range.
The Fire Door Coordinator ensures that a pair of self-closing fire doors will always shut in the correct sequence regardless of which door is opened first. If the double doors do not shut in the correct sequence, they will not close in the middle and leave a gap for dangerous smoke and gases to pass through. This is particularly important for fire-rated doors and self-latching security doors as it maintains the doors deal thus eliminating the need for human intervention.
COVID-19 has presented many challenges for businesses, one of them being able to reduce the risk of infection in the workplace which sometimes leaves businesses no choice but to leave fire doors open, increasing the risk of self-closing double doors to fall out of sequence. On release of a fire door, having a safe and convenient solution to allow the doors to close in the correct sequence can effectively aid returning to work strategies.
Managing Director of Vimpex Ltd, James Jones commented on the extension to the Door Holder range “We’ve seen a significant upturn in demand for the fire door hardware. The introduction of Selectrite’s Fire Door Coordinator is the first of several new such products we shall be releasing in the coming weeks”.
The Fire Door Coordinator can be used on both fire regulated and non-fire regulated door sets and has a wide range of finishes. It is a smart and discrete product which is easy for the installer to fit and for the end-user to maintain.
The Fire Door Coordinator is available for immediate purchase from Vimpex. Visit www.vimpex.co.uk for further details and to download the product datasheet and brochure.
