Geofire launches Agrippa digital fire door holder and closer at Intersec 2017
British innovators in fire technology, Geofire is using Intersec 2017 to showcase what it says is the ‘next generation in fire technology – the Agrippa acoustic, digital fire door holder and closer.
According to Geofire, the Agrippa products ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a building’s specific fire alarm, releasing the door in the event of a fire. This new innovation in the industry is also battery-powered and wire free, so it can easily be retrofitted to any door.
Designed and manufactured at its factory in the UK, the team at Geofire designed the products to ensure they offer a practical, easily installed solution that does not damage flooring or expensive fire doors.
Geofire CEO Andy Collinson 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.
“The Agrippa range is perfect for environments such as care homes, schools, hotels 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 to protect the building and its inhabitants.”
Geofire manufactures a wide range of electromagnetic fire door holders and closers ranging from hard-wired solutions for new builds, to wire-free devices that take just ten minutes to install, the company says.
