Geofire’s Salamander range provides fire door access solution for hospitals
24 Aug 2017

Geofire has been awarded a ten year agreement to supply its Salamander range of fire door holders and closers into one of the largest hospital trusts in the UK.

The agreement will see the trusted system installed to legally hold open fire doors, closing the doors in the event of a fire to protect residents and staff.

Geofire was one of two companies to have its products put to the test by the trust’s Fire Safety Officer. After careful consideration, the radio controlled Salamander products were voted unanimously as the best/most appropriate by the trust’s panel.

Andy Collinson, CEO said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this agreement. This is a true reflection of how well the Salamander system works and can provide the perfect solution for hospitals and similar buildings. We look forward to working with the team on future properties.”

Each Salamander device connects wirelessly to a mains-powered controller, which is easily connected to the existing fire alarm system.

The system is suitable for a BS7273-4 critical actuation (category A) installation to ensure that fire doors will safely close in the event of a fault or fire. One controller unit can manage up to 99 closers or holders.

Geofire’s Salamander range of radio controlled fire door safety products are battery-powered and wire-free, saving time, installation costs and disruption to the building. Both the fire door holder and closer are hygienically fitted to the top of the door.
