Door HoldersElectromagnetic Door Holders

Arguably the single most important fire safety mechanism, electromagnetic door holders guard against the lethal spread of toxic smoke and fumes - by far the greatest cause of death in fires.

The Vimpex range of door holders offers the installer the broadest choice of mounting styles, holding power and installation accessories.

Mounted onto a fixed surface, these door holders ensure retention of the fire door by means of a smart metallic keeper plate. Interfaced with the fire alarm system, the door holders are de-energised as soon as the fire is detected thus releasing the door without the
potentially harmful delay suffered by other types of devices.
