Agrippa fire door holders have been successfully installed at Surrey’s leading specialist Science College to improve access for staff and students, reduce the effects of door wear and tear, whilst protecting occupants in a fire emergency.

Blenheim High School, at Epsom, Surrey, is a co-educational, publicly funded specialist science college. With in excess of 1,300 students the need to ensure smooth traffic flows whilst maintaining safety and security, and unrestricted access are a priority.

In high-use environments, such as at Blenheim High School, fire doors can suffer wear and tear from forceful opening and back-checking of the doors, and damage from kicks, bags and equipment such as wheel chairs.

The installation of twenty Agrippa wire-free fire door holders has provided Blenheim School with the perfect solution ’Like any busy institution, our fire doors are subject to high levels of use, which makes them prone to excessive wear and damage, either accidental or deliberate. The Agrippa holders retain the fire doors tightly against corridor walls, which maximizes the door opening and means they do not release even when students bang into them. The pre-set closing flexibility suits the school day as we can set the doors to automatically close after school hours’.

Geofire’s advanced digital technology enables the Agrippa door holders to uniquely ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a specific fire alarm. This ensures the holder’s releasing trigger reacts only to the precise sound of the fire alarm rather than extraneous loud noises, so false activations are virtually eliminated.
