Agrippa now available at Screwfix

18 Oct 2016

The Agrippa fire door holder and closer are now available to buy online from Screwfix.

Launched just three years ago by innovators of fire technology, Geofire, the wire-free devices release the fire door automatically to protect the building and its inhabitants in the event of a fire.

Unlike similar hold open devices, the Agrippa products use patented ‘listen and learn’ technology to record the sound of the building’s fire alarm. This ensures the fire door will only close upon hearing the sound of the fire alarm, significantly reducing false activations from loud noises such as vacuum cleaners.

The Agrippa products can be bought directly online at www.screwfix.com and can be fitted by anyone who is competent in DIY, as no electrical knowledge is required. Their wire-free design also means there is no need to disrupt the building’s infrastructure during installation. Full installation guides and step-by-step videos are available online.

Screwfix offers a straightforward and transparently-priced retail experience that enables busy tradespeople to shop for 27,000 products over the phone, online, via their mobile or from their local store.

Andy Collinson, CEO of Geofire, said: “We are delighted to have our Agrippa products in the Screwfix directory. We initially designed the Agrippa range to overcome the issues associated with wire-free devices, such as damage to furnishings or continuous false activations.

“It is very important that people aren’t using a wooden wedge to hold open their fire doors, as the door will not do its job and prevent the spread or smoke and flames.

“We truly believe in our products and are continuously investing in improving the technology we use to make our devices the best they can be. I am very proud that we can say that we manufacture all of our products from our factory in County Durham.”

The Agrippa fire door holder is a safe and legal solution that can be installed behind the door to hold the door open. Competitively priced and easy to install, the Agrippa holder is particularly useful in busy corridors to create free movement around the building. A chain keeper or floor mounted bracket can also be bought from Screwfix for non-standard installations.

The Agrippa fire door closer is a swing-free device allowing the fire door to be held open in any position. Installed at the top of the door, the closer makes the fire door feel light and easy to move.

Both products are supplied with two C-cell batteries and come in a range of finishes suitable for all installations.
