Vimpex introduces programmable wireless acoustic door holder

26 Nov 2013

Vimpex launches an innovative wireless magnetic door holder which is triggered acoustically when the fire alarm sounders are activated

Vimpex Limited, the specialist supplier of fire detection, alarm and evacuation solutions, has introduced an innovative wireless magnetic door holder to its range of products. The battery-powered unit is triggered acoustically when the fire alarm sounders are activated. No external wiring is required and a pair of standard 'C' cell batteries provides power for more than a year. Battery life indication and low battery warning allows batteries to be changed during normal maintenance.

Advanced, intelligent, digital technology learns the sound of the building’s fire alarm, meaning false activations are all but eliminated. Its attractive compact design suits any environment and it can be programmed for regular daily releases, e.g. to release at night and resume holding in the morning. This function is particularly useful in day-care centres, care homes and residential homes. With a 200N holding force even heavy fire doors can be easily held open. A manual release button is also included.

With the addition of this new model, the Vimpex range of EN 1155 approved electromagnetic door holders offer the installer the broadest choice of mounting styles, holding power and installation accessories. Mounted onto a fixed surface, Vimpex 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 any harmful delay.

In addition to door holders, Vimpex manufacture and supply a wide range of fire alarm and evacuation products which include: the market-leading Fire-Cryer® Plus voice sounder family; sounders and strobes; fire alarm bells; call points and specialist products such as the Hydrosense Water Leakage system.
