Many schools have long, narrow corridors with numerous fire doors in place, all of which would normally be touched by pupils, staff and others moving around the school throughout the day. To reduce the risk of spreading infection without compromising fire safety, we recommend using a Door Guard as a simple and safe way to retain and release fire doors. These can be easily retro-fitted to existing doors and use a sensor to release the door as soon as a fire alarm is heard. This is a great solution for reducing the surfaces being touched, so reducing the risk of contamination and virus spreading.
