Agrippa fire door holders have been installed throughout Citadines Prestige Trafalgar Square, a luxury serviced Apart’hotel located just a few steps away from Nelson’s Column in London’s Trafalgar Square. The holders will ease access throughout the building, while protecting guests and staff in case of a fire emergency.
This recently refurbished luxury development of 187 contemporary, air-conditioned apartments offers guests sophisticated, serviced luxury close to many of the capital’s major attractions including the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey. 55 wire-free Agrippa fire door holders have been installed throughout the building to allow fire doors to be held open for ease of access, releasing them in the event of a fire alarm sounding, to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.
Geofire’s advanced digital technology enables the Agrippa door holders to uniquely ‘listen and learn’ the sound of a specific fire alarm, which 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. Citadines Prestige Trafalgar Square comments that it is very happy with the Agrippa door holder, "It is simple, compact and easy to fit. It has been very effective in solving our problem of obstructive fire doors. In turn this has helped us achieve a more positive experience for our guests and better feedback. We are also very pleased with the service we have received."
As it’s installed at the top of the fire door, the Agrippa holder does not cause damage to flooring. Its unique learning function optimises settings to suit the installed position, and it can be programmed for timed daily releases. It requires only two C cell batteries (which last for 12 months), has battery life indication and low battery warning. It is approved to EN1155 and CE Marked.
The holder is part of the Agrippa Acoustic Products Range that includes an acoustically triggered fire door closer. UK manufacturer Geofire specialises in the manufacture of a wide range of electromagnetic door holders and other activation devices used widely as part of fire, security or ventilation systems.
