Briton 1130B.TE

Product Description


An electromagnet in the slide track is designed to hold the door open during normal use and is connected to the building fire alarm system. On sounding the fire alarm, or in the event of power failure, the electromagnet is deactivated and releases the door closer mechanism to close the door in the normal controlled manner.

It is particularly suited for use in areas where a standard door closer could be inconvenient or would impede the flow of people in medium or high traffic applications such as a cinema foyer or hospital corridor.

The use of electro-magnetic hold-open door controls are recommended in applications which are designed to meet the levels of accessibility called for in Approved Document M Access to and use of buildings.
