Vimpex Launch New Range Of Door Holder Magnets

Vimpex Launch New Range Of Door Holder Magnets

The new Vimpex range of door holders offers the installer the broadest choice of mounting styles, holding power and installation accessories. From simple 24V dc surface mounted units to powerful 1000N universal door magnets, Vimpex stock a comprehensive range of fire door holder magnets. Waterproof versions are available for use outdoors and in harsh environments.

Mounted onto the floor, wall or ceiling, these robust, fully-approved 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 the potentially harmful delay suffered by other types of devices.

Vimpex staff are trained to advise installers on all technical aspects of the company’s entire range of voice sounders, electronic sounders, bells, strobes and fire alarm ancillaries. Customers and non-customers alike can access extensive information about the door holders and the whole Vimpex range on the company’s newly updated website at

Maintaining your machinery

If your machinery isn’t maintained or checked, it may malfunction. If a malfunction occurs, the equipment may go awry, the equipment may overheat and subsequently cause a fire. Along with your machinery, your fire alarm systems and protection should regularly be maintained and checked, so as to ensure it will still adequately function in the case of a fire outbreak. So make sure your fire alarm system is regularly serviced and maintained!

Manufacturing Fire Safety Emergency Procedures

Fire drills where loud machinery and equipment are being operated, are often difficult to carry out. You will need the right alarm system that can be heard over these. However, drills must be carried at least once a year. All full time and temporary members of staff should be aware of the full evacuation process. If your staff are more experienced in fire procedures, the smoother the evacuation process! Additionally, staff need to understand how to use the fire protection equipment available. To get your staff confident with the use of the fire protection equipment, get them fire warden trained!
