Ensuring that fire doors are closed in the event of a fire
is of paramount importance, as fire doors act as part of the fire boundary by
retaining the fire to a specific section for a pre-determined time. Having fire
doors open, held back or free swinging is the most practical use during normal
routine days. Therefore automatic door closing devices connected to the fire
alarm system are used to close the doors in the event of a fire.
Electronic controlled doors via keypads should be fail-safe
automatically unlocking allowing persons to escape the building in case of a fire.
Therefore electronic controlled doors should be connected to the fire alarm
system to ensure that they open in the event of a fire.
