Hold-open systems & accessories for fire doors

Hold-open systems and accessories for fire doors

Dictator have been a reliable source of preventative fire door solution systems for many years.

Our extensive product range includes a selection of individual components for stand alone as well as complete hold-open systems for complex fire protection installations. We also have a range of Ex-rated equipment for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Smoke & heat detectors

Dictator smoke and heat detectors have been tested in accordance with European Standard EN 54. The detectors are approved for use as interruption devices in hold-open systems on fire closures. There is also an ex-proof version available.

Central units

All essential functions (power supply, control and evaluation of attached devices) are combined in one device, so that one only needs to connect the electromagnets and smoke detectors.

Ex-proof hold-open systems

For hazardous areas, Dictator furnishes a hold-open system especially designed for this purpose that meets the requirements of the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU.


Developed for use as hold open devices on fire protection doors and available in a variety of models and sizes to provide as many installation options as possible.

Counter plates

Available in various sizes and types to complement our electromagnets. The variations in design provide many options to help simplify installation with a corresponding electromagnet.

Door sequence selectors

To safeguard good fire protection, double leaf fire doors require a system to ensure that they close in the correct sequence. We offer various systems, which can also be retrofitted to existing fire doors

Door dampers for fire doors

Fire doors furnished with door closers often slam shut loudly. Dictator door dampers include models that are tested and approved for use in a wide range of fire doors to avoid this problem.

Accessories for fire doors

To make the work of installing hold-open systems as simple as possible, we supply a wide range of accessories such as hand release switches and mounting brackets for electromagnets.

HLS thermal bolt

Due to the high temperatures and differences in air pressure during a fire, large fire doors can sometimes distort, causing a break in the fire seal. The HLS thermal bolt prevents this by securely and automatically locking the door into the frame.
