More About Magnetic Holders

The primary use of electromagnetic holders is to hold smoke barrier doors open in applications where they only serve to prevent the spread of smoke and flames in case of an emergency. The holder will keep the door open at all times, unless it is activated by the fire alarm system it is connected to and it will release the door to close.

Another, less popular use of electromagnetic holders is as a security measure. It can be placed on a the door to a private room, such as an office, to hold the door open unless it is activated remotely to close.
