Smoke and Heat Detectors

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

Central units

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

Ex-Proof Hold-Open Systems

For hazardous areas, DICTATOR furnishes a hold-open system especially for hazardous areas that meets the requirements of the EX directive 2014/34/EU.


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

Counter Plates

DICTATOR counter plates are 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 ensure good fire protection, double leaf fire protection doors require a system to ensure that they close in the correct sequence. Dictator provide various systems for this purpose, which can also be retro-fitted to existing fire doors

Door Check for Fire Doors

Fire doors with spring closers often slam shut loudly. DICTATOR door checks prevent this by catching the door just before it closes and smoothly pulls it shut. The V1600F door check has been tested and approved for use on fire doors.

HLS Thermal Bolt

Due to the high temperatures and differences in air pressure that may originate from a fire, large fire doors can sometimes distort causing a break in fire seal integrity. The DICTATOR HLS thermal bolt prevents this by securely locking the door to the frame.


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