How the Shuttle Fire Door Retainer Works

The Shuttle acoustic fire door retainer is installed on the face side of the fire door. Once installed, simply select the "learn alarm feature" and set off your fire alarm for 30 seconds.

Shuttle will then learn your fire alarm and activate. Once the unit has been configured, press down the plunger at your chosen door angle. Unlike other door closers on the market, Shuttle only responds to the sound of the fire alarm and does not respond to vacuum cleaners or other ambient noise.
