Hoyles provide the Exitguard range - which is a trademark of the company. In the early 1980s, Hoyles identified the need for an alarm device to protect fire exit doors.

The first fire exit door alarm system was soon developed - Exitguard. Due to a strong background in developing products for the fire and security industries, even the first versions produced featured industry standard functions - such as tamper alarms and low battery warnings.

As Exitguard manufacturers, our Exitguard range was quickly identified by both local and national fire and security installers as the default solution to protect emergency exit doors. Success as an Exitguard supplier in the UK soon led to demand from customers in Europe, the Middle East and wider. 

Since the original product was conceived, the Exitguard fire exit door alarm system has been continually developed. There are now numerous new features incorporated and several different variants available.

Different models now exist offering control by either a key-switch or a keypad as well as the ability to be powered by batteries, 12vdc or mains. Inputs and outputs allow for seamless integration of the Exitguard range with virtually any other security or fire system including Multiguard indicator panels and intruder alarm panels.

Typical applications include:

  • Fire exit door alarm - the alarm activates as soon as a door is opened with manual or auto reset
  • Door held open alarm - the alarm activates if the door is open for more than a preset time
  • Door chime - the alarm simply chimes when the door is opened

Thanks to the numerous functions of the Exitguard collection it can be combined to form a comprehensive door alarm solution. Various models are used in many applications across diverse industries.

Exitguard products have been supplied to supermarkets and other retail outlets, hotels, sports centres, hospitals and other medical facilities, offices and industrial premises. As well as this, government, military, financial services and many other sectors have benefited from the range.
