Rixson Electromagnetic Door Releases
989 Electromagnetic Door Releases Door Control for Fire and Smoke Barrier Doors and Other Remote Door Release Applications

Installation Instruction
Product Brochure


Rixson® electromagnets are designed for virtually any remote door release application. They are primarily used to hold fire and smoke barrier doors open until released by a remote smoke detector or other switching device. Them complete assembly consists of an armature contact plate with adjustable pivot mounting for installation on the door, and a heavy-duty electromagnet mounted on the wall or floor behind the door. A separate closing device is required.


• 25 to 40 pounds holding power
• Fail-safe operation; power failure releases door to close
• Positive Release Button initiates closing motion
• Two-year warranty
• Multi-voltage on specific coil models
• Magnet protected against transients and surges up to 600 volts (AC models)


Install where required by code, where doors may be used to confine smoke or fire, or wherever remote control or automatic closing doors are required.
• Be sure door hardware and trim projections are compatible with total projection of door release.
• Anchor the electromagnet firmly since the wall portion will function as a door stop.
• Locate magnet approximately 6 inches in from lock edge of door. Wall magnets should be mounted approximately 2 to 4 feet above the floor for optimum performance.
• Door-mounted contact plate includes hardware for through-bolting or concealed mounting.

thank you.

Q: One more questions… What length stand offs do you have to connect the door armature to the electromagnetic assembly?
