Finger Guards prevent painful finger trapping accidents
Front Guards from £10.95 : Rear Guards from £4.99 ex VAT
Protect children, your customers and your reputation with anti-finger trapping finger guards.
Fitting door finger guards is a simple and economical safety measure - particularly in situations where children or the elderly could sustain finger trapping injuries.
British Standards BS7036 (Part 4:7.1) recommends “the use of a finger defender that either fills the finger trap or minimises the gap so as not to create a finger trap".
Door Finger guards prevent such finger trapping accidents in the gap between the hinged edge of a door and the door frame.
Safety strips that cover hinge gaps are referred to by various names including:
We supply a wide range of finger guards, including models with colour matched rear guards, to cover the rear hinge gap of the door for maximium protection.
We have budget priced products for doors considered to be low risk and top of the range products for heavily trafficked and/or 'prestigious' areas of a building - including automated door guards.
Finger guards product range
Our range of guards takes account of finger protection needs and other important requirements, such as:
Our range includes zero maintenance, heavy duty products tested to over 1 million open /close cycles.
For total protection we offer several 'rear guards' to cover the smaller hinge gap at the rear of the door.
We do not directly install finger guards but all the devices we supply can be fitted by someone with basic DIY or 'handyman' skills.
Benefits of improving door safety
Attention to door safety can prevent distress, or even disfigurement, from one of the more common door accidents, finger-trapping.
Protect children, your customers and yourself for a small outlay and fit a guard. Some finger guard models help reduce energy costs, improve fire protection and contribute to infection control.
Young children and the elderly tend to be most at risk of finger-trapping accidents and, if your premises fall within the scope of the HSW regulations and someone sustained an injury, you could be deemed negligent for not taking a reasonable safety precaution by fitting a finger guard.
Nurseries, schools, care homes, local authorities and similar public bodies create a safer environment, enhance their reputations and guard against potentially costly and disruptive injury claims by fitting finger guards.
To see product construction and actual colours ask for finger protection samples.
