Every year, according to RoSPA, over 30,000 children are injured in the UK as a result of trapping their fingers in doors.
The Finger Guard FRONT device prevents finger trapping accidents by totally covering the gap that is created on the hinge side of a door when it is in the open position. Once fitted it guarantees that fingers are safe from painful finger trapping injuries. For added safety the optional Finger Guard REAR can be fitted to the face side of the door.
Schools, Day Care Centres, Nurseries etc. - create the safest working environment and avoid potentially costly and disruptive injury claims. You may also benefit from reduced insurance premiums. Recent legislation BS7036 Part 4: item 7.1 recommends “the use of a finger saver that either fills the finger trap or minimises the gap so as not to create a finger trap.
Finger Guard can be fitted to most types of doors including wood, metal and UPVC. Extremely simple to install, has a long life expectancy and can be easily removed and refitted for door painting. For total protection from finger trapping accidents the rear hinge gap can also be protected with Finger Guard REAR. (see related products)
