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.

For total protection we offer a guard to cover the smaller hinge gap at the rear of the door. This is colour matched to the FingerKeeper front guard.

We do not install finger guards, only market them, but all the devices we supply can be fitted by someone with basic DIY or 'handyman' skills.

Attention to door safety can prevent distress, or even disfigurement, from one of the more common accidents.

Schools, Care Homes, Local Authorities and similar public bodies - create the safest working environment and guard against potentially costly and disruptive injury claims. Our range includes zero maintenance, heavy duty products tested to over 1 million cycles.

Parents, landlords, shop owners - we sell in low volume too.

Improving door safety

Over 30,000 children are injured in the UK as a result of trapping their fingers in doors - RoSPA. RoSPA recommends the provision of guards in indoor play areas as a sensible safety measure.

Care homes, NHS properties and similar premises also benefit from implementing door safety measures.

Independent surveys indicate that "The parts of the body injured in all accidents varied considerably but the fingers (13%) and arm (12%) were most often affected".

Young children and the elderly tend to be most at risk and if your premises fall within the scope of the HSW regulations then you could be deemed negligent if reasonable safety precautions, such as fitting afinger guard to a door, had not been taken and there was an accident.

Protect children, your customers and yourself for a small outlay and fit a guard. If you fit one of the premium products you can make energy savings or improve fire protection too.
