Fitting door finger guards is a simple and economical safety measure - particularly in situations where children or vulnerable adults could sustain a finger trapping injury. 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 are used to prevent finger trapping accidents in the gap between the hinged edge of a door and the door frame. We supply a range of finger guards, including three models with matching rear guards, to cover the rear hinge gap of the door for maximum protection.
Our range of guards takes account of finger protection needs and other important requirements, such as: Colour matching existing decor, door materials / hanging methods, automated door / gate operation, fire / smoke protection standards, interior or exterior use, ability to withstand rough treatment, draught-proofing capabilities, sound-proofing capabilities and infection control via encapsulated biocides.
