Door finger protectors for schools

by Safety Assured Find Best Door Safety Products

Door finger protectors (also known as door finger guards) serve as an added layer of protection that helps you cover the opening between the door and its frame. Schools and kindergartens can prevent any significant finger entrapment injury by installing a door finger guard on all high traffic doors.

There are many cases of children getting their hands and fingers trapped towards the hinge side of the door across several schools and kindergartens across the UK. Since children are curious by nature, they tend to touch and grab everything in their surroundings. This means that if they are near a closing door, it may result in a nasty injury.

Research suggests thousands of door entrapment incidents where children and adults get their fingers pinched in between the door and its frame every year. However, kindergartens and schools can prevent this by installing door hinge finger guards that prevent children and adults from getting their fingers in the hinge side of the door.

Hinge protectors

If you are an owner or a manager of a school or kindergarten, there will be several doors where children may get their fingers entrapped, such as the door to their classrooms or the toilets. Ideally, these internal doors don't open more than 110 degrees and are not very thick. You can find a wide variety of door hinge protectors online that can easily fit your existing doors without having to call for professional assistance. 

However, this does not mean that you have to leave your main doors or other heavy doors unprotected. There are specific door finger guards built for such heavy-duty doors and prevent them from slamming shut due to excessive force or wind. 

Suppose you are looking for a safe and affordable way to prevent any door entrapment injuries within your premises. In that case, installing a door finger guard is an ideal solution for you.
