Where can finger guards be fitted?

by Safety Assured Find Best Door Safety Products

Children below the age of five or construction workers are more likely to be at risk of trapping their fingers between doors and door frames. Finger guards have long been the most effective way to avoid these door-related finger injuries.

But where can they be fitted?

Though there aren’t any special laws which state that door finger guards must be fitted but because of the manner in which safety legislation is drafted, if it’s an accepted practice to fit them in certain settings, then not fitting them could result in prosecution.

Finger guards should always be fitted in nurseries, kindergartens, and indoor playgrounds intended for little kids. Anyway, most local authorities will firmly insist on installing it. Considering that they don’t cost much, it’s a small price to head off a hefty fine.

For other types of premises, managers will need to assess the likelihood of an injury. Finger trapping risks increase where the door is heavy. If you think there’s a serious risk of finger accident on your premises, you should strongly consider fixing finger guards. They can be easily fitted with only a few basic tools.

Door finger protectors cover the hinge area of the door. It’s ideal to install them on certain premises such as kindergartens and indoor playgrounds. For other places, consider whether the people who use the place often are vulnerable to any door related finger injury.
