Safe Childcare Environments

The dangers associated with finger entrapment affect not just young children in schools and day care centres but the elderly and disabled who are also particularly vulnerable. In fact, anyone is potentially a victim of a door related finger accident.

“How can these accidents be prevented?”

Fortunately, there is now an affordable solution that can remove the risk of this type of injury occurring. Door Finger Protector devices are simple yet robust and prevent fingers from entering the full length of the dangerous gap along the hinged side of a door.

“A gust of wind, a thoughtless moment, a playtime prank, whatever the cause, in Victoria alone statistics show on average there are more than 500 hospital admissions every year for serious hand and finger injuries caused by doors. Over half of those admitted are under the age of 9 with almost 50% suffering fractures or traumatic amputation.”

Door Finger Protector ™ – Protection against fingers entering the dangerous gap along the hinged side of doors.

Durable and effective, the unique design means it cannot be imploded so eliminates the risk of injury. The installation causes no damage to door or frame and no compromise of fire door integrity. However, if required (i.e. due to poor surface condition) additional screw fixings can and will be used.

Guarantee all-round door safety by installing the Door Finger Protector – Hinge Pin device. This door hinge guard covers the gap that is created on the hinge pin side of a door, when the door is in the open position.

Used in conjunction with Door Finger Protector ™ the risk of finger entrapment accidents on the hinged edge of doors is totally eliminated.

Sliding doors also present a danger of finger and hand injury. SlideSafe™ creates a safe gap between the door’s leading edge and the closing jam.

Installed at a height out of reach of small children, the device can be manually cancelled by a responsible adult at any time by engaging the red-capped hold-back pin. Disengaging the pin will reactivate the device.
