The Fingershield™ Push-side Wide-Model door finger guard prevents finger and hand injuries occurring at the hinge-side of the Push-side of a door that opens 180 degrees by covering the gap created between the door and the door-frame as the door is opened.
Doors that open 180 degrees are in most cases Emergency exit doors and have a panic-bar / push-bar installed.
To install the Fingershield™ Push-side Wide-Model door finger guard requires a gap of at least 2½ inches between the end of the panic-bar / push-bar and the door-frame when the door is shut.
Fingershield™ door finger guards: The Number One Door Safety Solution
Injuries caused by fingers and hands getting squashed in doors are all too common – however they are preventable. That’s why the Fingershield™ door finger guards were invented in 1999.
Since then more than a million door finger guards have been installed in over 8,000 Schools and Child Care Centers and numerous YMCAs, Military bases, Gymnasiums, Supermarkets, Fast Food Restaurants, Leisure Centers, and family oriented Clubs in the UK, Europe and the USA
They are easy to install, to remove and re-install for maintenance, and are a simple and practical solution to prevent accidents and comply with health and safety requirements.
