FINGERSAFE FINGER PINCH PROTECTOR GUARDS FOR DOOR HINGES

A unique, inconspicuous and easy to install finger pinch protector guard for door hinges designed to prevent fingers being trapped in opening and closing doors.

Introduction

With some 300,000 reported incidents of amputated, mutilated or damaged fingers in doors per year, Fingersafe is designed specifically to prevent fingers from being damaged in the hinged end of doors. Besides the cost in trauma, treatment and disability, the owner or manager of a facility could be held responsible and incur litigation for personal injury. Having identified the need in the market, Fingersafe was developed as the original finger pinch protector guard for door hinges. Since 1996, Fingersafe has closed the door on injuries in the US.

Fingersafe Finger Pinch Protector Guards for Door Hinges Applications

Fingersafe is compatible with all types of standard hinged doors including: fire doors, wood, metal, aluminum, YKK type openings and dutch doors. Resistant to UV light, Fingersafe is designed for interior or exterior use. Specific uses include schools and other educational facilities, childcare and healthcare centers, homes for the elderly and infirm as well as residential use. It is commercially specified for restaurants, fast food outlets, as well as government and military buildings.

Fingersafe Finger Pinch Protector Guards for Door Hinges Description

Fingersafe offers no resistance or restriction to the door operation and allows over 180 degrees of operation. It protects the full length of the door on each side of the hinged end of door. The MKlA is a flexible, accordion shaped fitting designed to actually eject fingers from being trapped or crushed in the “push” side of doors. When the door is closed the fitting is compressed, but when the door is opened the fitting extends and provides a protective covering over the hinged end space. The accordion piece lies flat against the frame when the door is closed for aesthetically pleasing design. MKlA units are installed via a fixing strip which allows easy access to the hinge
for maintenance.

Materials and Finishes

Made in the USA. PVC (UL V-0 rated) with TPE hinges designed for commercial use. Dimensions Stock lengths are 80 inches, 84 inches, 96 inches Appearance Available in White (default), Black, Brown, Grey and Almond at no extra cost

Performance

Unlike an inferior finger shield or wrap around device, Fingersafe allows even a fire door to open to 180 degrees and actually ejects the finger before an injury can occur.

exclusion and is a smoke inhibitor.

Testimonials

“We ordered the Fingersafe products after having a small child lose the tip of one of his fingers. We now have your products on every classroom door in our child care center. We love this product! The design is flawless and the safety this product provides is wonderful! The protectors were easy to install and match our doors beautifully. We had a quality committee encourage us to find a product such as this and are very pleased with our decision to go with Fingersafe USA. Thank you for creating and providing such a great product to keep our children’s fingers safe!”

Tiffany Hardy | Director, Child Care Services , Memorial Health System

“I toured a local school and saw the product in action and it really works. They said I was the first one to ever notice it! I think it’s a good marketing feature because it illustrates the dedication that a facility has to the safety of their children. I also toured several other facilities and no one had a finger injury protection product installed. What a shame! This product has to be made one of the state requirements for daycare facilities. That is a win-win scenario for everyone!”

Aki | New Jersey

“I lost part of my right index finger in a school bathroom door. I wish Fingersafe had been installed then.”

Lee Veteto | Safety Officer, U.S. Marine Corps
“We placed two of your hinge guards on two of our 325 foot passenger ferries about a year ago to see if they would hold up to the high traffic of our vessels. These doors open seven days a week, for 16 hours a day at a rate of 50 to 150 times an hour and take a beating. I see no stress or wear on the material of your Fingersafe hinge guards.”
Kenneth Nash | Cape May, New Jersey, Delaware River and Bay Authority

“It only takes one accident to get people in an uproar. It was so easy to solve the problem, we need to spread the word.”
