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.
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 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 MKl-B is a flexible, curved fitting, positioned on the outward side of the door and fixed to the door frame and the outside edge of the door. When the door is closed the fitting forms a closed seal over the hinge. When the door is opened this fitting compresses and provides a stiff protective covering to the hinge and the space between door and frame.
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
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. Fingersafe is aesthetically pleasing: the MK1-B as a sight seal or privacy guard, as well as anti ligature device.
Fingersafe is compatible with all types of doors except double pivot.
Fingersafe is resistant to most household chemicals such as bleach, alcohol and other multi surface disinfectants and may be cleaned with any readily available cleaning products.
