Finger protection for nurseries and schools
Updated: Sep 28, 2019
It is all too common that a child pinches his or her finger between the door and door frame. This is a very painful experience that could easily have been avoided. A door finger guard completely shields the hinge side of the door and makes it impossible for fingers to get pinched. Door finger guards are mandatory in many schools and nurseries in the United Kingdom. This is not the case in the Netherlands, but fortunately we find finger protection used in schools and day-care centers throughout the country.
Which finger guard should I use?
Door finger guards are available in different types and sizes. This can make it difficult to make the right choice, “how do I make my door as safe as possible and prevent finger entrapment for children?” First of all, it is important to look at the type of door.
