This finger guard is suitable for many door fitting styles, including centre pivot doors or where up to 180 degree door operation is required.
A single guard is used for doors with a 90 degree opening angle: two guards are required for centre pivot applications (see illustrations).
The black (EPDM) guard is available in a longer version and a wider version. There are also brown and white (PVC) colour versions.
This heavy duty finger guard uses two anodised satin aluminium aluminium carriers, which screw to the door/frame, into which the black EPDM / PVC seal slots.
Two black cover strips are provided to conceal the fitting screws. Fixing holes are slotted to assist alignment and adjustment.
As the door is closed the safety strip prevents fingers being jammed by pushing them outwards and away from the covered hinge gap.
EPDM is a tough but flexible material and this durable finger guard is suitable for use in demanding industrial or commercial working environments – including outdoor applications.
Each finger guard comes with zinc plated, cross-recess-head S.T. fixing screws, two push-fit cover strips (black) and an installation sheet.
The guard can be cut to any required length using standard hand tools and units can be combined, by butt joining, to fit doorways taller than the 2100mm standard length supplied.
This guard is also available in brown or white versions using PVC instead of EPDM material for the hinge cover. Apart from the PVC material the key features, build quality and dimensions are the same as the standard EPDM version.
