Protect Your Child’s Fingers
It doesn’t take much, as simple as a misplaced finger, or a momentary lapse in judgement. It can be caused by someone else’s careless mistake, or even one of our own. Door related injuries happen in a matter of seconds and safety is often neglected until an accident occurs. Stay safe with FingerguardUSA.
FingerguardUSA offers a wide variety of door safety guards for almost any application such as Daycare Centers, Hospitals, Restaurants, Schools, Churches and Homes.
How often do we think of a door as a danger to personal safety and a potential source of serious injury of how being unaware of this hazard could even be a threat to the very survival of a small business?
National Case Study
This is the first study to provide national estimates of pediatric door-related injuries in the United States. Data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System were analyzed for patients ages 17 years and younger who were treated in US emergency departments for a door-related injury from 1999 to 2008.
The largest cause of childhood finger amputations are door-related injuries
Of all Childhood amputations, the fingers are most at risk for surgical removal, according to study findings by researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, and published in the Journal of Trauma. For the study, U.S. researchers reviewed data showing all pediatric amputations involving kids age 17 and younger in 2003.
Superior Quality & Large Color Selection
The range of finger guards that we supply takes into account considerations beyond basic door safety, such as exact color matching to decor, door construction materials, door hinge type and suitability for automated doors. Some models in the finger guard range also take account of draught proofing and fire protection requirements. There is even an infection control version to help prevent the spread of MRSA, Salmonella and other bacterial infections.
We have budget priced products for doors considered to be low risk and/or with low traffic and top of the range products for heavily trafficked and/or ‘prestigious’ areas of a building, such as automated front doors.
