Hinge Guards & Internal Finger Guards

Hinge Guards could not be simpler, one 250mm wide strip of EPDM flexible rubber like material is clamped by two piecs of aluminium to the surface of the gate or piers. This shields the hinge and prevents people from getting hands or fingures trapped in this closing space. The great advantage is how simply and reliably it solves a problem that could only be remedied by the costly re-manufacture of the gate hinges.

Finger Guards follow the same principle but are intended for internal use. Statistics gathered in the Netherlands show that its not just small children that suffer crushing injuries in unprotected door hinges. A significant number of people are injured in this way well into their twenties.

At Gate Safety Systems we have always felt that a product that prevents accidents is preferable to one that reduces the damage. For this reason we very highly rate Hinge Guard and Finger Guard products. You can find all the information you need below for Hinge Guard and Finger Guard products.
