Technical Information


Here at Safehinge, we take technical compliance very seriously.

As you'd expect from a company devoted to safety, we're not satisfied until all the i's are dotted and t's crossed.

That's why we complete rigorous test programmes for all our products to ensure they meet the highest standards for fire and smoke safety, as well as acoustic and mechanical performance.

These exhaustive checks are carried out by the UK's leading independent test authorities to ensure our customers can have the maximum confidence in our prodcuts.

And it's why our finger guards' durable aluminium construction comes with a Severe Duty mechanical rating, so you can be assured that they're robust and long-lasting.

Find out more about our range of products here, with a range of technical information including user manuals and installation advice to ensure that fitting is quick and easy. In addition, you will also find manufacturing guidelines for ALUmax.
