Manchester City Council had previously tried a number of finger guard solutions without success. Robustness and product life was a problem for this high traffic environment as wheelchair damage was causing plastic finger guards to split or tear within weeks.
That's why they chose our extreme duty finger guard (Alufast) as the solid aluminum construction would keep fingers safe.
Deflecting the impact from passing traffic, this would also help to prolong the doors life, providing cost-savings over time.
As a simple and quick product to fit, Manchester City Council have now installled Alufast in some of their most challenging school environments.
Worcesters Primary School initially requested 20 integral finger guards as part of an extension. They were so happy with the quality and sleek aluminium finish that, the following year, they ordered 80 retrofit surface-mounted finger guards for the existing building.
To combat a tough combination of high user traffic and high moisture content, our integral finger guards were installed throughout this award-winning leisure centre. Their discrete nature also matched the Pod's exterior which was designed to blend in seamlessly with its natural surroundings.
At the heart of their refurbishment process, Sheffield Children’s Hospital wanted to seamlessly balance safety with homeliness, creating a non-institutional environment for children of all ages. Naturally, the Trust chose to install our integral finger guards (Alumax).
Keen to create a 'home away from home' environment, Ronald McDonald Charity required finger guards that were discreet and unobtrusive. That's why they chose our integral finger guards, blending seamlessly into the environment, whilst also increasing safety and durability.
