Because Ronald McDonald House Charity were keen to create a 'home away from home' environment, any finger guards had to be discreet and unobtrusive.
That's why they choose our integral finger guards. Designing out the problem of trapped fingers, they offered superior safety, blending seamlessly into the environment and meeting the charity's requirements of offering a comforting, unobtrusive and safe environment.
They also satisfied the charities durability requirements, lasting the lifetime of the door and providing cost savings of up to £1,000.
This was particularly beneficial for the high traffic nature of the Ronald McDonald House Charity, with multiple bathroom and kitchen areas, where the finger guards were likely to get wet and otherwise deteriorate over time.
This was the start of a successful partnership that's taken us from Manchester in 2012 to our most recent Ronald McDonald House Charity project at Guy's & St.Thomas' in London.
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).
Kinellar Primary School is one of the latest schools to be completed in line with Aberdeenshire Council's 'nationally-recognised' primary school building brief. The brief uses a kit of parts as the basis of every new build school within the Council - and it includes our integral finger guards!
