Our finger guards are used by more than 70% of Local Education Authorities and numerous independent schools, as well as retail and leisure outlets, and hospitals across the UK – setting the industry standard for finger protection.
For over a decade, we've worked closely with the UK's Local Education Authorities. It’s why we understand that, while they may want to use finger guards of a Safehinge standard, they can’t specify any company or product by name, particularly on design and build contracts.
We’ve worked closely with a range of LEAs to help them make a small change to their Employer’s Requirements. So now they include ‘integral’ when asking for finger guards. This ensures they receive a safe and durable guard that’s fit for purpose within the constraints of the public sector tendering framework.
We work closely with architectural and specifcation teams to help them get the finger guards which work best for them. Our nationwide specification team in always on hand to provide assistance.
