ALUMAX – The Finger Safe Fire Door From Safehinge
The inspiration behind the ALUmax range of products from Safehinge was very simple. In the UK alone, some 30,000 children injure their fingers in doors every year. That adds up to a lot of trapped fingers.
The end result of this is not only a great deal of pain and distress, to children and parents alike, but also the estimated cost of £200 million to the NHS, which has to deal with such accidents. With a culture increasingly focused on litigation, then building owners and specifiers have a responsibility to ensure such accidents are reduced.
The Safehinge Doors Solution
The answer to this problem is ALUmax, from Safehinge which is an integral finger guard which is ideal for new builds. This clever design offers a stylish solution as it integrates perfectly with the door, whilst ensuring it is impossible for fingers to be caught. As an attractive addition to any door, it blends in seamlessly with any environment and is perfect for all sorts of surroundings.

Safehinge – What makes it Special?
Safehinge offers several unique benefits, which make it ideal for a school environment for children or for adults with special needs.
It is almost impossible for little fingers (and adults!) to be trapped because of its unique design and sturdy construction.
In comparison to plastic finger guards, ALUmax finger safe guards have a long lifespan which means considerable savings (up to £500) for each door, over its lifetime.
It has almost no impact on structural opening requirements and its aluminium profile ensures efficient manufacturing techniques can be used to maximise quality whilst minimising cost.
