Door finger guards for schools and kindergartens

“Door finger guards”, also known as “finger guards”, serve as shield protection to cover the opening on the hinge side of the door. By installing finger guards on doors, finger entrapment can be prevented. In schools and kindergartens, many kids still get their fingers pinched between the door and door frame. Children often grab and touch their surroundings, so when they are near a closing door, it can result in a very nasty injury.

Research shows that yearly, thousands of accidents occur where fingers are pinched in between doors. Door finger guards for schools and kindergartens are a simple solution to prevent kids from getting their fingers trapped.  Arte Viva offers 2 finger protectors against finger entrapment: the Finger Alert 110°and the Finger Alert 170-180° Professional.

Transparent finger guard 

In schools and kindergartens, there are many doors where children can get their fingers entrapped, such as the doors in the toilets. Usually, these internal doors do not open further than 110° and are no thicker than 5 cm/2 inches. The transparent Finger Alert 110° finger guard easily shields the openings of these doors and protects children from getting hurt. The door protection consists of two parts: a wide and a small profile for both sides of the door. The Finger Alert is simple to install and is available in transparency.

Professional door finger guard

Exterior doors, main doors, and other heavier doors in kindergartens, daycare centers, and schools need to be child safe as well.  The Finger Alert 170-180 Professional door finger guard is, as the name implies, a professional solution to protect children from slamming doors. The Finger Alert Professional has been tested for durability and strength and is the first and only door finger guard that meets the highest standards in the world. The finger protector is suitable for interior and exterior doors that open up to 180 degrees or have an opening degree of 22 cm from the door to the door frame.  For doors with a wider opening, we offer the Finger Alert Extreme.
