The new Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary opened in late 2017 and is one of the most advanced hospitals in the country, with 344 single-bed rooms. Our clever finger-ejecting guards were used on automatic doors throughout to comply with BS7036 and on all hinged doors in the paediatric ward to keep little fingers safe.
With children constantly in the unit – either for treatment or visiting siblings – finger safety was a priority for the designers. They used our surface-mounted finger-ejecting guard because it’s the only safe and durable option for hinged doors in a busy hospital.
Automatic doors with a powered opening device must meet a variety of standards, including EN16005 and BS7036 (Part 4), and finger guards should be fitted. Our Alumini finger guard was chosen because it’s ideal for automatic doors.
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!
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).
Crosslet House Care Home is a fit-for-purpose facility designed to create a less clinical living environment for residents with dementia. In a project where 'in-depth consideration was been applied to every area of design' our Alumax integral finger guards were a perfect fit.
