Products supplied: Integral finger guards (Alumax)



Renowned for its scale and services, The Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London is one of the world's leading clinical children's hospitals founded in 1852.  GOSH aims to provide high levels of care to patients whilst creating a comfortable and child-friendly environment to help patients and carers.  We supplied finger guards for the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children, which opened in 2018.



Trusted methods for repeat results

Architects Stanton Williams specified our integral finger guards for the major unit refurbishment, providing high standards of safety, practicality and minimalist aesthetics. 

With 63 clinical specialties across GOSH, we've worked with our Ironmongery partners to supply finger guards in a number of other departments including: 

  • Children's Intensive Care Unit (2017) - Alumax 
  • Nursery (2018) - Our finger-ejecting guard (Alumini)
  • Italian Hospital (2020) - Alumax 


Using a rounded heel, our integral finger guard (Alumax) leaves only a constant hinge-reveal gap of 2mm - too small for fingers and so discreet it is almost unnoticeable.  Its robust design also ensures that it lasts the lifetime of the door.
