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.
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:
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.
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).
Completed in Autumn 2019, Noah’s Ark is the first children's hospice building in North and Central London. Known locally as ‘The Ark’, it aims to provide support and a great quality of life to residents and their families. Our integral finger guards were selected to help create a safe, home-from-home environment.
Keen to create a 'home away from home' environment, Ronald McDonald Charity required finger guards that were discreet and unobtrusive. That's why they chose our integral finger guards, blending seamlessly into the environment, whilst also increasing safety and durability.
