A tough Fingerguard type, should you need a finger guard for the automated entrance doors of your corporate headquarters or for a similar high-visibility and prestigious location this is one to consider. Or maybe you just want a very durable hinge guard. Fingerguard Premier works with most single or double-action doors for either automated or manual operation. It fits any door up to 180° opening and there are standard (260mm) and wide (320mm) opening versions. The guards use a retractable, fabric shield housed in a slim, stylish and robust anodized housing. The guard attaches to the door using (supplied) screws and, to maintain the clean lines, end caps are fitted. Retractable finger guards have certain advantages over the more common concertina style anti finger trapping guards.
