Innovation Keeps Hands Safe

Innovation Keeps Hands Safe

The hinge edge of a door can injure fingers as door-closers shut the door automatically. According to ROSPA, 30,000 children seriously injure their fingers in doors each year.

Until now this has been addressed by retro-fitting bulky and unsightly components which are expensive, prone to damage and vandalism and are often hard to clean or keep clean.

Leaderflush Shapland, the UK’s leading doorset manufacturer, has developed Sentinel, a complete, integrated solution which looks good, cannot be pulled off or removed and achieves performance characteristics for fire (up to FD60), sound reduction (30 RwdB) and opening forces of 30N. Sentinel is supplied as part of a complete doorset solution including all essential ironmongery, which ensures all the performance criteria are met. In addition the lacquered wood of the doorset contains Hygienilac, an anti-microbial coating that kills the bacteria such as C-Diff.

Sentinel is the most effective and unobtrusive finger protection solution for a wide range of environments, particularly where children may be present, including education, health, sports, leisure and public buildings.
