Aluminium finger protection roller blind system to prevent fingers being trapped between the edge of the door and the door frame on the push side of the door. The tensioned blind pulls out of the frame's fixed housing to span the gap as the door opens and automatically retracts as the door closes. The motion of the moving blind against fingers provides a warning for a hand to be moved away from a potential finger trapping incident. The design is preferred by automatic door manufactures. However, it is suitable for use on any single action hinged or pivoted door regardless of whether it is manually or power operated. It is recommended for use in commercial and public buildings, retail outlets, educational buildings, schools, nurseries and healthcare centres. It has been tested to over one million opening and closing cycles and is ideal for high traffic areas.

The standard colour for the fabric blind insert is black.

In 2015 this product was improved by extending the width of the pull-out blind to be 250mm as standard (from the original 150mm) as this allows for use on thicker doors, or doors on projecting hinges or pivots. The blind comprises a nylon weaved mesh sandwiched between two pieces of black PVC. It is stronger than plain PVC and less likely than cloth to attract dust and dirt. The blind is spring-loaded and retracts into the housing when the door closes.

The blind housing is manufactured from aluminium and the standard stock finishes are satin anodised aluminium and black anodised aluminium.

This is a product that should not be cut down on site. The standard housing length is 1950mm including the 5mm black plastic end caps at each end, but other shorter lengths are available to special order (no minimum size). For automatic doors it is important that the blind runs the full height of the door. It is not manufactured in sizes above 1950mm. Please note that the length of the foot which fits the frame is 10mm less than the housing i.e. 1940mm and the blind is 25mm less than the housing i.e. 1925mm. When fitting the housing to the door, a gap of at least 10mm is required top and bottom.

Please note that the frame stop must be at least 40mm wide in order to fit the roller blind. This product is supplied with double sided tape to aid installation and screw fixings for final fixing. Screw heads on the foot which fits to the door are concealed from sight by a slide-in-plastic cover strip. Installation is simple and full instructions are supplied. This product can be fixed to left or right hand doors and is suitable for internal or external use. It requires no maintenance other than a wipe down with a damp cloth for cleaning purposes.
