Making hands safe.



For some time, the hinge edge of a door has been seen as a possible area of harm for children, with a potential for shearing and crushing of small, inquisitive fingers, as door closers fitted as part of the fire-safety requirements shut the door automatically.

According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), 30,000 children trap and seriously injure their fingers in doors every year and more than 1500 of these children will need surgery.

The cost of litigation for such incidents can also be substantial. Traditionally, these vulnerable areas have been protected by bulky and unsightly retro-fit products which are prone to damage and vandalism.

Sentinel:
Leaderflush Shapland has developed an innovative finger and hand protection system, Sentinel, which offers both a discreet and aesthetically pleasing solution. 

Sentinel uses a pivoted design with decorative timber elements as an integral part of the doorset and is ideal for educational environments, nurseries, health centres, hospitals and commercial applications.
Sentinel provides effective and unobtrusive finger protection whilst guaranteeing the highest levels of performance.

Seals and essential ironmongery are included, eliminating the risk of certification problems. This integral solution not only satisfies important performance requirements - compliant opening forces, fire resistance of up to 60 minutes and the acoustic requirements in schools of 30 RwdB but also adds an option for a unique, contemporary, modern design for timber doorsets. It also negates the need for on-site trades fitting retro-fit components.
