ZEROplus Announce New Addition to Finger Protection Range

Leading door hardware supplier, ZEROplus has recently added a new finger protection product to their finger protection range. 

Along with the popular Finprotect Plus, which fits to the hinge side of doors, ZEROplus now supplies a patented anti-slam device that prevents fingers from being crushed on the closing side of a door.

The Salvadita anti-slam safety system stops a door from slamming shut when force is used. Ideal for use in nurseries, schools, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and any public building, it protects against potential painful crushing when hands and fingers are placed between the door and frame.

According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a staggering 30,000 people trap and seriously crush their fingers in doors every year. And many of these people, particularly children, will require surgery.

Mark Lockley, Managing Director of ZEROplus, explains:
‘Painful finger-trapping accidents are far more common than you might think, and serious finger-crushing accidents can happen to anyone. To eliminate potential risk, a finger protection guard should be fitted to the hanging side of a door, along with an anti-slam device to prevent the door from slamming shut. Particularly in public buildings such as residential homes, schools, nurseries, leisure centres and libraries, finger guards and anti-slam devices are essential to prevent painful finger injuries.’

The Salvadita anti-slam safety device is used on internal doors and is quick and easy to install, protecting hands and fingers year after year. The device fits to the top of the door frame and only activates when a door is closed with extreme force. The Salvadita safety system won’t engage on normal closing, allowing the door to close normally and without interruption. The durable anti-slam device is suitable for use on aluminium, metal, PVC and wooden door sets, preventing painful crushing accidents when hands or fingers are placed between the door and frame.

Mark continues:
‘The patented finger protection safety system has passed numerous durability and admissibility tests, and we’re proud to be the sole UK distributor of this excellent safety product. Of course, unsuitable for doors fitted with a door closer and fire or emergency exit doors, as the device could stop the door from closing, the Salvadita is an ideal safety device for internal doors in any public building, especially those that cater to vulnerable people, children or buildings that are particularly busy.’
