ALUMAX – The Finger Safe Fire Door From Safehinge

The Problem

The inspiration behind the ALUmax range of products from Safehinge was very simple. In the UK alone, some 30,000 children injure their fingers in doors every year. That adds up to a lot of trapped fingers.

The end result of this is not only a great deal of pain and distress, to children and parents alike, but also the estimated cost of £200 million to the NHS, which has to deal with such accidents. With a culture increasingly focused on litigation, then building owners and specifiers have a responsibility to ensure such accidents are reduced.

The Safehinge Doors Solution

The answer to this problem is ALUmax, from Safehinge which is an integral finger guard which is ideal for new builds. This clever design offers a stylish solution as it integrates perfectly with the door, whilst ensuring it is impossible for fingers to be caught. As an attractive addition to any door, it blends in seamlessly with any environment and is perfect for all sorts of surroundings. Avoid trapped hands or finger with our finger safe fire doors.

Safehinge in Schools

Safehinge – What makes it Special?

Safehinge offers several unique benefits, which make it ideal for a school environment for children or for adults with special needs.

Unrivalled Safety

It is almost impossible for little fingers (and adults!) to be trapped because of its unique design and sturdy construction.

Excellent Value

In comparison to plastic finger guards, ALUmax finger safe guards have a long lifespan which means considerable savings (up to £500) for each door, over its lifetime.

Efficient Design

It has almost no impact on structural opening requirements and its aluminium profile ensures efficient manufacturing techniques can be used to maximise quality whilst minimising cost.

    What Our Customers Say

    I’ve worked with Enfield Speciality Doors on a number of projects. The team is always really responsive when I call for advice at the specification stage. We have to think about so many things when we specify fire and acoustic doors, from drop seals to floor sealant and other safety measures. So, when you find a company that’s easy to get hold of, with samples and good technical support, it makes a huge difference. It makes it easy to go back to them next time. And it’s nice to work with nice people! Christine Skaar from KVIST Architect and Interior Design
    Enfield can deliver - the product is good, the quality reliable as well as the service. There will always be someone cheaper but that’s not always a good thing. With Enfield we could trust that the product would be delivered when we need it and that’s worth more to us. We’re really happy with how the project turned out, with relationships established and maintained’ Dan Murphy, Trabur Testimonial – Qube project

    We use Enfield Speciality Doors a lot – it’s the service. There is a lot of trust both ways. You guys will commit to a date and do your utmost to deliver. There are lots of things I like about Enfield. Other door manufacturers; I know them, but I don’t have that rapport. When you’re dealing with doors it’s very detailed.
