Protecting Trapped Fingers with Safehinge

Posted by Stephen Waddicor on 31 January 2014

Bespoke Complete Services are currently in the process of carrying out an extensive project at Clarendon Primary School in Bolton. A range of doorsets are being installed, all of which include the innovative Safehinge system, protecting children from the ever-present danger of trapped fingers.

Bespoke are currently working on a project at Clarendon School which forms part of the Blackburn/Bolton BSF (Building Schools for the Future) scheme. Several other schools, including St. Bede’s, Darwen Vale and Our Lady & St. John’s, have also enjoyed extensive refurbishments including the installation of a complete range of bespoke doorsets from our superlative collection.

The areas within Clarendon School are, as with all educational establishments, subject to high frequency of use and must be of sufficient strength and quality in order to provide a long service life. Over 110 doorsets are being installed at the school in a varied range of applications including FD30 and NFR; acoustic doorsets of both 32db and 35db ratings are also being used to minimise noise, keeping ambient sound both in and out of classrooms. All of the doors feature our Severe Duty-rated core and have an HPL laminate finish. Softwood frames with threshold seals and acoustic perimeters surround these quality doors.

All of the doors being installed as part of the Clarendon School project feature the Safehinge system. Current statistics reveal that around 30,000 children trap their fingers in doors each year; many of these incidents occur at school. Utilising a specialist pivot set and curved aluminium profile, the Safehinge system removes this danger and offers continued protection to all users of the building.

We look forward to completing this project so please subscribe to our regular newsletter for updates. For more information from Bespoke Complete Services, please call 01254 777142 or e-mail
