Seamless Ahmarra Integral Finger Protection for Fire Doors

  • 3 Feb 2022

Ahmarra now offer AhmGuard – a seamless innovation in finger protection for fire doors. Discreet and ergonomic, its smooth curve and durable metal pivot system form an integral part of the timber doorset, rather than being an add-on feature.

Thousands of people trap their fingers in doors every year, causing serious injury. This is particularly true in environments where young children are present such as primary schools and nurseries, but also in hospitals, care homes and leisure centres.

The Department for Education’s Design Brief (November 2020) states that new doors in all areas used by young children should have integral finger guards. However, the majority of anti-finger trap solutions are retro-fit and are often unattractive and cumbersome



They work on the premise of covering the gap between the door and frame. AhmGuard’s engineered geometry ensures fingers won’t be crushed on either side of the door.

AhmGuard delivers fantastic whole life cost benefits through reducing installation time and avoiding the need to continually replace worn or broken retro-fit finger protection.

Tested to the BS 8613:2017 ‘Finger Protection Devices for Pedestrian Doors’, AhmGuard is fully compliant with building regulations. AhmGuard met the more onerous Class 2 of the standard, which assesses the device’s ability to prevent fingers entering the gap between the door and frame when force is used.
