Hotron Finger Protector Range
DID YOU KNOW?
"30,000 children trap and seriously injure their fingers in doors every year in the UK and 1,500 of these will require surgery".
These are quite startling figures issued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. It is no surprise that this area was addressed in the EN16005 standards as below:
"Danger points between the leaf and frame presenting a fingertrap hazard shall be avoided structurally or by an appropriate protective device or safeguards provided by means of protective measures"
At Hotron we offer two options for finger protection, our premium offering is the the FP200 & our value offering is the FP100 as described below.
- The FP200 provides effective protection against fingers accidentally being trapped on the hinge side of the door.
- It can be fitted to most single and double action doors including automatic doors.
- The strong fire retardant fabric material is kept under constant tension and is designed to cover the gap between the door and the frame automatically when the door is opened.
- FP200 features an easy clean alluminium housing and a flame retardant fabric and is available in three housing colour options as standard
Cycle tested to 500,000 operations
Maximum length:1925mm (standard size)
The FP100 is a cost effective method of protecting against the dangers of finger trapping whilst ensuring your installation remains EN16005 compliant.
It limits the ability of the door to cause injury if fingers are inadvertently placed in the area between the door and frame. As an added benefit, finger guards act as a seal, isolating the interior and exterior environments when the door is closed.

PROTECT YOUR BRAND, USE HOTRON SENSORS
Greetings from Hotron Sensors!
With the extremes of weather conditions currently being experienced around the globe, never has it been more important to install sensors with the highest quality of infrared technology. In most cases, inferior infrared technology and an inability to adapt to changing atmospheric conditions is the primary cause of malfunction for sensors which obviously leads to an increase in expensive return site visits. Trust Hotron, the pioneers of Infrared sensor technology with over 40 years experience to protect your brand and practically eliminate site revisits due to sensor malfunction.
See what some of our customers have had to say!!
"My company is based in southern Finland and we have customers in northern Finland, It is a very expensive exercise to send installers to northern Finland for call back problems hence we need to use the most reliable sensors on the market. I have been using Hotron sensors for 4 years in the harshest of environments without a single malfunction. I cannot risk to use any other brand" (Technical Director of large Automatic Door Company based in Finland)
"Having tried a number of sensor brands, the Hotron brand performed best in our particular conditions of high temperatures, humidity and intense bounce back glare. Our customer base here in the Middle East is geographically quite vast so we have practically eliminated return site visits due to sensor malfunctions to nil. I highly recommend the Hotron brand if you require reliability and customer service" (Director of Operations of Automatic Door Company based in the Middle East)
