Most people aren’t professional pianists, but no one likes finger injuries. If you’re like us, you would prefer to never hear the words “amputation,” “avulsion,” “crushing,” or “fracturing” associated with your family members’ fingers. And yet, the Product Safety Commission has found that nearly eight thousand finger injuries take place yearly in household settings.
The most common cause? Surprisingly, it’s not lawnmowers, snowblowers, or garbage disposals, but garage doors. What’s worse, 20% of those injuries happen to children. Most often, these injuries result from placing fingers in between panels while closing the door by hand.
Now, as your premier Utah Garage Door provider, we love our kids just as much as you love yours. That’s why we’ve decided to offer the new FingerShield protection system from Martin Garage Doors. The FingerShield system is the most comprehensive to date, and includes the following features:
- Protected Section Joints
- Track Mounts
- Hemmed Edges
- Curve Shields
- Safety Hinges
- Reduced Hole Sizes
You’re doing everything you can to make sure that your kids stay safe. That means that you can never be too careful around the garage door. But with the help of the FingerShield protection system, you can rest easy, knowing there are seven extra layers of protection between your kids and a vicious finger injury.
Your child may or may not be a world-famous concert pianist someday, but it doesn’t hurt to keep that option open. So give us a call to learn about getting FingerShield at your home. A+ Utah Garage Doors: protect those fingers!
