Welcome to SafeDoors Australia
Our Mission Statement
Research conducted by Monash University over a two year period showed that may door jam finger accidents involve a second person, often another child. The research also concluded that the most sever finger/hand jam injuries involve the hinge side of the door.
A closing swing door can exert up to 40 tonnes per square inch of pressure on trapped hands and fingers, resulting in trauma, mutilation and in some extreme cases, amputation. This easily preventable accident could have a long term psychological damage to a child or an adult especially if an amputation took place.

Insurance companies, such as Guild Insurance, have stated that common cause of injury and subject of high percentage of childcare centre claims seen by the company are a result of child’s finger/s being caught in a closing swing door. In many cases the finger is severed or fractured and extensive treatment is required. They recommend installation of door finger guards on all swing doors.
Increasingly safety auditors are also strongly recommending installation of finger jam protectors on all high risk swing doors to eliminate the possible risk of finger/hand injuries.
I’m delighted to recommend Edmond and the Safe Doors Australia team. Knowing the awful risks of finger injuries, we had been looking for years for a suitable product – and had found that they either didn’t work, or came off, or popped out, or affected the usefulness of the door, or were just too expensive to be practical. Safe Doors Australia solved all of that for us.
The cost was cheaper than most on the market, and certainly since installation was included, a great deal. It’s all cut to order, and the colours were matched to our doors. The price was so reasonable; we had most of our doors done, rather than just the ‘high risk’ ones. Everything’s got a guarantee, which is very reassuring.
The ordering and installation process was quick and effective, and we were kept informed about what was going on. Edmond did a great job, was non-intrusive at our service, always friendly and pleasant and did a great clean up job. He even fixed a couple of hinges as he went!
The product itself is really subtle to look at, they just blend in with the doors, and now we know that the risk of having any little fingers crushed is gone.
I had my own finger crushed in a door when I was younger, and I can still remember the pain and trauma so many years later, and my finger has been permanently disfigured – I’d hate for that to happen to any of our children, and so I highly recommend that you let Safe Doors Australia give you a quote.
The door protectors that you installed on all of our doors reduce the risk of crush injuries almost entirely, and give us and the families who are staying at our House greater confidence that the children will be kept safe from harm.
It was great to see that the protectors install in a matter of minutes, and thanks to a range of colours, they blend in well with the door jamb.
Edmond at SafeDoors Australia was very professional and courteous. He provided our child care centre with 2 types of protection from slamming doors, the Door Jamb Protector and the Anti Slam Door stopper. This has given us peace of mind and assurance that those little fingers are safe from harm.
