Project Brief


Pinelog Architectural Technicians were tasked with designing an inviting yet safe entrance which could easily replace an existing but worn out access in a children’s play area. It was important that the products used were hard wearing, inviting and safe for little fingers.


The Solution


The hinges specified on these gates and across the play centre were Intastop’s Finger Safety Hinge. This hinge is tried and tested to prevent the trapping of fingers in doors and gates by eliminating the dangerous gap on the hinge side of the door. The Finger Safety Hinge is suitable play areas, nurseries, schools, nursing homes and healthcare establishments. It is suitable for new build and retrofit.


In addition, signs made for the entrance and exit gates were from our Digi-print protection sheet allowing the play centre’s logo to be incorporated into the design creating a bold and bright entrance and exit for customers. The sheet offers anti-bacterial properties which is especially important in situations where children are present but is also ideally suited to health care, education and leisure sectors.
