safety strip
Explanation:
This seems like an obvious translation, but appears applicable here from a bit of Googling. Very hard to know exactly what is meant from the limited context.

Example: "A rubber EPDM safety strip which prevents fingers being jammed on the hinge side of a door and the jamb on the hinged side." http://www.fingerkeeper.co.uk/fingerkeeper.html
