Types Of Safety Stair Gate
Pressure fit stair gates sit within a fixed “u” shaped frame which is held in place by pressure at four points. Extensions are available for wider doorways. Stair gates can be made of wood or metal. These safety gates are easy to install and don’t leave holes behind as there is no need to drill or screw them to the wall. Additional features such as alarms to signal that a gate hasn’t been shut can also be included.
Screw fit stair gates are fixed to the wall with metal screws. It is a good idea to measure the space where you want to install your gate carefully before buying as you may need extensions. One of the benefits of screw fit gates is that they are very strong and robust. There is no rail at the bottom and no trip hazard.
Retractable stair gates have a mesh barrier that retracts on itself keeping it compact when not in use. This not only means they can help save space but will also fit a wide range of openings both outdoors and indoors. The two sets of mounting brackets will allow you to place the retractable stair gate almost anywhere.
Stair Gate Extensions
Stair gate extensions are a perfect safety gate solution for wider stair openings or for unconventionally shaped spaces around the house. They can be used for both pressure fitted gates and screw fitted safety gates.
