  1. Safetots Foldaway Safety Gate White 60cm - 125.5cm
    Unlike traditional child safety gates, the Safetots Foldaway safety gate consists of two interlocking panels which move and rotates on wheels. This unique feature enables the gate to be fit at a variety of angles and opened from either side. The simple open and glide mechanism makes this gate extremely easy and safe to use. The Safetots Foldaway Gate is a unique and versatile, space saving baby safety gate, designed to keep infants safe at home. This is a multi- fit safety gate, designed to fit openings between 60cm and 125.5cm if used inside walls. The gate also benefits from fittings which can be used on the outside of walls to fit openings of 60cm to 120cm. The Foldaway gate is perfect for wider spaces such as hallways and landings. At its smallest size the foldaway gate will be angled, at its largest the gate will be straight, the size of your space will determine the amount of angling required. The gate can be fit diagonally and at multi angles. This foldaway baby gate benefits from many exceptional features, most conventional safety gates lack. In addition to the smooth operation of the glide on wheels feature, the versatile design of this gate enables you to open and close the gate at both sides as well as fold the gate back flat against the wall on each side leaving a neat open space when the gate is not required to be in use. The Foldaway gate can be opened simultaneously on both sides to simply remove and store, ideal for Grandparents or child minders or any environment where a temporary gate solution is required. When installed the gate measures 94cm in height, ideal to deter even the most adventurous of children. Hinged at 4 points, the gate simply lifts into the wall mounted hinged points (to close) and a press and lift one handed operation enables the gate to be opened. The gate is designed to be installed easily, with the lower fittings conveniently positioned to be installed above any skirting boards. The ability to open the gate at either hinged end provides for easy access and flexibility. The space saving foldaway feature allows for this child safety gate to neatly fully fold open at either side as desired, with both panels neatly folded to create a clear and safe walkthrough.
