Made from heavy duty mesh or foldable plastic, mesh safety roller gates and retractable safety gates are good for wide openings and can be installed either in doorframes or for staircases.
Retractable safety gates or mesh safety roller gates are ideal for home or areas with restricted space by automatically and quality retracting back into their roll. When not in use, they can be retracted back into their case saving on space with a similar mechanism to roller blinds
Retractable baby gates are perfect for areas in the home which have a high amount of traffic. If you child is not going to need the safety gate, simply retract it to create an open doorway, easy for adults and older children to pass through.
Retractable safety gates come with several benefits. One of which is the ability to operate it with one hand, leaving you with one arm free to carry your child or anything else you might need. Another benefit, due to its retractable nature is that if you need to pass through, unlike other stair gates that need to be opened fully, or climbed over, the retractable safety gate can be partially opened, then closed again straight away.
Retractable gates are screw fit safety gates which means they have to be screwed into a wall in order to be effective. If you live in a rented property, always check with your landlord before drilling into walls. Pressure fit stair gates are available if you are not able to install a screw fitted stair gate.
Where to fit a retractable stair gate
Retractable stair gates are the space efficient room divide or ‘invisible’ stair gate option, providing the ideal solution for smaller or larger than average door openings. As retractable baby gates can be fully tucked away when not in use they take up very little space and provide a simple, safe solution to dividing areas inside the home.
Retractable stair gates can be fitted in any doorway, hallway or across the top and bottom of the stairs inside and outside of the home. Made of a strong mesh and plastic, and able to restrain up to 100 kilos in weight, retractable safety gates are safe to use in any doorway. The mesh door is almost invisible once retracted, making it the fuss-free, minimal solution to keeping children safe in the home.
A retractable baby gate benefits from having no trip bar making it a suitable safety gate for areas of the home where tripping over a bar (i.e the top of the stairs) could potentially be hazardous. Retractable stair gates are safe and ideal for the top of the stairs. Retractable baby gates are versatile, they can be installed at vertical, or diagonal angles enabling you to create a unique divide in the exact space required.
All retractable stair gates are quick and simple to install and come complete with wall mounting brackets and fittings enabling you to install your gate on stairwells, banisters or walls safely and securely. Retractable stair gates are also a popular option for the outdoors, often fitted as a divide on patios, across external doorways, or to divide outdoor play-zones.
What age are retractable baby gates for?
All baby gates
are recommended up to the age of 24 months, this includes pressure fitted gates
, screw fitted gates, and retractable stair gates. From 24 months upwards your child may have learned how to open and close a retractable safety gate or how to climb over it. However, all children develop at different times and stages and what may be a suitable age to take down the retractable stair gate for one family may be different to another. Retractable stair gates can stay installed for as long as deemed necessary by each individual family. There is no rule as to the duration a retractable stair gate should and shouldn’t be in place, it’s simply up to an individual’s discretion.
