Safe and invisible baby proofing

When baby proofing a home, stairs are always at the top of the list of spaces that need to be secured. Small children can fall off them, get caught in between the banisters, or dangerously climb over them.

Although a parent’s prerogative is their child’s safety, we do understand the desire to keep your home looking a certain way. What we mean by this is that not all baby safety protections need to be obvious, or, in some cases, a complete eye soar. Believe it or not, it is in fact possible to have a virtually invisible, yet safe, alternative.

Pictured below is a decorative iron stair banister. As can be seen, the gaps in the design are more than 3 inches apart and therefore, for the safety of infants and toddlers living, or visiting the home, need to be covered.

A detail that may have escaped most of our readers is that those gaps… are already covered!

Plexiglass, the material used on this iron stair banister, is a safe and virtually invisible barrier that will protect your children from dangerous accidents, while at the same time, leaving your home’s aesthetics unaltered.
