Customized sectional baby gate
Lots of actions can be taken by parents and caregivers to remove dangerous objects from a child’s reach, but the most effective solution is always that of keeping a child from entering rooms that hold potential threats altogether.
Pictured below is a customized sectional baby gate installed to prevent a small child from accessing two potentially critical spaces: The staircase and the office landing area.
Although stairs, kitchens, bathrooms, decks and balconies are the most dangerous rooms in the home, other spaces can hold hazards to a small child. In this case there could be sharp edges on tables, or top-heavy furniture that a child can pull down on himself.
Although the baby gate is in place it’s always ideal to add multiple layers of protection so, for example, secure the furniture with quality straps, pad sharp corners, install blind cleats so cords are out of reach and remove or block off tall floor lamps that could be pulled over. Also be mindful of glass top coffee tables (either remove them altogether or replace the glass with Plexiglas) and be aware that some plants are not only poisonous, but that their leaves and dirt are choking hazards, so keep them out of reach also.
