Stylish custom baby safety gates

Stylish custom baby safety gates Baby safety gates are fundamental tools in baby proofing a home, but this does not mean they should also be eyesores. An example of this are the two installation pictured: Above, a high quality customized safety gate with an auto lock door placed at the bottom of a staircase, below, another custom sectional baby gate, this time installed to keep children out of the kitchen.   Both these installations were carried out by our team in a minimum amount of time, without causing damage to walls or furniture, and using only JPMA approved baby gates that are not always found in regular stores. Placing a child safety gate for a non professional is not only time consuming but also complicated, and not always do parents get this installation right on their own. By contacting the Baby Safe Homes safety expert closest to you, not only will your child be protected by the best quality gate available, but by one which was also placed correctly and nicely blends into the surroundings of your home.

Custom extra wide baby gate for playroom

Custom extra wide baby gate for playroom Playrooms are the rooms in which children spent the most time alone, which is why parents must be extra careful in making sure this space is as childproofed as possible. Start by securing all dressers and shelves to the wall in order to prevent them from tipping over on children climbing on them. Avoid filling the room with toys that come with strings and cords (if this can’t be avoided make sure their lengths don’t exceed 6 inches), only buy age appropriate toys and periodically check consumer safety websites to ensure that products your child is using have not been recalled. If the room has windows make sure high quality window guards or window locks are in place, and install a suitable baby gate to keep your child confined to the secure area you’ve created.   The custom extra wide baby gate pictured above for example was placed strategically to keep little ones inside the playroom area and away from the desk and the staircase. Please remember to keep the area next to the gate clear of toys or furniture that could be used as a makeshift ladder or as a tool to gain height and climb over the protection.

Large sectional baby safety gate

Large sectional baby safety gate The large sectional baby safety gate pictured below not only keeps the baby of the house from accessing the bottom of the stairs, climbing up them, and then potentially falling back down, but it also prevents him from reaching the front portion of the home. This solution is not only extremely convenient, being that the parents have addressed two potential hazards with a single installation, but it is also extremely elegant and in keeping with the overall style and décor of the home. Furthermore the baby safety gate pictured is equipped with an auto lock door system that will enable the user to hold the gate in an open position when the baby is either sleeping or out of the house, in order to facilitate entry and exit of the outlined area. Please keep in mind that children are constantly evolving and that child safety gates are intended only for children between 6 months and 2 years of age. Once a child has learned how to open the gate or climb over it, it should no longer be relied upon as a safety device.

Baby proofing a Play Room

Baby proofing a Play Room The play room is probably the area of the house in which your child will spend most of his awake time, so it’s important that it be baby proofed well enough to allow your baby the freedom to explore the world without the fear of him coming across something that may harm him. First of all start by installing blind cleats to keep cords away from reach as children could easily get them wrapped around their necks, or chew on them. Same thing applies to cords from phones, or other small appliances with plastic wire ties. Babies are smarter than one may think, and they quickly figure things out, so place a secondary protection on windows, such as locks or guards, and install self-closing outlets on frequently used outlets and all outlets with something plugged into it. Install a Carbon Monoxide Sensor and make sure that once your baby is placed in his play room, there is no way for him to get out of that space without your knowledge. The child safety gate pictured above was installed in a play room opening to do just that, to prevent the child from wandering off without your consent.

Customized sectional baby gate

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.

Best gate for top of stairs

Best gate for top of stairs Child safety gates are not all the same. Some gates are suitable for the top of the stairs, some for the bottom, some are suitable to limit a child’s access to a certain room, or to keep him away from a dangerous hazard as could be a fireplace. Pressure and tension mounted gates for example should never be used at the top of stairs regardless of what the manufacturer claims. They offer a false sense of security and can cause injury to you or your child as they could be easily dislodged or become a tripping hazard. It is also best not to use this type of gate in high traffic locations as they are often knocked out of alignment and consequently cease to lock properly. When baby proofing the top of the stairs hardware mounted gates, such as the one pictured below, are the perfect solution. Contrary to what most people may think, if installed properly, this child safety gate, will not only be easier to use, but will also cause less damage to your walls than pressure mounted gates would. This safety gate was installed by a Baby Safe Homes safety professional in replacement of the tension gate previously installed (which can be seen in the background) and which had become a hazard to this family. Baby Safe Homes will help you choose the right gate the first time around by using only high quality gates that are stable, easy to use, and have a sturdy mechanism.
