How To Choose A Security Barrier


When a baby begins to take an interest in his environment, he often wants to explore it in every corner, even the most dangerous. This is where the safety barrier comes in. It will prevent the baby from accessing the stairs or a room containing dangerous products. The safety barriers thus delimit the authorized and prohibited areas for babies. They are generally used as soon as the baby starts to move on all fours and up to his two years. Beyond this, the safety barrier can be risky because your child may want to climb it.

Before heading to a particular model, make sure that the size of the barrier adapts perfectly to your door frame. If the opening is very wide, some brands offer safety barrier accessories (extensions, Y-connectors, etc.).

You must also make sure that the security barrier you have chosen meets the Standard. This safety standard takes into account several evaluation criteria: the risk of pinching, the solidity of the materials, the spacing of the bars, the impossibility for the child to operate the handle, etc.

The Press-Fit

 This type of safety barrier presses against the walls or door frame. These barriers can, therefore, be easily moved and reinstalled in another location. And above all, a pressure barrier leaves no trace on the walls.

The Screw Fixing

 A safety barrier is fixed with screws that will be very strong and will not switch to withstand the weight of a child. However, once a child is older, when you remove the safety barrier, it will leave marks on the walls.
