ABOUT STAIR GATES
Stair gates are temporary gates, which are fitted at the top and/or bottom of stairs for the safety of babies and toddlers who might otherwise injure themselves falling down stairs. The simplest form of stair gate is pressure fitted. It has a U-shaped steel structure, with screw-out fixings clamping to the wall and stair structure. Such stair gates lock at top and bottom; some have safety catches that can he operated with one hand. Other stair gates, typically made of wood, need to be screwed into the wall and into the structure of the stair. Portable stair gates are also available.
