Review: Pet Safety Gates

A relative newcomer to the world of the Safety Gate is the Pet Gate. Not so long ago, it was not possible to buy a Pet Safety Gate, however at BabySecurity we took many calls asking if such a thing was available.

At the time the range was limited at best, we often suggested customers should purchase a Safety Gate from the limited Tall Safety Gates available.

The main feature of the Pet Gate that sets it apart from standard Baby Safety Gates, is additional height. Most Baby Stair Gates stand approximately 70-80cm tall. Pet Gates measure in at around the 100-110cm mark, offering almost 50% greater height than other Safety Gates. This additional height makes them a difficult obstacle for most household pets.

Many pet owners find themselves in a situation where, for one reason or another, they would like to restrict the movement of their pets through their home. For example they prefer to have their dog kept out of the kitchen whilst cooking, Pet Gates are ideal for this.

It would appear that the manufacturers of Stair Gates listened to the consuming public, and now there are now EIGHT pet safety gates available from BabySecurity; from reputable manufacturers like BabyDan and Bettacare. Made to the same high standards as Baby Safety Gates, Pet Gates are just as easy to install and use, and often come with additional features unique to Pet Gates.

Bettacare manufacture a Pressure Fit Dog Gate with an integrated lockable cat flap; this great addition makes it even easier to use in a home with more than one pet. It is worth noting that despite the Pet Gates effectiveness in restricting the movements of larger pets around the home, the more athletic cats may not have a problem with vaulting over them, even at their considerable height.

Emmay produce a range of Extra Tall, Extra Wide Safety Gates, that are available in both black or white; suitable for almost any home. With the use of extensions, Emmay Stair Gates can be even be extended up to 162cm; big enough for almost any application.

While Emmay provide a range of Pet Gates for larger widths of openings, BabyDan have realised that even people in smaller homes have pets that can be a little too adventurous for their liking, and have designed a Pet Safety Gate that is suitable for use in narrow openings, from 63cm and upwards. With an extremely easy to use design, the BabyDan Streamline Pet Gate is a subtle and unobtrusive design that will match the decor in any home. BabyDan Streamline also has bars that are designed to be a very narrow distance apart, making it harder for cats to be able to sneak between them. In one customer review, a lady mentioned that her cat had developed a habit of trying to jump in the moses basket with her 18-day-old baby, and the BabyDan Streamline had proved the perfect foil to the over adventurous feline; leaving it unable to enter the room where the baby was sleeping.

With the growing range of Pet Safety Gates available to purchase today from BabySecurity, there is one for every home, pet and budget!
