Kidco Hearth Gate
The Kidco Hearth Gate is an excellent way to protect your youngsters from the heat and fire hazards that could occur from your barbecue, fireplace or wood burning stove. They can even prevent injury from hard or rough surfaces that are common with hearths.
This gate is an excellent solution for layouts that don’t have mounting points situated straight across. The basic sized Hearth Gate is designed to accomodate hearths that are up to 6 feet wide and 2 feet deep.
If you find that your hearth area is larger, you should purchase additional sections that are sold separately. It is designed with 5 interlocking sections that are adjustable in 10 degree increments. These sections can be set either in a straight line or angled to fit your needs.
The standard set is comprised of 5 pieces. It includes a walk through gate section that opens in both directions and is built with an adult release lever. The Kidco Hearth Gate measures 29 1/2 inches high and is made from strong, tubular steel.
It has a non-toxic, heat resistant finish that is easy to keep clean. I like the fact that it easily blends in well with my living room decor.
Setting it up is simple. First, you need to measure the space that you want to protect. Then, place objects at 24 inch intervals along the area where you want to situate the gate.
Finally, count the number of 24 inch segments you have to see how many sections you will need to properly protect the space. They are usually priced anywhere between $250 to $280, however, you can find them on sale for less than $200.
If you are ready to buy one or are just thinking about it, I suggest you visit several online shops to compare prices. This way, you are sure to get the very best deal possible for a Kidco Hearth Gate.
