Product title
Safety gate for children
ELPRESSO WHITE
Product description
Pressure-mounted safety gate made of metal sith white coating, supplied in a cardboard box. The gate has a safety lock which can be operated one handed. The width of the barrier can be adjusted from 77,5 cm to 85 cm and the width of the door is 60 cm.
Risk
The gaps between the bars of the safety gate and between the safety gate and the door frame/wall are too large: A crawling child could try to pass his legs or torso between the bars, leaving the head blocked, which could lead to respiratory difficulties or strangulation. The fixing mechanism of the gate breaks easily: if a child falls or bounces against it, the gate may get loose and the child may fall down stairs. In addition, there are gaps and an opening between the door and the horizontal member below it where a child's finger could be pinched. The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 1930.
