Fireplaces pose a real challenge for families with kids. A KidCo baby gate, called the KidCo HearthGate, steps up to the plate with an innovative design that can be installed in places that are hard to fit. This model, like many fireplace gates, can be angled or curved around the hearth in order to mount into the wall and provide ultimate protection against heat, flames and sharp corners. In addition, some fireplace baby safety gates can be made larger, or smaller, by adding or taking away panels to fit your specific dimensions. If your fireplace is set into a larger brick wall, you may need to seek professional help in installing your safety gate. When selecting any fireplace gate, make sure it is made of a non-toxic, heat-resistant finish. You can also use fireplace gates around wood stoves and grills.
