Adult stairgate

Project  / Project number: BK2013/19  /  Status:

The challenge

  Client is unsteady on his feet and  is concerned he could fall down the stairs at his home while moving along the landing during the night to visit the bathroom.  Because of the limited space, the gate had to be completely removed during the day.

A gate was made from a metal child’s stairgate, with the plastic hinges and catches replaced by metal ones and a wooden handrail added. Safety catches stop the gate from being removed unintentionally.
