This young client had some learning difficulties but was very inquisitive and adept at some tasks, including opening his safety gate. To ensure he is safe in his room at night a standard type of safety gate has been used. However he had learned how to undo the latching system and a more secure arrangement was required. It was not desirable to use a lock, and some sort of latch was needed.
A gate was preferred so that he could see out and he could be seen easily. Remap were asked to help. The solution proposed was a solid gate that could have a securing bolt at low level on the adult side. A similar arrangement was also requested to secure the landing adjacent to the stairs.
