Childproofing

The good news is that you can reduce or prevent the risk of injury by encouraging families to use child safety seats or reinstalling them if they have been removed.

Most of these restraint devices are easily accessible and relatively inexpensive. They can be bought from hardware stores, baby shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, DIY stores, on the internet, and mail order catalogs. Containment devices must be strong enough to prevent intrusion, but at the same time easy to use.

To be effective, they must be correctly installed. Follow the installation instructions carefully. It is known that child restraints can be switched off or disabled when the child is not present.

Child restraint systems are available to reduce the risk of injury to young children. The red numbers correspond to the numbers in the illustration on the back of the text.

Locker locks

Just as you don’t want your child to open a door to a hazardous area, you don’t want them to open a bathroom or kitchen cabinet that may contain dangerous products.

Lockable doors

Stoves can be very dangerous for children as they can get burned by food cooked on the stove or badly burned if the stove is lit.

Safety markings for appliances

Appliances are also a safety hazard. As well as turning on the oven and getting burnt, they can turn on the dishwasher, take a knife and cut themselves, or take dangerous products out of the fridge.

Revolving staircase doors with extensions

Preventing children from falling down the stairs is also an important factor in child protection.

Adjustable doors

Doors not only prevent children from entering stairs, but also from entering rooms through wide doors.

With adjustable and removable mesh doors, you can more easily put up temporary barriers when visiting friends and family members who cannot provide adequate child protection.

Window openings and barriers

Window doors and barriers are important to prevent falls through windows. As well as being strong enough to prevent falls, they must also meet the latest standards so that they can be easily opened in the event of a fire.

Fireplace doors.

Many homes have fireplaces, and although it’s nice to sit by the fire on a cold evening, it’s important to keep children away from the fire. Fireplace doors are a good way to keep children at a safe distance from the fireplace while it is burning.
