HOW TO SELECT FIREPLACE SAFETY PRODUCTS

There are choices to make here, too! Is your hearth flush with the floor or is it raised? Is it made of brick or stone? Can your baby crawl underneath your hearth and bump his head from below? Do you have a wood burning stove on your hearth?

To help protect your baby from bumps and bruises you might consider a hearth guard. It’s made of flame retardant foam padding and surrounds your hearth’s rough corners and edges. Most hearth guards attach to the surface with Velcro®. You can still use your fireplace without removing the hearth guard when your baby is safely tucked in his crib. A HearthGate™, however, will protect your baby from the entire hearth area. This unique gate system surrounds your entire hearth and provides the ultimate protection for your baby. It’s the only solution if you have a wood stove.
