General Information for Customers Purchasing Pet Gates | Dog Gates
Purchasing a Pet Gate or Dog Gate is as common as the need for a kennel crate for most pet owners. Keeping a pet confined to a certain area of the house or away from other areas is a common need. Pet gates for dogs and other pets allow customer to choose not only from a wide variety of pet gate types, but also types of installation. Pet Gate models vary according in styles. Often the width and height of the gate dictates where it can be used. Hall way gates tend to be narrower while entry way and room dividing gates or barrier pet gates are wider.
Pressure Mounted Gates
Pressure Mounted Pet Gates are designed to wedge with pressure between two surfaces. Most models are designed so that there are no residual marks or marring on walls etc. Pressure mounted Gates can be very sturdy and secure. The major factor for this comes into play based on what the gate itself is made of; plastic, wood or metal. Pressure mounted gates are very easy to install and easy to take down and place in alternative locations making them a favorite choice among pet owners.
Hardware Mounted Gates
Hardware Mounted Pet Gates are models that require the use of included hardware to mount or fix the gate to a way, post, or permanent surface. These gates are favored by customers who have a set location that a pet gate is required. As in Pressure mounted gates, Hardware Mounted gates vary in the strength and security based on whether they are made of plastic, wood or metal. In both scenarios; metal and wood gates offer more permanent or secure options.
Stairway Pet Gates
Stairway Gates are uniquely designed for staircases and stairways. These gate models are designed so that they open only in one-direction. This is important as you would not want a dog gate door to open OVER the stairs; which would create a safety hazard. A Stairway gate would only open away from the stairway or staircase. Often you will find that gates have included hardware that can be attached to the swing hinge to create the desired direction of opening the gate door.
