CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To prevent a child with developmental delays from entering a kitchen without supervision. The child's home had an open-plan kitchen which required a means of keeping the child out when unsupervised. A fence was constructed of pine with vertical bars spaced according to safety specifications to prevent entrapment. A horizontal bar across the top finished the fence. The fence is equipped on one side with a gate with a magnetic latch. One gate post was mounted on the beam marking the edge of the original room and the other was attached to a steel plate and pin bolted to the studs under the floorboards. The gate opens in both directions and clicks shut automatically when closed. DIMENSIONS: The gate and fence are 850 millimeters (mm) high and span 2.8 meters. The vertical pine bars are 30 x 30 mm. The gate is 900 mm wide. TITLE: Bicycle and Beyond. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 26, Number 3, October 2006. PAGES: 8-10. Number of pages: 4 (including cover). 2006.
