Our Solution: Double wood hard gates at stairway landing for interlevel. Wooden pillars are used to create anchor points where the hard gates can be installed at the stairway landing. The same gate is installed for bottom of stairs at ground floor. Top of stairs at the 3rd level requires longer gate and installation is only possible at an angle due to window.

Retractable gates are also used for kitchen and dining room, so that no tripping hazard in introduced at these high traffic areas. Railing nets are use to cover the horizontal metal railings to reduce risk of a young child squeezing through or climb.
