Anyone know of extra wide security gates- having a nightmare trying to find anything that will fit our patio doors which are 145cm wide. We have a babydan playpen but the seperate sections will still not work unless the whole thing protrudes massively into the room.
You can take off sections of the babydan playpen. We used it to separate our kitchen and sitting room (which had a double door width opening) and it was the perfect solution. There was a little bit overlapping the sides but it was placed flat across the opening.
How many sections do you have to use. I had a babydan configure gate which is the same idea but only 3 60cm sections and you could use them pretty much anyway as long as not in a complete straight line and I had it in a kind of zig zag.
You can use it in a straight line. I'm not explaining very well but you dismantle it so that you only have three sections and then you place it flat against your patio door opening so that it overlaps each side (you would have a problem if you had architrave around the opening which we didn't). Then you screw the wall fixings to the wall at the point at which the sections end and then you can place the three sections flat agianst the wall in a straight line and screw the fixings shut.
Does that make sense?
I should qualify this by saying that we did this two years ago. Maybe they've changed the design?
