Very large fireguard needed

(9 Posts)

Hi - my dd is about to start crawling (earlier than I thought) and I need to get a fireguard quite quickly (big hearth to cover). The width will need to be at least 3m30cms to cover it. I have tried the usual places in the internet - mothercare etc and even with extendable and extra panels in they are still about a metre short. Anyone able to point me in the direction that I can find one - or does anyone have one I could buy??

Many thanks in advance

This comes with wall fixings and you can use as many or as few sections as you need.

Argos do one that's probably not long enough on it's own but it comes in 2 halves so you could get 2 and add them together maybe?

Thanks - do you think that they would be 'sturdy' enough if you join them together?

We use a babydan playpen for our fireguard.
it can be configured in lots of ways and has 6 sections, each about 50-60cms long.
Would this be any good to you? If so, Mothercare and the other usual suspects have them for about £70 IIRC.

Sassy - thanks I have looked at the babydan - however I am not sure that it will fix on properly and be strong enough once it is used this long - how do you fix yours?
Sorry if I am being thick - but really don't want to spend money on something that may not work

Re. the Argos one - I think it would take a few knocks -I mean it wouldn't collapse like a pack of cards - from memory they clip top & bottom.
Having said that it's nothing like as strong as a stair gate or similar.

I'm pretty sure you can take stuff back to Argos once the package has been opened though so might be worth a try. They must be very common so might be available on ebay or in local paper?

We haven't fixed ours, just left it free-standing, but it is very stable.

I know I'm a bit late to this - but the Argos one is VERY strong. We've had ours almost 4yrs now and it's still going strong - despite the fact that DS2 likes to crawl across the top of it and stand on it!!! - and he's 27lb!
