KiddieRail will provide safety and security for your child when using the stairs and offer peace of mind for parents and childminders alike.
Using KiddieRail is a matter of instructing your child to hold the KiddieRail every time they use the stairs.
Through rigorous testing with the assistance of FIRA, we have demonstrated that KiddieRail can withstand the weight of children up to the age of 6.
More about KiddieRail
KiddieRail is an award-winning adjustable handrail that fits below a standard handrail at a height suitable for young children. From the moment your child begins to learn to walk until they are aged 5, KiddieRail will provide safety and security for your child when using the stairs and offer peace of mind for parents and childminders alike.
KiddieRail also acts as a training aid for parents and childminders, providing your child with a handrail at a natural height in order to teach them how to use the stairs safely from an early age.
KiddieRail is easy to install and incredibly durable, and is supplied with a free 2 year warranty.
“The Safety Standard for safety gates BS EN 1930: 2011 states clearly that they are recommended (and therefore designed) to protect children up to the age of 24 months (as opposed to two years old which could include a child at 35 months!).
Children over the age of 24 months have developed cognitive reasoning (and often before) so may attempt to climb the gate, or will copy the parent and learn to open it. At this point the safety gate is of no safety benefit and introduces some hazards to the growing child.
Teaching your child from the earliest age how to climb stairs in a safe manner is important. Using a handrail offers stability to a child and adult handrails are usually too wide for little hands, and too high to be used safely by the child.
KiddieRail, therefore, seems to fill this obvious gap in stair safety for children over the age of 24 months.“– Carol Ainge, Kid Rapt MD + Child Safety Expert
Commonly Asked Questions
Why do I need a KiddieRail?
The March 2012 Pediatrics Journal estimated that 90,000 children fall on the stairs every year, which works out as once every 6 minutes. Janet Brooks of the Primary Children’s Medical Center actually estimates that figure to be much higher in reality, as not every fall on the stairs earns a trip to the ER. Therefore it is vital to safeguard your stairs as best you can.
