There are different kinds of Richell pet gates available on the market, but almost all of them have one common characteristic – the beautiful Richell hardwood construction, making them extremely attractive along with being extremely functional!
Sometimes, homeowners use a gate to keep the pet from getting into areas of the house that are hazardous to them. For example, the gate can be used to keep dogs from getting into the garage. There are a lot of tools and chemicals that may be dangerous to a pet’s health, and it is better to be safe than sorry.
Richell dog gates come in pressure mount, hardware mount and freestanding pet gate varieties. The Richell freestanding pet barricades are popular due to their ease and portability. These gates are stable enough that the homeowners would not have to worry about the need to install it. Many homeowners are not so confident when it comes to hardware mounting, and freestanding gates are simply more convenient (although barricades at the top of stairs should always be hardware-installed for security!).
Richell free standing pet gates would also be recommended for people who are not so sure where they want it to be placed. As they can easily be moved from one room to another, homeowners who are indecisive need not worry about making anything permanent. It becomes more practical because hardware mounted gates would leave permanent holes and incisions on the walls or on the stairway. Another type is the extendable Richell pet gate, which would not require homeowners to buy additional panels to make the gate coverage wider.
A lot of homeowners use gates to separate pets from children. There can be many reasons to do this. Sometimes, dogs are too big that they can actually hurt the child unintentionally. If the child is eating, the dog should also be kept away, especially since he will probably try to get what the child is eating. For very young children, close encounter with pets can also trigger asthma and other kinds of allergies.
Richell freestanding pet barricades have a standard size of 28.3 inches to 47.2 inches, which make it perfect for doorways and hallways. There are also extra wide or expandable freestanding pet gates or the popular Richell One Touch 150 Pet Gate if the standard is still not enough to cover the lot.
