The Stair Barrier Difference


Our baby and pet gates are proudly Made in the USA, rigorously safety-tested to Federal Safety Standards, and designed to complement your home’s décor. The Stair Barrier now offers three unique stair gate configurations/solutions including a wall to wall and an OUTDOOR  option to secure stairs and close off other areas of the home. 


The Stair Barrier’s (BB) Banister to Banister and (WB) Wall to Banister stair gates are the only gates on the market specifically designed for installation on banisters. Constructed with Class 1 Upholstery grade fabric on the exterior and rigid plastic struts and horizontal webbing on the interior, Stair Barriers can be installed on an angle and attached to banisters of all shapes and sizes. A great option for hard-to-gate stairs, the unique design of our baby and pet gates also provides added safety benefits: the fabric eliminates the view of the stairs and the vertical struts make our gates extremely difficult to climb. Without the temptation of the stairs and the horizontal bars to use as leverage, Stair Barriers help prevent the most common types of gate-related injuries.


The Stair Barrier (WW) Wall to Wall features a hand-constructed fabric slipcover on a black aluminum single swing panel gate that features a latch system that allows for one-hand operation and installs at angles up to 30 degrees allowing the location of a stud when mounting on drywall. Designed for maximum safety at the top of a stairway, but perfect for all areas, the Wall to Wall Single Panel Swing Gate is 29 ½” tall and adjustable from 27″ to 42 ½” wide.


An Attractive Welcome

Stairs are often the focal point of a home and can be the first thing your guests see when they walk through the door. Stop choosing between safe and attractive and welcome your guests in style with a Stair Barrier! A wide range of fabrics, many with personalization, are offered to complement any décor.

The Solution for Tricky-to-Gate Staircases

Staircases come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have curved, column or square-shaped banisters, Stair Barriers can easily be secured to them with our simple straps and dual-sided buckles. And for narrow and exra-wide staircases, we offer Custom Widths to accommodate staircases up to 100” wide.

Easy Installation & No Banister Drilling
Stair Barriers arrive ready to be installed with no assembly or additional mounting or extension kits required. Banister to Banister gates install in minutes without tools and Wall to Banister gates install with minimal drilling on the wall side only. An installation kit and easy-to- understand instructions for attaching the mounting hardware to your wall arrive with your Wall to Banister gate. Our easy-to- use strap and buckle system keeps banisters safe and allow Stair Barriers to be used on ANY banister type. The interior structure and no pressure mount system enable Stair Barriers to go from point A to point B at whatever angle is needed. Two flat surfaces are not required!

Structurally Reinforced

Stair Barriers are internally reinforced to prevent our gates from being pulled up or down. And without horizontal bars for kids to use for climbing or openings for kids to get their fingers stuck in, Stair Barriers also prevent the most common injuries caused by gates: cuts and soft tissue injuries caused by gates falling on children while being climbed. Stair Barriers meet the General and Performance Requirements of ASTM F1004, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Expansion Gates and Expandable Enclosures.

Stores Neatly

Stair Barriers open by rolling neatly to one side. When they are not needed, they can be rolled off to the side of the step, self-standing and out of the way. Because Stair Barriers blend into a home’s décor and have no bottom bar to step over, most customers find they’re not in a rush to take them down.

Lightweight, Portable & Easy to Store

Carry the peace of mind you get at home with you! Our Banister to Banister gates roll up easily, weigh only 6 pounds, and install in minutes without tools making them easy to take on the road. Banister to Banister gates are also the perfect solution for grandparents’ homes or any other home away from home. When not in use, they’re easily stored until the next visit.

Stair Barriers are proudly made in Cornelia, Georgia with American-made materials. Quality is critical to us, which is why we want to be able to touch the materials we use in our Stair Barriers, see our gates being built, and know the people making them.
