The Auto Close HearthGate provides maximum safety for use around fireplaces of any shape or size. As a hardware mounted gate, its ideal for use in any extra wide or odd shaped area when mounting points do not line up directly across from each other. All joints rotate; setting individual sections to the ideal angle, and then easily lock in place for a secure attachment. The unique handle design on the extra wide door applies magnet-lock technology, a dual magnet design that automatically draws the door closed and guarantees it locks each and every time! The HearthGate also employs a hold open button, allowing the auto close door to be held open indefinitely until it is pushed closed. The original 5 piece HearthGate will fit a 6 foot hearth immediately; however, additional 9 and 24 sections can be purchased to add to the HearthGate to fit any desired length.
