This one-of-a-kind gate system fits a standard 6 hearth and most BBQ grills providing protection from the hot surfaces and flames of in-use fireplaces, accessing gas starter keys, sharp edges, hard corners and dirty logs. The door section can be placed anywhere in the layout giving you access where needed. Magnet lock technology draws door to the closed position and locks automatically. Each section is hinged with a rotating joint to allow for custom set up. Quick release hardware allows for easy removal when needed. Optional extensions are available in 9 and 24 sections allowing for a custom fit. The system can be connected to use around wood burning stoves or to create a freestanding play area. (We recommend at least 2 additional sections for free standing play area).
